Grand Elegance at Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 16

Grand Elegance at Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 16

From WWD:

Valli opened his show with his familiar Sixties-flavored shifts, their shoulders and sleeves ringed with organza ruffles; intricate floral embroideries circling the neckline or blooming from the hems. Caped backs added a flourish to some cocktail dresses; sparkly jabots to others.

The Empire dresses were lovely, with tight bodices hoisting folds of white chiffon, or dreamy nightgown versions with dense, 3-D embroideries clustered around the bodice. For the finale, grand ball gowns made of tiered and pleated tulle were as impractical as couture gets, yet had a frothy charm in their blush colors and weightless appearance.
