VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE SPRIG -SUMMER 2012
Opulent gowns with a delicate, feminine quality from Valentino Spring/Summer 2012 couture collection. “The collection is pervaded by a desire to return to a real, more intimate dimension of life and style. virginal, bucolic and vivacious, it prefers whisperd introspection to loud exhibition.”
Hallmark of this collection — diaphanous fabrics with dreamy, detailed textures.
A slip of a dress with sprigged floral print and sheer high neck overlay. Lovely!

“Chaîne motifs and watery prints create nuanced color combinations on white backgrounds. Subtle tracery-like embellishments blend with the fabric, yet are eye-catching. Cut-outs create geometric patterns, textured lace is applied to fragile mesh, quilting creates diaphanous designs, and bouillonné motifs turn ripples into decorative elements.”
Chaîne taffeta dresses with pockets.
Long sleeve + floral prints.
Coat dress and strapless dress featuring tone-on-tone embroidery.
