Valentino FW13 Garavani Collection

We were so excited when we saw the pictures for Valentino’s Fall/Winter 2013 Garavani Collection hot off the press. Designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the collection features strong contrasting pieces that reflect their interpretation of glorified everyday life. In other words, there’s something in there for every woman and every mood — sensual, dominating, or just simple and sleek.

The wide range of the collection can also be seen from its rich palette of blue, pale yellow, scarlet red and gray, and its extravagant choice of fabrics which include wool/silk, chiné silk, alpaca, brocade and carpet.

We can’t decide which pieces we love more — the classic, monotone pieces updated with design elements such as embroidery or sheer fabrics that are so on trend this season; the playful short dresses that scream girly chic with their scallop detailing and a muted palette that is perfect for fall; the dramatic pieces that recall intricate baroque designs and are sublime in their artistry; or the sleek fluid pieces that would be show-stoppers at any function. We can’t wait to share these runway looks with you — which would be your pick?
