Beautiful space-inspired fashions

The pre-fall collection by Valentino features stunning, space-inspired dresses, skirts and capes. The dark blue-black pieces have a kitsch 70s feel but are brought up to date by the bold graphic motifs of gold and silver stars and moons. The design house, which is known for its intricate beading and embroidery, has even added constellations to shoulder bags and knee-length boots.

My particular favourite is the stunning evening gown shown below. The classic shape is made dazzling by the addition of a galaxy of stars and planets. Simple yet stunning.

All the photos are taken from the Valentino website.  These beautiful designs are sure to lead to a flurry of high street copies hitting stores this autumn.  In the meantime, get your space vibe by slipping on these cool, silver sandals from Office.
