Giambattista Valli Haute Couture F/W 2014/15
Amongst the frou frou and fabulousness at the recent Haute Couture shows, perhaps the most refreshing thing were the stripes at Giambattista Valli.
Minimal and wearable; two words not usually synonymous with Haute Couture but Valli pulls off the monochrome lines with sophistication. They were moulded into wrap dresses, in the pleats of structured A-line skirts and wedged between sheer silk. Such a seemingly simple print was given the couture upgrade through the mix of materials and clash of narrow and thick stripes extending in all different directions.
Although this 2014/15 collection was labelled Autumn and Winter, the clean cut turbans, pulled back hair and Moscot sunglasses injected a carefree resort vibe. Seems like this season's Valli woman will be travelling in nothing less than Haute Couture.
