Paris haute couture: highlights from Giambattista Valli

Posted on

Giambattista Valli opened with pajama stripes and shirt details, immediately lending proceedings a sense of ease that ran through the show, the laidback luxury perhaps best summed up by the models’ retro sunglasses and silk hair scarf up-dos. 

That’s not to say the collection was lacking glamour: from the get-go the iridescent finishes and metallic hardware on shoes added sheen to the multiple takes on monochrome stripes. 

Color came in the form of pastel florals, delicate embroidery, lace, feathers, fur and plenty more pajama shirts. Those florals became almost pixelated into modern, abstract pointillist dots of color before the final flourish: a quartet of brides in four different shades from Valli’s core palette. Scarves and sunglasses in place, of course.
