Giambattista Valli expands his range with the introduction of his new line called Giamba.Giambattista Valli expands his range with the introduction of his new line called Giamba. After his main ready to wear collection launched almost 10 years ago and his couture in 2011, the Italian designer addresses the new girls with long hair, tights and short flared dresses. The tunics were light and see-through with openwork guipure lace. Nature was present throughout, with embroidery and prints, inspired by the ceramics that decorate the exterior of the palace situated in the heart of a garden in Milan where Giambattista presented his show. A play between heavier fabrics and also lighter flowing textures created volume. The silhouettes were short, delicate and full of freshness for the summer season. The 3D dresses, prints and embroidery with frills created a truly sophisticated wardrobe. A couture spirit ruled over the collection worn by the young girls in flowers. Interview: Giambattista Valli: This is a very international collection and I love that I’m presenting in Milan because I spent my childhood in Italy, and you can see that in the spirit of the collection. The silhouettes of the pieces are shorter as if you’ve shrunk them in the wash, the silhouette of Giambattista Valli has become “pretty”. We’re not talking about something that’s “beautiful”, we are talking about something that is “pretty”. You’ll see again printed chiffon that I use on the dresses in my Haute Couture but with the nylon parkas and macs it was a very pretty experience with the fabrics and volume. My friends call me “Giamba” so now I hope I’ll have lots of friends all over the world who are going to join me in this new adventure and friendship.
