Giambattista Valli by Fashion Director Bryony Toogood
With the gardens of Paris as inspiration Valli's couture collection was a mixture of not just flora but the architecture of the gardens themselves with strict tiers of tightly packed ruffles and strictly cut hi-lo hems an ode to the formality of horticultural design.
Flowers appeared in many forms, embroidered, embellished and in an abundance of tight ruffles like a bunch of tulle carnations at the neck - swagged, exaggerated leg o mutton sleeves, soft off-the-shoulder bodices and re-embroidered lace added romance to modern silhouettes such as the trapeze and multi-tiered ball gown.
The finale of his now infamous floor skimming ruffled tulle gowns were given a ballet-like aesthetic in dove grey, white and baby pink with the addition of a floral beaded sweater, grosgrain bows and the simplest black hairband for each girl.
