This week has been another exciting week at Parlour X with the arrival of Valentino's Spring Summer 2013 collection. The Italian fashion house's elegant love affair with lace continues this season featuring in jackets and dresses. All the Parlour X girls are swooning over the divine Valentino cotton embroidered macrame lace dress which is available in both black and red. The craftsmanship of the lace embroidery on this dress is second to none - it features a sleek, A-line silhouette, scalloped edges and is perfect standout dress for any special occasion. The black macrame lace jacket is one of my favourite pieces this season as it can be easily teamed with almost anything from a pair of immaculately tailored black trousers or a pencil skirt or even with a pair of slim-fit jeans for an instant day-to-night transition. Valentino's femininity and romantic influences are also reflected in the navy floral broderie anglaise dress. The lightweight cotton makes it the perfect day dress and would be ideal for wandering through the Tuileries during spring and summertime. Valentino But it's not all lace this season, Parlour X has also received an amazing selection of signature Valentino rockstud accessories including the iconic pointed flats and kitten heels which have been spotted on celebrities and stylish women worldwide from Giovanna Battaglia and Anna Dello Russo to Olivia Palermo, Jennifer Lopez and Alessandra Ambrosio. In addition to the highly coveted rockstud shoes we have also received the Valentino trapeze totes and clutches in black and the house's signature red. I am partial to the rockstud leather trapeze bag which is the ideal everyday bag to transport all of my daily essentials. I always take mine with me on my buying trips to Paris as the removable shoulder strap gives me the ability to instantly covert this tote into a handsfree shoulder or crossbody bag when I am running from one appointment to another. For those who prefer to travel light, the rockstud clutch with a detachable wrist strap is perfect to carry day-to-evening essentials.
