Giambattista Valli took to the 60’s with graphic floral embroideries on high collared dresses and tops with drop waist skirts. Yet the 60’s were not the only era he looked to. Valli also took inspiration from fashion elements of ancient Europe in a palette that was crisp and clean, in black and white with pops of pastel pink, yellow, and red.–
The looks had that breeze of girlish touches that make Valli‘s classic collections feel sweet and nostalgic. Flowing plissé chiffon was double banded at the waist with an oversized ruffle collar and gladiator style pumps. Vertical ruffles created a striping effect on a fluttering mini dress before ending in horizontal skirt ruffles.
The finale looks were flowing chiffon evening gowns with high ruff (Elizabethan) collars, double banding, and Roman draping. Gigi Hadid closed out the runway show in a sheer cherry blossom gown that looked beautiful. These are sure to be some future red carpet looks. It all felt incredibly Parisian…and Roman…and English….and gorgeous.
