Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Spring 2012
Being his second haute couture show, Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli impresses as he designs a very wearable yet refined and delicate collection. I tend to shy away from loud colors, but the raspberries, salmons, and royal purples captured me as the final dresses flowed in a whimsical and dreamy manner. Valli seems to love women and truly understands the proportions of the body with an array of cinched waists and A-line skirts. I'm a sucker for transparent fabrics as long as it is manipulated in a sophisticated and feminine way, and Valli does just that. His designs are sexy, fearless, and above all, have taste and class. Every woman's dream!
