Dear Prudence: Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013

Valentino Autumn/Winter 2013

I'm in love with Valentino's fall collection. The collection is quite prim and prude but there is something alluring about it. Valentino presents us with a white fur coat resembling Snow White, the image of innocence and purity while also showing us a seductive red leather dress. Even the music at the runway suggests contrasting themes, a melodious instrumental is followed by Sacrilege by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The schoolgirl plaits are contrasted with lace corsets and magnificent ballgowns. The white lace collars and cuffs are so pretty, they remind me of Anna Karina in Alphaville and Winona Ryder in Mermaids (bringing everything back to movies as usual). The sheer paneling and scalloped sleeves are very pretty and feminine but my favourite is the second floral dress, I'll definitely be on the look out for something similar
