Giambattista Valli is a man who knows a thing or two about excess: after all, some of his gowns require 400 yards of fabric, so it came as a surprise that the opening look of his Fall 2018 Couture collection consisted of nothing more than a black bow-tie bandeau top and high-waisted pants.
A closer look revealed that this may be his most extravagant look yet: the model’s fingers dripped with hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of Chopard rings set with diamonds, including a 38-carat rock.
“There is a very strong sense of youth in this haute couture. Why? Because we have a lot of new generations of young girls coming and buying haute couture from all over the world, so that’s very nice and it’s very inspiring, and they have a different attitude to wearing it,” explained Giambattista Valli during the backstage.
To cater to this new wave of clients, Giambattista Valli introduced some pant options: a zip-front black duchess satin jumpsuit (the bling factor now courtesy of three jaw-dropping diamond necklaces) or a trouser suit and trenchcoat embroidered with a crystal check.
Giambattista Valli even gave his girly cocktail dresses a comfortable spin, chopping the midriff off a bouclé tweed mini and framing it with crystals and feathers.
For sure, his tiered bubblegum-pink tulle gown will gather the most clicks, but it’s that cool girl in the black pants that has the world at her fingertips.
