Embroidered Florals

I find myself continuously drawn to Valentino. Italian designer Valentino Garavani held his first significant show in 1962 at Florence’s Pitti Palace, an appropriate setting for his opulent collection. Gorgeous lace, feminine details, gossamer-like chiffon, and a vibrant shade of red were Valentino’s hallmarks. Today, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli honor the house’s heritage while adding more modern touches.

This past season, Valentino’s standout hit was the¬†Embroidered Silk Organza Gown in White and Green.¬†The gown showcases expressive and vibrant embroidery that mimics pointillist brushstrokes. Claire Danes wore this number while accepting presenting at the¬†20th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Norway. It’s a STEAL at merely $25,000. I kid, I kid.

Something special happens to my friends and I when we discuss couture designers. We intelligent, double diploma-ed, women begin to curse like sailors. As my friend Erica says, “Fuck you Valentino for making my dreams come true!” and my friend Jennell continues, “Honestly, I can’t even talk about Valentino or Chloe without dying of envy for those who can frock about in that shit.” It is just too much beauty for we plebeians to handle.
