Givenchy, Valentino, and Giambattista Valli: Haute Couture 2018

By Pearl Fontaine

July 13, 2018

If you haven’t yet seen these to-die-for haute couture collections, Whitewall has put together a group for your enjoyment below.

A tribute to Hubert de Givenchy himself, Givenchy’s latest haute couture collection embodied the timelessness of the house and the elegance of the man who started it all. Gliding down a mirrored runway, we saw men’s tailoring techniques brought to capes and coats, accompanying delicate silhouettes with cinched waists and flowing skirts. The collection featured garments like hooded gowns, geometric capes, and metallic headpieces, fashioned after the sleek and futuristic designs the brand was known for in the 1960s.

Presented in front of a simplistic white backdrop with a row of planted lavender blooms, Giambattista Valli’s 15th haute couture collection left its mark. A compilation of all things feminine—from feathers to jewels and bows to ruffles—could be seen in a palette of colors like black, white, pink, and mint. A highlight of the collection, which featured a variety of silhouettes, was the red jumpsuit with billowing sleeves and a full skirt trailing behind.

Crystal chandeliers, grand staircases, and romantic ceiling murals fittingly accompanied the dream that was Valentino’s new haute couture collection which was all about volume (especially up top). A palette filled with colors spanning the whole rainbow was painted across ruched satin skirts, floral headpieces, and embroidered dresses alike. While it’s hard to pick just one favorite, we’d have to say that the pink, feathery cloud of a gown worn by Kaia Gerber (and the height of her hair!) was surely a highlight.
