Most fashion designers usually reserve butterflies as a theme for their summer collections, so it is unusual to see them being used to adorn garments during a period of the year when they are less active. These garments will provide a nice splash of colour throughout the forthcoming grey, cold, days which are the Autumn/Winter season.
I like equally the stark contrast of the tailored pieces below, which are simpler, more tailored and less fussy than the embroidered pieces above.

Some accompanying Valentino butterfly accessories. The ad campaign for the accessories below, was devised and shot by controversial photographer Terry Richardson. It is also his tattooed arm that features in the ads. Great use of pattern (print and tattoo), against a plain background.
