HOW is this only Giambattista Valli’s second couture collection? You’d think judging by the sheer intricacy of every single piece on the runway that Giambattista Valli had decades of couture experience under his belt, but as we reported at the end of last year, the Italain designer received couture status after just one collection!
His models reportedly walked with ease down the catwalk at Paris’s Hotel de Crillon in the beautiful, versatile, and sometimes even instantly wearable pieces. As much as we adore extravagant couture gowns that are more like works of art than clothes, we loved how simple and wearable these designs actually were. We think we see a mini-trend emerging for Couture Fashion Week!
All of the designs were definitely created with the wow-factor in mind, as each and every one made some sort of a bold statement. Although the silhouettes were predominantly feminine and forgiving, most of the pieces came with cinched waists to add some Giambattista Valli-esque definition and structure.
In a word: incredible!
