red valentino f/w 2013

New York Fashion Week is here! The shows start in earnest today, but a few brands have already unveiled their Fall/Winter 2013 collections, including Red Valentino. The younger, more affordable line from the Italian house turned to a whimsical inspiration this season: Hansel and Gretel. The fairytale's German origins are evident in the folky details and prints, and the collection is imbued with a healthy dose of sweetness (the story's heroes were being fattened up on a diet of cake and candy to make them as delicious as possible, after all). Many of the skirts even have an adorable, cupcakey volume, and some of the standout pieces make plaid seem quite ladylike. My favorites are the Hansel-inspired riding jacket and cape. While some pieces in the collection are a bit on the saccharine side, these perfect staples would fit perfectly with any wardrobe. See the complete collection here.
