{PFW} Giambattista Valli’s Parisian Fleur

Inspired by the gardens of Paris, Giambattista Valli focused his Spring 16 Couture collection around the beauty of the flower. The motif was realized through a variety of forms, including floral appliqués, tulip shaped bubble sleeves, ruffled edging, and embroideries.


Valli introduced the perfect balance between the soft, sweet florals with forward leaning design and tailoring that made the looks seem fresh and chic. And he toyed with texture throughout the collection of mini dresses, creating riveting looks made for a young fashionista who dares to bare.

Personal favorites: The bubble-sleeve mini dress with a cutout racer front with beading that only appeared “floral” up close, but from afar, looked like a linear print – a great pop against the white backdrop of the rest of the dress; A ruched capelet clasped at the front with black beading over a mini dress with a white textured skirt and gold beaded top; the entire collection of gowns. No, I can’t choose. I love his play in volumes, creating both romantic, ethereal gowns as well as voluminous show stoppers. Seriously, Valli. Seriously. I love your clothes.
