uh, valentino.. is that you?

I'm obsessed with Valentino's latest Spring/Summer 2010 Couture collection that debuted in Paris. The traditionally feminine, elegant, and awe-inspiring garments craftfully created by this brand has throw fashion enthusiasts and followers for a loop with this sci-fi fantasy collection. The wrapped leggings are reminiscent of a recent Katie Gallagher collection, but the draping is undeniably couture. Valentino, you just blew my fashion mind.

3-D ready.

This photo shoot by Baldovino Barani for magazine ARCHETYPE X, Issue #1 features model Yana Pova. The 3-D finishing ties into the current trend for retailing and graphics in 3-D form, which we’ve seen for months in retail stores worldwide. Hopefully you’ve been lucky enough to find a pair of 3-D glasses in a box of kid’s cereal, ‘cause you’re gonna need them to view these styles.

this outift, i need this.
