My boyfriend got me the most beautiful book for Christmas. I sat reading it, curled up in bed with a cup of Earl grey on Boxing Day, total heaven! I've had to resist tearing out pages (how could I!) to frame and put on the wall because they are just gorgeous. I've always loved Valentino, his designs I think are just on the line of pure fantasy and reality. They are the dresses of your dreams but still wearable and elegant. It features the final collection from Spring 2008 (which I can't believe was four years ago! God I'm getting old) and pages and pages of unbelievably beautiful creations, plus a short foreword by the man himself. Here are some snaps I took of my favourite pages.
