Giambattista Valli SS 17
It is well known that Giambattista Valli has a preference to dress jet-setters. Since he left Ungaro a decade ago he’s been in that orbit, conquering his clientele with a close approach to couture. Mr. Valli creations are feminine, elegant, sophisticated yet they defy and glam and rock as any other brand garment famous for its audacity. The SS 17 collection makes a solid statement and sends a clear message to his fans: there is Giambattista Valli for a while.
L’air du temps has been pretty well ensnared by Mr. Valli’s eye. The trend of using underwear as outwear was present in the runaway, worn specially by those models that have made it popular: Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Flower prints, transparencies, lingerie details and sexy stilettos in a season where high heels are disappearing from the podiums are the main broad elements of this Valli season, a season where liberty comes not only in the fabrics.
