Lovers forever... face to face My city or mountains Stay with me stay I need you to love me I need you today Give to me your leather... Take from me... my lace
Did Stevie Nicks, a brilliant songstress and fashion icon influence the design team at Valentino? It’s plausible! Valentino’s spring 2011 collection embodies lots of leather and lace, a possible reference to one of my favorite songs.
Valentino’s collection is stunning and I absolutely fell in love with the idea of the two opposing fabrics used cohesively. It’s taking the two styles of Stevie Nicks- (1) a bad-ass rocker (the use of leather) and (2) combing it with a soft bohemian look (lace) to form the perfect combination of edge meets femininity . Valentino’s collection created a pleasant balance of the ying-yang fabrications to create a modern, wearable collection. Needless to say, I’m a fan of leather and lace.
