christmas is literally right around the corner- you know what that means? time for red!

the last few years during the holiday season i’ve done some sort of post about valentino and the fashion brand’s signature color, red. there really is nothing like a valentino red dress, and there really isn’t anything more perfect than the gift of valentino.

well, just recently valentino opened up a new flagship store in shanghai, china. to celebrate this occasion the design duo at valentino, maria grazia chiuri and pierpaolo picciolli, designed a special collection of ready-to-wear and couture for the opening (not that 6 collections a year weren’t enough). the best part was every look was in red! see the whole collection here.

it’s almost christmas- i can’t think of a better topic than red. when i think of red, i think of valentino, i think of a red valentino dress. probably yet another unconventional holiday post, oh well, i hope you enjoy and see the beauty- in the red!
