Giambattista Valli Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2017 Paris
Something is going on at Giambattista Valli. In the maison where ideas take flight, almost giving his woman wings. Or most probably the young lady who becomes a woman. Pieces of lingerie reveal parts of the body, cut asymmetrically, and worn with tiny pieces of knitwear underneath. Tunics woven from precious memories and transparencies revealing long, toned legs, finished with platforms which lifted the silhouette and added to the sense of a volatile, fragile sensuality.
“Memories of a discreet girl and a difficult time in her life,” Giambattista Valli explained to MFF, “two introspective moments in the life of my woman. She speaks and I listen.” A voice which could be heard loudly and clearly, like the volumes which filled coats with a sporty vein, bomber jackets that had K-way elements, finished with puffball cuffs. These styles alternated with florals and fairy-tale embroidered long dresses, with boots that echoed the same botanical references. They sparkled with flowers like the collars of maxi crystals which decorated the show. Sparkling, in the final look as well, the dress worn by Gigi Hadid - heroine of the media aesthetic - who stepped out of the photos and into real life. Sexy. Wearing a honey comb mesh which hid nothing but her underwear.
