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.
Emma Wears Valli–Actress Emma Watson hit the red carpet yet again for the 2014 ELLE Style Awards held in London, England, earlier today. The starlet (who recently ranked on AskMen’s Most Desirably Women List) wore a Giambattista Valli spring haute couture look featuring beaded top and silk dress. Emma paired the look with black shoes from Christian Louboutin.
Giambatista Valli Spring 2014 Haute Couture–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.
Giambattista Valli’s Light Spring – Focused on daywear, the spring-summer 2014 collection from Giambattista Valli featured the Italian designer’s signature embellishments but were toned down for a light and romantic outing. Sheer dresses which opened at the navel, crop tops and short-shorts bring a luxe ease to the new season. Yet, despite this lightness, the Valli woman’s upcoming spring is far from minimal. Skirts with folded pleats, tridimensional flower appliqué and gold, corn-stalk embroidery offer the rich textures of the season. The color palette is as equally dreamy as the designs, with light neutrals, pastels and ochre defining spring.
Giambattista Valli Fall Haute Couture – For his fall 2013 Haute Couture collection, Italian designer Giambattista Valli focused on romantic florals for an outing of ethereal femininity. Embroidered flower patterns take shape with dainty silhouettes featuring bouncy ruffles, gathered silk and bustier style dresses. A color palette of soft ivory, blue and pops of red make for a rather light fall outing; including skirts that mostly fall above the knee and sheer layers once again taking on the floral motif.

Secret Garden – Giambattista Valli’s fall 2012 haute couture collection was inspired by all things natural and fantastical. Marking his third season presenting during Paris couture week, the Italian designer enchanted with a palette of hues found in nature such as forest green, lilac purple and rose red. Models walked the runway with butterfly accessories and netted veils covering their heads. Voluminous ruffles matched with floral prints took the whimsical collection into dramatic territory.
Valli’s Demure Luxe – After last season’s luxe ethereal showing, Giambattista Valli turned down the volume for his namesake label’s fall 2012 collection presented during Paris Fashion Week. An autumn color palette of black, ivory and scarlet set the stage for bold, graphic prints and ladylike shapes. Floor length gowns were segmented by mid-size metallic belts. Autumn also saw many tweed separates in two toned looks with geometric shapes. Beauty for the show included slicked back hair and understated makeup to reflect the minimal elegance of the new season.
Dream of Couture – Giambattista Valli played with hard and soft elements for his sophomore haute couture collection presented in Paris this week.

Models also wore large floral hair ornaments to match stunning gowns in hues of plum, fuchsia, ivory and black.
