The new protagonist in the 'covered-up' fashion movement: Valentino

The New York Times Style Magazine said that in its recent March 2013 issue..

"Revealing the body beautiful has become a fashion cliché.. Baring it all looks increasingly like yesterday’s trend." 

Valentino, with his Spring and Fall 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection full of elegant edgy covered style, has been called as the new protagonist in bringing up a new sensibility to a wardrobe -- a 'so ancient and out of fashion' word in the mainstream fashion world: modesty. His new modest style has proven that demure need not mean dull.

How beautiful is this Fall 2013 collection for Valentino designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli? Classic maxidresses and the simple gowns are updated with delicate embroidery, knit, and exquisite layers of lace, or decorated with lovingly luxurious embellishments or ornate creations, such as the white collars that came in laser-cut leather encrusted with beads.

Just as lovely as these delicate creations is the austere grace this collection is bringing up to -- everything evokes a quiet sense of wonder, beauty in demure.
