giambattista valli


I've always said that I wish I had been born in the 1930's so that I could have been in my 20s in the 1950s (I'll admit, this is based entirely on sartorial logic - if there is such a thing). Giambattista Valli's Spring 2013 Couture collection showcases all that I love about mid-century silhouettes. Inspired by flora and fauna, Valli created beauty in sylphlike waistlines, full-bodied skirts and calf-length tailoring paired with ornate lace and alluring tulle layers.
