Sapphire Blue at Valentino: Fall 2013 RTW – Taking Inspiration from Delft

We have enjoyed perusing Maria Grazia Chiuri and Perpaolo Piccioli’s Fall 2013 RTW collection for Valentino.  Piccioli explained in a collection preview that the duo had taken inspiration from “calm and serene portraits of women by the Flemish Old Masters”.  The delicate blue and white prints below were inspired by Delft ceramics that, according to Vogue, Valentino himself used in a design for his own Fall 1968 collection that propelled him into the national spotlight as a celebrity fashion designer.

It seems that blue and white never really goes out of style.   Take a look at Vogue’s footage of the entire collection.  We also love the pieces of white mink incorporated into some of the ensembles.  What’s not to like at Valentino?

Take a peek at current items from Valentino and Valentino Red (more affordable) in stores now.
