Classic Valentino is Showcased in the Spring 2013 Line
Valentino is a name synonymous with classic fashion for men and women, and their spring line for 2013 showcased that classic style in cuts that were simple but elegant and demure and very wearable. The line once again proved why Valentino is considered one of the best in the industry, with simple but elegant details that made every piece stand out.
First up on the runway was a simply cut black dress with triangular bodice and peek-a-boo dots along the front. The loose skirt coupled with the spaghetti strap sleeves gave it movement and flow while keeping it clingy to the model’s frame, a perfect choice for the runway. The pattern was repeated in a soft cream color that was a good option for spring.
Another classic Valentino offering was a black leather dress with a sheer overlay that gave it a sexy style. The longer hem kept it modest but the material was a great choice for a bit of edgy sexiness, and the sheer fabric over the ensemble also added some visual appeal.
A more flowing and feminine sheer number was also featured, with crisscross detailing at the front over a lacy fabric that was added for a nice touch. The organza material draped softly across the model’s frame with a slight flare at the hemline, and the long sheer sleeves made it a perfect choice for evening. It was perfectly cut and just a bit sexy.
Square cut dresses were also showcased, including one deep navy number that had a large white lace inset along the cleavage. The one piece design of the material and curved neckline gave it a retro vintage feeling and the mock turtleneck style kept it from being overly casual and drab. The material flowed easily from the shoulders to the knees and the color was just deep enough to keep it from being dull.
Another beautiful flowing number on the runway was a sheer lace design with high neckline and long sleeves, and flowing skirt. It too was a lovely vintage and retro touch, with a solid bodice under the flowing lace that made it modest yet stunning. In true Valentino style, it showed just enough skin to be feminine yet not so much to be distracting.
A few softer dresses in taupe and gold finishes were also displayed in the line, with simple straight cuts and delicate straps adding feminine appeal. Delicate crystals over a soft pattern gave each piece eye-catching appeal and the soft gold shade was a welcome break from the standard black and taupe of the line. Valentino has always known how to dress a woman and the upcoming line for spring 2013 did not disappoint.
