Friday morning, Carmen Marc Valvo presented his FW13 collection. I fell in love - ladylike with edge. It struck the perfect balance - so beautifully tailored into elegant cuts, toughened with leather. Fur and sequins added to a sort of controlled opulence - it was over the top glamour that managed to stay refined and wearable. It was Old Hollywood meets 1950s Paris meets Russian socialite - and you can wear it in New York. Luxe and ladylike without losing the attitude.
