Valentino's Spring Summer 2013 collection seems tailor made for the Downton Abbey girl. Conservatively covered arms, flowing skirts and lace detailing are luxed up with intricate beading in sumptuous fabrics and fine tailoring.
Evening wear is also more covered up but some items do have more transparent lace details.
Valentino 2013 S/S Haute Couture goes even further back into the renaissance period with breathtakingly beautiful gowns and capes.
Menswear this season is less adventurous with tone on tone variations in colour blocking. I saw that round shape in the tailored shirts and a couple of camo prints.
