Can we talk about Valentino's accessories? I realize that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli started at the brand designing the gorgeous bags and shoes, and have since become the creative directors. And the clothes for Spring 2012 are heavenly; inspired by Mexico, the dresses are stunning creations of lace and sheer fabrics. Seeing them in person does leave you a bit breathless.
But it's the accessories that really get me. For as ladylike as the Valentino frocks are, the bags and shoes are tough, sexy, and a little bit rock and roll. Just the way I like them. Pyramid studs adorn buttery leather bags; a series of fantastic clutches have a studded strap that emulates a knuckle-piece.
