Valentino Fall2013 Haute Couture – Encyclopaedic Couture

"Enchanting, encyclopaedic couture," the show note read. With all the beetles, dragonflies, anthropods and even lion head embroidery, the collection instantly reminds you of the encyclopaedia. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli presented a luxurious heritage Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection with an earthy essence.

Intricate ornate embroidery, rhinoceros and lion print merged with luxurious lace surface, capes, herringbone tweeds, velvet, laser cut dresses, oriental motifs, crystal, satin, embellishment, A-line silhouette, raffia, capes, menswear-inspired fabric and hues were some of the key elements and feature of this curiosity cabinet-inspired collection.

It was interesting to see the way gold surface lace and crystal played with the simplicity of camel pieces- luxuriously vintage yet minimal and modern.
