PARIS — Bunches of flowers, rather than limbs, poke out of lace boots. A studded handbag and a clutch shield the intimate parts of a woman, apparently not so skilled at strip poker.
These are among images in “Valentino: Objects of Couture,” a new tome in which cutting-edge photographers and artists were given carte blanche to capture the accessories output of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, who joined the Roman house in 1999 to do bags and shoes, rising to become creative directors in 2008.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
