Le belle Valli
images via style.com Apologies for another 'trend report' but I have officially been blown away. Well, not literally, but in the figurative sense. Giambattista Valli AW12 couture collection is absolutely, unequivocally divine. The last time a collection got me like this was the McQueen ss12 collection- all that gilding and armour inspired head- wear had me feeling positively noble. Valli has officially been named a 'couturier' by the Paris'Fédération Française de la Couture, an accolade that not many modern day fashion designers/houses get bestowed upon them. Snaps for Valli *Promise I wil NEVER say that again* The gowns are dramatic and bountiful, classy statements and undeniably fantastical! The high, tudor neck- lines and more reserved dresses only add to the drama of the gowns and intricate detailing in the way of tiny flowers and textured feather skirts makes it one of the most wearable couture lines this side of the English channel. The thought of wearing any one of these gowns is enough to send any woman into a world of fantasy, I envisage, masquerade balls, banquets and a theatrical entrance from Sophia Loren.
