"Your Eyes are the Eyes of a Woman in Love"

Damn straight sister!  I love, love, love the Valentino pre-fall collection.  It is my perfect world: Valentino's world and the vintage world of Celia Birtwell.  Celia Birtwell's world is a magical place, lushly landscaped with inspiration from Sandro Botticelli's La Primavera.  And Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli's world is the wonderful world of Valentino - a perfect placed filled with memories of  Mr. Valentino but thoroughly placed in the present... and in the future because we unfortunately will not see these clothes for a few months.  But as Pierpaolo Piccoli said, "We want to believe in a fantastic future."

Yes we do...

Some of my favorites:

The power is in the Birtwell flower:
