Giambattista Valli's Couture Collection
The Italian-born master sure does know how to wow his audience and a starry front row: he does it season in, season out. This time the talk about the collection is not limited to witty articles about Celine Dion, who attended the show and didn’t hold down her impressions and feelings about the show. Valli’s show kicked off with models wearing shades of white and cream in different lengths of hemline, gradually intensifying the color palette and silhouettes throughout the show.
The Valli girl has a lot to chose from for her high fashion outings: from baby-doll reminiscent dresses to floating floor-length gowns with layers of taffeta and chiffon, some of them reminding a delicacy deserts, no less.
Giambattista played with size, color and proportions, adding puffed princess-like sleeves to many of his creations. The designer also played up the recent red-carpet favorite look—sheer skirt with subtlety in best traditions of high fashion.
The color palette dominating the runway was reductive—white, black, pale blue and flashes of bold red. A floral princess on the way to her higher rein—the one theme that could encapsulate the fantastic show, Giambattista has once again presented.
The drama came later in the show, with Valli's signature tiered ruffles making an appearance. For his Fall 16 line the statement tulle ruffles were worked into a light blue cape and a floor sweeping gown, shown in grey, burgundy and white.
Fashion master Giambattista Valli played with size, proportion and dimension in a typically perfected couture display.
The Italian-born designer began with figurative versions of the Babydoll silhouette — the famed ’50s nightie style that flares out at the hip with puffy sleeves.
The first in a series of white gowns had creatively gathered — and purposefully off-kilter — segments in the sleeves that came across as abstract, yet feminine.
They soon merged into floor-length diaphanous silken gowns with Grecian-style gathered, or segmented, detail around the bust.
As ever, the color palette was reductive — with white, black, pale blue with flashes of bold red.
But it was handled with panache and subtlety.
It made some fashion critics wonder why he has not reportedly been touted for the Christian Dior top job.
这位出生在意大利的大师肯定知道如何让他的观众和前排明星惊叹：他在赛季中，赛季后。这一次有关的演说不限于有关Celine Dion的诙谐文章，Celine Dion参加了表演，没有按她的印象和感受的表现。Valli时装秀的序幕上，模特穿着不同长度的底边，白色或奶油色，轮廓颜色是渐变的。
