red valentino fall/winter 2012-13. pier paolo piccioli & maria grazia chiuri have been as successful co-designers as they could be. in piccioli’s words, the diffusion collection is a romantic idea of a young girl thinking about fashion: mixing something new w/something vintage w/something couture. the result is full of charm: tulle ruffled cocktail dresses that look as sweet as they sound, fitted pants w/cashmere capes for day & for evening, a brocade jacket. w/a simple & feminine colour palette — blacks, off-whites & shades of blush — it has the potential to be as popular as its big-sister collection, valentino. & w/so many items to pick from, i’d love to see a store in canada/united-states soon.
