Giambattista Valli Pre-Fall 2018
The Italian born designer Giambattista Valli opened his namesake brand in Paris in 2005. After learning the secrets of the trade from the renowned dressmaker Roberto Capucci, Rome’s famous Fendi sisters and the French maestro Emanuel Ungaro, Valli launched a solo career and opened his eponymous maison, quickly garnering attention with the distinctive silhouettes and ethereal femininity of his designs. Giambattista Valli’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection counterpoints the designer’s signature floor skimming floral dresses, boho chic and modern elegance with embroidered activewear and jogging suits adorned with lace. The harmonious collection balances between structured tweed and bouclé jackets to ultra feminine athletic pieces in a contrasting color palette of deep hued pink, red, blue and green.
