Cosmic Couture Clutches…

The Valentino 2013 Couture show was truly a cosmic wonder.

It featured lashings of zodiac jewellery and a range of mother-of-pearl minaudières, with jeweled golden clasps cast in the shape of signs of the zodiac (as seen held by the model above).

The astrological referencing hails from ancient Rome, and also the Renaissance Era.

At Valentino, there is a legacy of a grand Romanesque style transcending the collections, and this collection also held a nod to Renaissance Europe. Cabinets of Curiosities, Cabinets of Wonder, Wonder Rooms or “Wunderkammer” was a theme honoured throughout, these were collections typically belonging to rulers and aristocrats that comprised of precious objects – some religious artefacts, historical relics, works of art and antiquities, natural wonders, geological, archaeological oddities and more.

Creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and partner Pierpaolo Piccioli were accessory designers for over a decade at the Valentino fashion house, prior to Valentino Garavani’s departure in 2007. They clearly still have their eye on the details as it wasn’t just the collection of clothes that impressed at the couture show…

Bring back the Wunderkammer for one and all say I! And start me off with one of these beauties please…
