Giambattista ValliHaute Couture Spring Summer 2014 Paris

Runway Review
1/20/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com & Matteo Volta/Imaxtree.com

The spring-summer 2014 haute couture collection from Italian designer Giambattista Valli delivers unapologetic femininity with an outing of florals, pastels and embroidery. The first section features short dresses and skirts with a focus on the hips including structural, bow-like finishes and origami folds. The color palette embraces dreamy pastels, rich jewel tones and ivory hues. Evening wear spotlights long gowns made with tiered skirts. Many of Valli’s designs were accented by crystal embroideries over silk or floral prints.

His focus on the party outfit is built on a base of satin motifs that accentuate around the hips and layering upfront with a long back pleated skirt sometimes with a splice up top. Valli uses fabrics that are embellished densely and heavily with a color palette that shows volumes.

Its obvious Valli has an obsession of the youth in his designs with a bad naughty character feel that shows in the hair and makeup from the morning after, and putting emphasis on the leg silhouette.
