Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2011

I was so excited to hear that Giambattista Valli was going to be showing haute couture this season, he is the perfect designer to make the transition from ready to wear into haute couture. In fact, a lot of his ready to wear is very couture-like. This collection was very predictable, but in a good way. Valli’s signature rounded silhouettes, fantastic use of texture through heavily embellished fabrics, and a soft yet modern colour palette made up a beautiful debut couture collection.

I love…

the lovely round silhouettes that Valli is so good at.

a gorgeous tone of coral, the perfect contrasting belt, and the textured embellishment on the skirt.
