Paris Couture - Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Review

The best time of the year, The Paris Couture shows!! I would love to be there in person, sitting front row drooling over the amazing pieces walking down the runway or even watching Style.com all day and writing reviews for every show, but alas I can't. I have to work in the real world but I can escape now and review the breath taking looks from the Giambattista Valli show.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2013

The best words to describe the show are floral, delicate, sheer, sophisticated, and feminine. Valli stated that everyone wanted him to give them flowers so he gave them flowers and in that he was also inspired by different types of porcelain, which not only adorned the back of the invitations in the form of a photograph of Valli's own Meissen piece but different types of porcelain are represented as the show transitions into different shapes and colors.

Starting out in pure white these pieces have an easy flow and have a girlish charm until the show moves to sensual reds and yellows that give more sophisticated look. The short tulle skirts, boxy jackets covered in florets, long sheer trumpet skirts,  and grandiose dresses draped in mousseline are the stars of this floral story.

These intricate pieces came together in only a way Valli can make them. Its a true display of art.
