Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall 2013
Dainty flowers, tamed but never the less bouncy voluminous skirts, floating Chantilly lace, the sheer lightness and fragility of it all… The Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 couture show was a fantasy every woman would adore. Yes, we live in an era of minimalism, but just like with any rules and era, there must be a visual and emotional escape, an element of magic, the fairy tale to be lost it, to dream, to feel…

Inspired by the Europe’s renowned porcelain workshops, the collection included the Capodimonte whites, Wedgewood blues, Sèvres and Meissen blossoms… From Italy, to Britain and France, Germany – it was a beautiful journey through history and a courteous bow to the pure art of haute couture.

I havent seen the Giambattista Valli collection yet just the one by Dior and I was little disappointed. Btw, glad to see it instead on your blog! Is so awesome and feminine! Love the mix of cultures it express and the choices of wovens and colors, truly dreamy!:) The white gown is my fav look! Kisses dear! xo

  4. Such beauty! The blue and white dress (5th photo) is stunning and I love the black and red sheer dress as well. I haven't seen any of the haute couture collections. There are so many collections/year now. I don't even want to imagine the amount of stress designers have to face. It's just too much.

    PS: I'm only just discovering animal print myself. Apart from the bracelet I have a scarf and a pair of python skin flat sandals from Navy Boot that I love wearing, because they are so chic.

  13. I was completely oblivious to Valli's existence until a few months ago, when I ventured upon his collection at Saks Fifth Avenue and nearly combusted. There was so much beauty, I almost contemplated selling my organ to buy one of the beautiful lace trimmed dresses.

    This post is all sorts of orgasms, holy shit. I'm just surprised that Hollywood actresses aren't creaming themselves over wearing these designs on the red carpet!

  14. The dream of couture shows, the beauty of these gowns...you couldn't choose a better title to describe these amazing collection! In my view Giambattista Valli and Valentino are the few labels able to create collections embodying a true modern romanticism. Caterina
