Dressing In Delft. Valentino's New Women's Dresses Take Cues From The Netherland's Classic Blue & White Pattern.
Italian fashion House Valentino recently unveiled his 2013-2014 Fall Winter Collection of RTW Womenswear. A stunning line, the new collection includes some gorgeous dresses and gowns whose patterns take their cue from the traditional blue and white patterns seen on ceramics and earthenware from Holland.
Using textiles whose imagery is similar to Delft (and a bit of China's Willow) patterns commonly seen on vases, ginger jars and dinnerware, the dresses made of brocades, silks, organzas and cotton are wearable objets d'art.
The entire collection has been inspired by Flemish paintings, I have just shared with you the blue and white pieces. Be sure to see the entire beautiful collection at Valentino.com
