Spring 2016 Couture: Giambattista Valli2:57 PM
If you are not that familiar with Giambattista Valli name and aesthetics, just remember that this is the man (we prefer genius) who dressed Rihanna at the 2015 Grammy Awards in a pink explosion of tulle. #iconic
For the spring 2016 couture collection, the Italian designer took inspiration from Paris’s most famous gardens, that is Jardin des Tuileries, Jardin du Luxembourg, Palais-Royal and Parc de Bagatelle. However it is not a secret that Valli has a thing for flowers, but given the outcome I guess that nobody would ever get tired of that.
Once again we are in front of a charming, feminine and romantic collection: despite the heavy use of ruffles, colourful florals embroidery, appliqués and tulle, all the designs showcased an undeniable aura of modernity. On the runway a series of mini-cocktail dresses, empire-waist gowns, Watteau backs and bishop sleeves.
The show ended of course in a dreamy explosion of tulle: Valli’s signature.
