Review of Valentino Pre S/S 2013

Simple, understated, and feminine would be the words I would use to describe Valentino's pre- Spring/Summer 2013 collection. There is a lot of floral detail in the collection- it wouldn't be Valentino if it didn't contain the feminine staple, however this season it not in-your-face as many floral trends have been these past few seasons.

The pastel palette as well as materials such as lace and crochet rather gave it a more elegant, simple vintage feel - a refreshing change from the digital print craze from past seasons.

The collection overall contains very simple lines, there are no ornate busy details that we have seen in many of last summer's collections. Beautiful dresses made with multi-coloured floral crochet were set beautifully against a backdrop of beige as well as sheer fabric sexing it up with Peter-Pan collars making an appearance.

Long, up to the neck dresses which we also saw in the Dior collection were made with pastel and lace, with a fitted top with the dress billowing out at the bottom.

Key Features of Valentino S/S 2013:

- Pastel Floral Prints
- Crochet floral on beige and lace
- Ruffles replaced by  simple clean lines
- Peplum blouses with cigarette trousers
- Fitted full neck dresses
- Simple, feminine, vintage.
