Valentino Resort keeps femininity key

Valentino’s love affair with lace continues into the resort / pre-spring 2013 season, with variations of the fabric forming the basis of shirts, frocks, even a full-sleeve, full-legged green lace jumpsuit. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are all about the pretty and this season, when it wasn’t manifest in lacework, it was in silhouettes of tailored pants umbrellaed by peplum tops, or in maxidresses with high necks and floral prints that could’ve been transported straight from the 1960s. Never ones to overdo it, though, the designer duo kept the femininity grounded with slender kitten heels or masculine loafers.
