A Love Letter To Valentino

Now playing: “Let in the Light” by Moderat


Hello blogosphere,

As mentioned in a previous post, I’m always lost for words by the beautiful creations of Valentino. I think just a few words of gratitude will suffice praising one of the gods of high fashion (all images: style.com)


Dear Valentino,

Your obsessive passion for intricate details and ornamentation makes me swoon. You are the master of the sheer, embellished dress; with a palette of coral, grey-hued powder blue, seashell and ivory, you paid tribute to the treasures of the seaside (S/S ’15 Ready-to-Wear), some gowns printed with seashells and coral, others embroidered with starfish, sailing ships and other deep-sea paraphernalia.
















Meanwhile, your Sala Bianca 945 event showcased an incredibly powerful collection consisting purely of whites; from strikingly minimalist, clean-cut looks to feminine, chiffon and lace romantic frills, sometimes both aesthetics combined, I’ve fallen for the way you’ve taken one singular palette and created such distinctive looks.

Valentino, you’ve captured my heart for eternity.

All my love,
