Giambattista Valli Spring Summer 2014

I feel like turning on my sewing machine, taking most of the dresses from this Giambattista Valli show, and sewing the waist-high center front slits closed. Then we’d have a beautiful collection.

I love…

the strange curls of fabric on this skirt and a lovely cocoon bolero jacket.

dresses that look like they are made from paper-thin fabric. Looks great over swimwear but will be beautiful day dresses, too.

that this could be a stunning dress if it weren’t completely sheer!

I loathe…

all the crotches in this show. Are these meant to be beach coverups? Or are the slits going to be closed for production?

that this is too short, even for a runway piece.
