Giambattista Valli - Collection spring/summer 2015 in Paris

There is a fresh atmosphere and like always elements of couture at Giambattista Valli. Inspired by industrial design of the 60s, the designer likes to work with a certain graphic line that he combines with pure and round shapes, all with his own touch through appliqué; embroidery and leather fringing. Nature is never far away with branches on the shoulders and across the body. The short dresses contrasted with the flared trousers, and were paired with short jackets and long tunics. Interview: Giambattista Valli: There was this idea of industrial design, at the end of the 60s and the start of the 70s, really art of industrial design, and aside from that, I also had an idea about art and craft, and I searched for a mix of those things together. It was this totally refined line, this idea of new tailoring, composed of tunics and trousers, this idea of purity in total, graphic lines, like marks of a pencil under clothes, but after they were softer on the human side, cut outs, embroidery, all this nature a little bit surreal and abstract.
