Valentino's Fall '15 runway collection is absolutely beyond stunning. Each piece is hand crafted with floral prints and embroideries to capture the eye of the beholder as one moves in stride. The collection was inspired by the ever so famous painting, La Primavera (aka Allegory of Spring), by Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli. The painting resembles figures in a garden during the lush growth of spring. It features a lady wearing a floral crown and floral-patterned gown, spreading flower petals on the ground that she has captured within her dress. Another fascinating component in this historical painting is that it features over 500 species of plants and 190 different flowers. Its every horticulturist dream to own a copy of this painting.
Being amused by Valentino's collection, we designed a lovely bouquet to compliment our favorite gown from his Fall '15 runway show. Our design features blue slate succulents, resembling star-like body, and silver brunia, which compliments Valentino's stars and planets also featured in his latest sheer collection. Keeping things on a muted scale, we incorporated dusty miller and kochia. The two slate greenery are lovely to work with when wanting to create volume in a composite.
