Haute Couture Paris FW 2017-18, Giambattista Valli

In his romantic and dreamy style that has always been at the heart of his high fashion collection, Giambattista Valli presented in Paris his last haute couture fall/winter 2017-18 collection, giving to the press and the public who loves him and follows him for years an essay of his innate ability to make feminine and sophisticated every woman thanks to his great imagination and creativity underpinned by a masterful tailoring.

On the catwalk it goes from mini, both wrapping as in A-line dresses in tweed for daytime  than in those with flouce skirt and top with sleeves puffed, even with train on the back until volumes before suggested by by studied drapes inspired to greek goddess and then absolutely compelling as during the grand final with grand soirée dresses that are a true triumph of tulle and  albeit between ruffles and overlappings, they look like light as clouds.

Giambattista Valli is a couturier with the will to seduce his clients gifting dreams and, as always, especially flower, at least symbolic, as in his floreal prints and his incredible handed embroidery that are a real spectacle of superior craftsmanship and poetry.
