Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013/14
Ok so I might be a little bias when it comes to all things Valentino, i'v been in love with the brand since our first introduction at the campus library while i was hassling my way through my Theory of Fashion assignment during my first year at Tech. The brand has consistently deposited simple elegantly designed garments made of the highest quality craftsmanship since its inception, it is pure magic.
The Labels current designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are described in the 25th issue of OnAther Magazine as discreet and dignified, every bit as their collaborative designs.
"Beauty is not necessarily about clothes in which you show too much of yourself,"Chiuri continues in the article, "We wanted to portray women as paintings, to express emotion and give them a new dignity."
The founder of the Design house Valentino Garavani and his longtime business partner Gaincarlo Giammetti continue to sit in the front row at their successors' shows and expressed that they are extremely happy and relieved with the results of the current teams work. Giammetti said their work was based on modesty, without the usual commotion such as presumption, scandals and stardom behaviour...a lesson to the entire fashion world."Indeed.
