Giambattista Valli Haute Couture SS17

untitled-1Giambattista Valli decided this time to pick his couture inspiration from the reality of life. He dropped the fantasy of haute couture. Valli cited the inspiration as a girl who is traveling, unpacking and found her clothes from being stored in a suitcase. All had pressed creases, an idea exposed before into the runway by Alessandro Michele at Gucci as well as Celine and Prada. The first few looks of the show were: a series of ivory silk tunics and with pants gridded with fold lines, some plain and others with crystal and pearl-encrusted 1020-1 crystal- and feather-embroidered duchesse Eighties mini satin dresses followed by lacy botanicals ball gowns.untitled-2

Later on, Valli boosted the drama in the show by offering some Victorian numbers and mini dress with a huge tulle on the waist.1020-4

As usual, Valli should add his signature design in each of his shows: Ruffles.  Countless yards of tulle and mousseline were constructed into extravagant yet minimalistic ball gowns. We can assume that Ball Gowns are back this season. This is ultimate couture.untitled-3
