Giamba Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready to Wear at Milan Fashion Week
Giambattista Valli gave us some of the best frocks I've ever seen from him in this collection.This is also, perhaps, the most wearable collection Giamba has ever done (for me, at least). And yes, I'm saying 'wearable' about a pretty white dress with a leather harness on it. This is a first.
I loved the more traditional 'Valli girls' dresses as well,with the incredible floral details as only Giamba knows how to do. The colors are perfection. The mountain-y landscapes are an equally beautiful change in direction.
Suddenly, while reading Tim Blanks' Giamba review on style.com, I see this quoted by Mr. Valli: "I just want to inspire girls. They may not be able to afford the clothes, but they can go and do the look, with layered leggings and face tattoos." -- Guys, face tattoos aside, but Giamba is totally doing this for us! This is what I think we all do with most collections, but I'm excited to see a designer, let alone Valli, go right out and admit this. Awesome stuff. xx
