Valentino’s Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection was inspired by the opera. “It’s a fashion opera. A show has to be a show,” said designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. It was clear that all the adornment and embellishment on each masterpiece that walked the runway was inspired by elaborate opera costumes. These accessories have landed in the Valentino boutique at NorthPark Center for you to get your piece of the runway collection.
The first exquisite piece is a fringe clutch in engrained calfskin. This clutch is adorned with a metal griffin and retails for $1595. It is also available with your own astrological sign in other various colors that can be ordered at the boutique.
The second handbag is a fringe tote with hand-made knotted fringes. This tote retails for $2,945 and is available in maroon, dark green and black.
My favorite item is this scarab-adorned sandal in the dark green color. This shoe is simple in design and retails for $995.
