Valentino Takes Us to a Mystical Garden

Last week’s Valentino Pre-Fall collection no doubt seemed to be our preview for today’s Haute Couture collection in Paris. As those butterfly embroidered gowns may have just been the inspiration. As Valentino’s Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli take us on an Imaginary journey to a Mystical Garden, far far away. With a butterfly embroidered cape. Feathers top off a tutu in rich hues of: Olive, Oxblood, and Nude. A Cheetah gets drawn onto a floor length evening gown. Fringe tops off an Asian inspired robe. While lace covers Neutral hued evening gowns. All apart of Valentino’s mystical journey. Bon Voyage!

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2014 Haute Couture: “Life is a Butterfly”

“Life is a butterfly!!!” Jean Paul Gaultier told Vogue. “So all the collection is that!”
As 1940s silohouettes and ruffles are key throughout the collection. Jean Paul Gaultier uses the inspiration of a Butterfly, perfectly interpreting it into his collection in the most feminine, yet boldest way.
