Presented at Paris Fashion Week, Valentino’s Ready to Wear Spring Summer 2014 collection represents a combination of garments for conservative women who prefer long sleeved dresses, as well as for modern women. Even if the warm season leads to more vivid colors, the main chromatic palette chosen by the two Italian designers incorporates dark colors such as black, burgundy and green accompanied by beautiful embroideries displaying ethnical motifs.
The fringe element is also present attached to bags and suede, giving the whole collection a more modern feel.

The collections’ preciousness is clearly given by the evening gowns and their mix between lace and embroidery. Maria Grazia and Pierpaolo Piccoli perfectly embodied the gold element included in jewelries, shoes and bags.
What I really liked about this collection was the fact that designers chose to let the clothes speak louder than the styling of the models. The models had a very discrete make-up and hairstyle, with hair accessories that further emphasized the gold detail.
