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.
