Fashion obsessed I may be but, the link to fashion and interiors is undeniable as trend prediction and style inspiration.

   The latest Valentino collection is a nod to the 70’s (ditch those skinny jeans) yet a glamourous and ladylike bohemian.  And the stars are aligned to be sure with the cosmic part of the collection.

Their review says it all…

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli signed up the British textile designer Celia Birtwell, the ex-wife of the late Ossie Clark and the woman behind his floral prints in the 1970s, as well as the Italian Pop Artist Giosetta Fioroni as collaborators this season. With a dozen collections to make a year (13 if you count the one-off couture show they put on here in New York in December), it’s a wonder the Valentino designers don’t do this kind of recruiting more often—especially when you consider how lovely their Pre-Fall collection turned out.

Birtwell contributed floral prints and embroideries inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s La Primavera, and Fioroni designed a heart motif stitched with the phrase “Your eyes are the eyes of a woman in love” that appeared on everything from sweaters to gowns. The peace-and-love vibes were intentional. “We want to believe in a fantastic future, ” Grazia Chiuri said over the phone from Rome, acknowledging that current circumstances make a positive point of view an imperative. Fashion can’t change the world—would that it were that easy—but even a committed nihilist would be hard-pressed to deny the beauty of a series of sheer gowns embroidered with stars, planets, and swirling constellations.

The daywear offerings were expansive in other ways. Camo-print separates are starting to feel a bit tired and they didn’t really jibe with the designers’ theme. But their cropped jeans and denim flares here looked extra sharp.

  1. gosh these are stunners. Just imagine dressing in Valentino! Bliss!

  2. I would love to find that sheer Valentino black fabric with the planets and stars – perfect for a ballroom dance costume for a routine choreographed to the music from Harry Potter.
