LACE me up

Current State of Mind: Thrilled
Music Mood: The water

Another post on the VALENTINO aw 13/14 collection. If I quote the designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli:
"We were making connections between what they call the severe yet sensual portraits of the Dutch masters for this collection. "We wanted to capture women in a private moment," Chiuri said. "In this show, the face is very important"—as it was for Vermeer and company". They are speaking about Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring.
These pieces have such intricacy in the details.  What we see: a lot of lace and laser-cut leather encrusted with beads or in "Calvinist" plain cotton piqué. The soft wool with the lace collar is to me, a combination from heaven. I am in love with the lace. The red nails make you wander if this girl is as obedient as she seams....
"If you can dream it....you can do it"
