Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013-14: Give Me a Sign

Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013-14

These bejeweled clutches from Valentino’s heavenly Haute Couture collection are straight out of a dream. Like all great art, they evoke a sense of something more – in this case, it’s pure fantasy. We saw Charlotte Olympia’s zodiac Pandoras earlier this year, but these ethereal minaudières are on an entirely different level. They’re haute couture worthy of the name. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli crafted the clutches from delicate pearl and topped them with gold astrological signs, coral, and semi-precious stones. And the inspiration was just as extravagant – one of Queen Elizabeth I’s cabinets of curiosity. A collection inspired by the art of collecting – doesn’t get more apt than that! I say clutch one (your sign, of course) with jeans. Why not make everyday life a little more enchanting?
