There are trends that are timeless, among them being the retro style, femininity, elegance and flintiness, and there are brands that always manage to cover these trends in the most fabulous way, among them RED Valentino being the winner. The younger sister line of Italian fashion house Valentino brings a real fairytale collection for the fall 2013 season, filling the Fashion Week with loads of romanticism and a dreamy allure. The RED Valentino fall/winter 2013-2014 collection was unveiled on Tuesday, February 5, 2013, and it is literally flooded with magical outfits perfect for princess fashionisers.
This year, the creative directors of RED Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli looked to the “Hansel and Gretel” fairytale by the Brothers Grimm to create the gorgeous RED Valentino fall/winter 2013-2014 collection. As a result, we have an absolutely charming and whimsical collection filled with gingerbread prints and folklore details characteristic of Germany, the native country of the fairytale. Gretel inspired the designers to create the knit corset with peplum details, which comes matched with a breathtaking full skirt, while Hansel sparked the idea of designing the plaid and houndstooth hunting jackets.
Lots of charming prints and patterns, delicate colors and marzipan-inspired rose details, sophisticated lace and embroidery, bows and ribbons, as well as denim and warm knitwear are the key ingredients of this lovely story. The RED Valentino fall/winter 2013-2014 collection brings a parade of sleeveless full-skirt dresses, bubble skirts, lovely capes, corsets, blouses and knitted sweaters, stylish coats and blazers, velour pant suits and knitted cardigans. The looks demonstrated by Siri Tollerod come accessorized with Cinderella-inspired and Victorian shoes, worn with lace knee socks, cute ribbons worn on the milkmaid braids, embroidered bags and clutches.
While fairytales are created for children to make their lives more colorful, the RED Valentino fall/winter 2013-2014 collection has been designed to fill your life with childhood innocence and a super-cute style. Get inspired from the gorgeous lineup and turn your fall into an authentic fairytale!
