Honestly, I'm never one who perpetually keep up with high end designer's runway shows like how Celine's notion of the mid-century modern made contemporary collection is different than that of Chirstian Dior's or A.P.C's. However, seeing Valentino's F/W 13 Collection in real life is really a form of an eye-candy feast. I love everything about it. Well, so intrigued ( and maybe a little due to sheer laziness ) that I couldn't get myself to take out my bulky camera out to take pictures of every masterpiece. Moreover, the designers for this collection creatively incorporates the very essence of Snow White, Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland into their apparels, which only means "Preppy", a word least described in its fashion statement and catalogue, would still be attainable, even though unintentional. Ahh, preppy, you know how much I love preppy.
