Monday Morning Inspiration/Valentino, It's All About the Flower

It's been a while since I posted a Monday Morning Inspiration piece. I am so in love with the Valentino Fall 2018 Collection, so I just had to share!

This is the piece that initially struck me. I absolutely love the flower applique. 

The flowers are repeated throughout the collection in such lovely ways. 

In an evening gown.

Fringed into a sweater.

Subtly on the sides of the wrap skirt. BTW, I love the idea of a wrap skirt over a pair of pants!

Other colors were used that are just as lovely.

There are solids in the collection. Look closely and you'll see the flowers quilted into the fabric. Gorgeous!!!

And finally, yes the hood is a little goofy, at least in my opinion. But, it does convey the theme of a flower. While I wouldn't do that hood, I do LOVE the coat! The sleeves are especially pretty.

The fashion show video is wonderful, I've included it below. It's only about 17 minutes long. Just enough time for a little break, and a cup of tea :) 

The first piece has me inspired to do a dress. I've ordered the fabric, so step 1 is complete. I would really like to enter it in the Designin' December competition. Now to see if I can make it happen :/  

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. Love those flowers. Good luck in the competition.

    1. Let's see if I get it done by the end of December!!!

  2. I loved this collection too! I made a dress around that time that I only realized afterward resembled the florals in the beige dress with the large yellow blooms on the shoulder/bust area that you've shared above :)
