Ruched mini-dresses and shirtdresses are now the central pieces of the new Valentino spring/summer 2011 collection presented at the Paris Fashion Week. The designers, Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, offer very delicate styles that are perfect for the young woman. A subtle femininity comes from those creations adorned with ruffles, ruches and embroideries. While sheer fabrics and lace are the materials that give a special allure to the short and long dresses. The dominating colours of the Valentino’s summer are white, beige, black, peach and, of course, red. While some vivid colours on accessories create contrasts with the dusky colours of dresses. The final creations of the show are very chic long gowns, perhaps we will see them on the red carpet.

Nude colours imitate the skin shade playing with it and making a pure and delicate effect on outfits. Embroideries, sheer fabrics or soft fabrics are mostly used to match this look and create that sensation of femininity. Nude look is not necessarily about wearing sheer clothing that reveal the body, the idea is to suggest it keeping to feel at ease. Many designers have used the nude palette, which is from beige to soft pink, in their collections creating very elegant styles. The fall/winter 2010 Alberta Ferretti collection is based on delicate and feminine style and those shades are largely employed. The Valentino fall/winter 2010 collection has also different outfits made by soft sheer fabrics combined with nude colours. Keep up to date with this trend, take your inspirations!

Since it was created in 1920 designed by Coco Chanel, the little black dress became a classic of fashion and a must have piece of clothing in every woman wardrobe. The idea was to create a simple and versatile dress wearable during the day with a blazer, and in the evening with appropriate accessories, like pearl jewels as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The LBD (as fashion conscious use to refer to it) is most appreciated when is simple because will never go out of fashion with the passing of time. Anyway, over the years, the model has changed following the current trends and, for the upcoming season, designers are proposing it with sheer fabric details. The model remains a sweetheart cocktail dress but uses sheer detail helping to create a sexy illusion to low-cut styles. Every designer offers at least one dress like this, in their fall/winter 2010 collections, like Alberta Ferretti, Costume National and Emilio Pucci.
Those decorations and the sheer neckline make these new versions, of the little black dress, very elegant and sophisticated. Sometimes sheer fabric is replaced by lace like in this model from Valentino, or is enriched by stones for a more glamorous effect.
Seen on Megan Fox and Halle Berry this kind of style seems to be the best choice to look sexy and elegant in the same time.

Its comfortable, warm and in fashion at the same time! One of the coolest peace of the Fall/Winter wardrobe is cardigan, especially oversize.
It could be fluo like the Moschino Cheap & Chic cardigan, printed like the one of the Moschino Love collection or simply black like the Valentino cardigan. Every models are comfortable and can be worn for every occasion. Sporty the v-neck cardigan or romantic and chic the ruffle one.

For the Valentino spring/summer collection 2009 Valentino made a heavenly Ad Campaign, were amazing dresses are exhibited in their best ways, photographs in colour and black and white are mixed to give the best of the best!
The theme seems very much inspired by the Ancient Greece with their one-shouldered dresses, drape dresses and goddess dresses! In particular the red one-shouldered dress is totally amazing, it’s pure art and beauty and truly elegant! A true investment for a true Valentino lover!
The Valentino ocean green drape dress in chiffon seen as well on the image is equally very graceful because of its harmonious simplicity…

Starting last season, the oversized bow trend this season has taken form and is now flowering. This spring/summer huge bows have been seen all over the international catwalks.
Moschino is one of the biggest users of the ribbons, in the Moschino s/s collection as well as in Moschino Cheap & Chic. Moschino made it black and white and of top of all huge and enormous! Black and white checked dresses and trousers! But not only, Moschino bow dresses are made as well in luminous satin fabrics in different colours… Ocean blue, purple, wine red and many more.
As the Moschino mini dress below in ocean blue satin. A perhaps more suitable choice for evening activities/parties!
Valentino Roma has also made beautiful bow creations, like this exquisite red sleeveless V-neck dress seen in the photo. A very romantic red Valentino Roma dress.
The white Moschino Cheap & Chic bow clutch is also a perfect example of the ribbon fashion this spring and summer. A delicate choice and perfect accessory.
The red Valentino Garavani bow clutch the same, but as a slightly more romantic option. Perfect for elegant evening parties!
