Giambattista Valli Fall 2014–While last season Giambattista Valli embraced a floral garden, the Italian designer’s fall-winter 2014 collection focused on abstract prints and textures for an superbly ladylike outing. The silhouette this season plays with a sculptural shape without being too over bearing. Cocoon-like skirts and coats which cut off above the knee bring a flirty take to Valli’s red, oxblood, blush-tone and black and white designs. Fabrics feature delicate lace, bold metallics and rich brocades that while romantic are also perfectly grownup. The bag of choice for fall is a boxy tote finished in an exotic skin with a circular emblem decorating the front.
