Valentino Bluegrace

For the VALENTINO Bluegrace collection, blue motifs historically used in Dutch pottery decorate dresses in tulle, crêpe de chine and brocade for the Pre-Fall 2020 collection.

Pierpaolo Piccioli looks to the past to sculpt a new present, balancing the renowned Dutch pottery motifs and archive influences on soft silhouettes. Fabrics are enriched with feathers, pleats and lace embroideries, following the Maison’s timeless codes to shape a new day-to-night aesthetic.

Unexpected accessories and spontaneous combinations mix with solemn couture charm, meeting a dynamic idea of modernity. Last week, I had the chance to explore the collection first hand in the VALENTINO store in Zurich.

Exploring the new collection in a vibrant green look from Valentino S/S 2020.

The store was filled with some amazing pieces and decorated with floral arrangements in white and blue that were gifted to the customers.

Below you can see more official photos of the collection, that is now available in the Zurich stores. TO SHOP THE COLLECTION ONLINE, CLICK HERE PLEASE.

Resort 2017: Miu Miu Pareo Skirt


For Resort 2017, MIU MIU launches the ‘pareoskirt. Inspired by a journey, this infinitely adaptable and audacious design represents the rejection of formality and the independent spirit of the Miu Miu girl as she travels the world broadening her knowledge and experience in the pursuit of personal freedom.


The ‘pareoskirt is available in three variations: in cotton voile Vichy or ‘planet’ prints and in a crêpe de chine check. All are universally recognisable, democratic and as optimistic and light-hearted as the woman who chooses to wear them.


Beloved by continents as diverse as Asia and Africa, the charm of the ‘pareoskirt lies in both its simplicity and immediacy. It is at once familiar – worn equally by men and women across the globe – and highly individual – no two people need ever wear it in quite the same way. In that sense, the ‘pareoskirt is transformative, the ultimate expression of the liberating qualities of the contemporary woman’s wardrobe.


Available from selected Miu Miu stores worldwide, each ‘pareoskirt comes packaged in a special soft fabric envelope stamped with the iconic Miu Miu name, sold at 390€.
Perfect for your next trip to the beach or to layer your next fall look.


LoL, Sandra
