At the Valentino S/S 2013 Show

Valentino S:S 2013 Cover

Romantic gowns, clear accessories, Rockstud revisited and a feminine allure, Valentino‘s Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli rediscover their Roman heritage for S/S 2013. The beautiful collection looks to neo-realist Rome for inspiration.


The slip dress is the new silhouette, sensual yet elegant. Summer cotton is treated as a couture fabric and a new print on silk chiffon dresses skim the body. The 1940’s inspired shape suggests seduction with a modern twist on couture details.

“The final interpretation is left open, however: each woman’s personality is the defining trait.”

Below are my personal must-haves of the collection. To die for!

The transparent Rockstud bag and the matching raincoat along with a pair of crystal Rockstud heels will definitely make their way into my closet. The red leather coat is also on my wish list for the next summer. Stunningly beautiful.


An absolute bestseller will be those embellished plexiglass wedge heels.

Since I bought my first pair of Valentino Rockstud kitten heels two years ago, I’ve been addicted to the house’s metal embellishments. So you can imagine my excitement when Valentino gifted me with this highly limited pair of Red on Red Rockstud shoes. It is as extraordinary as it looks. Designed exclusively for today’s launch of Valentino’s new e-boutique, Shoe Room, there are only 100 pairs on earth, and one is in Sandra’s Closet.
How cool is that?

If you want to be the proud owner of one of them, start clicking fast, they are only available online and will sell out in seconds.

Valentino – Red On Red Rockstud

Red-on-Red-Rockstud-ValentinoThis late afternoon, I came back from my trip with Piaget to Paris for the 26th Biennale des Antiquaires. I had four amazing days and have so much to show you.

When I arrived at my house, a very special gift from Valentino waited for me that left me speechless: RED ON RED ROCKSTUD kitten heels designed by the house’s Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for the upcoming launch of the ultimate on-line shoe shopping experience, SHOE ROOM. Stay tuned as I will keep you posted once it is live.

I will be leaving tomorrow for London Fashion Week and those beauties will definitely be in my suitcase. Thank you, Valentino, for letting me be part of this awesome project!
I love my new shoes!

LoL, Sandra
