INTO THE ARCHIVES... Valentino 1979 and Valentino FW 2014||15

The wonderful super model Gia Carangi, here photographed by François Lamy for Vogue Italia in 1979, is wearing a Madras pattern dress designed by Valentino Garavani [left]. The pattern and making might have been an inspiration to Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri for FW2014||15 [right], since they are recurrent in various styles seen in this collection.
