Valentino Pre-Fall 2012: A Lacy Minimalist

The ready to wear line is led by two gifted Italian designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. The coats are minimalistic and straightforward, necessary pieces to refine any day look. The evening long dresses are flowing, velvety with stunning laces. 

The collection doesn't only appeal to avid Valentino fans with all the love for laces and bows. It offers jumpsuit and leather pieces for those with a more carefree spirit, without taking out Valentino's essential ladylike elegance.

I love how they can pull off extremely feminine lacy outfit and ribbons with puffy mini skirts. I personally think the red dress is the most outstanding piece in this collection. The oversize bow and skirt are splendid!
