Valentino Illustrations

 Illustrations I have done for a project on Valentino's Spring Summer 13 rtw collection!
These are part of a series which fit together as an Illustrative lookbook based on the Valentino collection, heres a little background story about it....

Rome, the city which Vakentino calls home holds many memories for Valentino Garavani himself and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the current creative directors since 2008. The spring summer's Valentino girls took a more tender and modest dress. They exuded a soft elegance through clean cut slip dresses, minimal decoration and tone-on-tone embellishments. But always natural. Blush beiges and deep navy's and blacks were the colour of choice. They came from the neo-realism films, looking forward to change with beautiful shrubbery waiting to cover their skin. The Roman temples are where you'll find the Valentino girls, waiting amongst the overgrowing wild shrubbery, always looking ahead.
