Beauty has never been so melodic before! However, with the help of the super flabbergasting Valentino Couture spring/summer 2014 collection, skilful designer duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli managed to put couture fashion art a step closer to the art of music and the masterpieces of fashion became untied with the ones of music, especially opera. The inspiration didn’t limit only by the hints that the garments had. It was also reflected with the backdrop, which was made by Maurizio Varamo, the set designer of the Teatro dell ‘Opera di Roma. Thus, all was done to secure the dumbfounding effect, and it did happen as it was planned.
From the very first piece of the charming Valentino Couture spring/summer 2014 collection, our heads started spinning because of the huge diversity of chic and fabulous gowns, one being even more sophisticated and mind-blowing than the other. The design patters applied to them is interesting, too, for instance, turning into musical notes for one of the semi-transparent dresses. Fluffy feathery hints, and the cute scenes printed on the pieces are the following charming aspect of the Valentino Couture spring/summer 2014 collection. So are the ultra-ruffled looks made of light fabrics like chiffon, and put on a great variety of shades like cream, brown, and khaki.
The extreme contrasts of the approach also catch our attention, being minimalistic and pure for one piece, yet intricate and refined for the others. The diversity of prints from floral to butterflies is also significant with the latter. Another interesting design solution is combining the heavy knitted fabrics with the light chiffon-type ones. The counterbalance created with this is quite catchy, too. The widely used fringed details are also noteworthy for these options. So are the delicate lace patterns used for the golden shades, and the pure chic of monochrome and exaggeratedly minimalistic variants, having nothing but the proficient and paradoxically simple design of the fabrics. Beadwork and embroidery accompanying the looks are also significant in the Valentino Couture spring/summer 2014 collection.
So yes if goddesses could have a look at these garments, they would definitely choose some pieces for themselves. Though you’re not a goddess, you can look like one opting for the amazing pieces featured in the Valentino Couture spring/summer 2014 collection!
