Giambattista Valli Debuts Grayscale Botanical Collection

By Caroline Wall

March 7, 2016

Last weekend, Italian designer Giambattista Valli debuted his botanical fall/winter 2016 collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. Embroidered vines and petals twisted their way around dresses, skirts, and jackets, while pops of wool and fur grounded daintier fabrics. Models strode down the runway in gladiator sandals, adding a bite of moxie to this delicate, feminine collection.

The show featured predominantly grayscale looks, draping models in sheer chiffon florals and cinching waists with belts and ribbons. Valli varied his dresses with overlay tops or wrapped busts, adding dark bands or beaded details to texture the looks. Standout looks included a blue-tinged embroidered dress and matching jacket banded with mink; a ruffled flow-banded skirt with a floral jacket, collared with black fur; a wisteria-embellished gown and robe, flashing skin beneath floral details; and an unexpected pop of color from a floor-length peach gown, with two ruffled petals enclosing the bust.
