Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2018

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 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 gobstopper of a 38-carat rock. Wrapped around her sandals were two thick glittering chains. Welcome to the fly girl, Valli style.
“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,” the designer explained backstage.
“They have that kind of sense to wear haute couture like they are wearing jeans and a T-shirt. They don’t have any complex. There is a little bit of ghetto girls — luxury ghetto girls, whatever you want to call it

Giambattista Valli Resort 2019

“I really believe now, more than ever, in the mix of cultures and being open to other cultures,” said Giambattista Valli who likes the idea of a muse who “You can’t place geographically; they can come from all over the world.”
Taking this nomadic state of mind, with signature florals and the brand’s clear sense of femininity the linking thread, highlights ranged from a day-to-night black sequin pantsuit with pink floral embroidery to a flower-embroidered boucle coat with fringed trims.
The delicate workmanship continued on a charming dress in a mix of Chantilly lace and macrame embroidered with lamé thread. Perfect for a summer tea party was an ivory dress embroidered with Indian “tree of life” symbols mixed with Chantilly lace and prints based on Japanese chrysanthemums.
The designer’s fledgling sports line had also blossomed, with among new pieces beach caftans and a tracksuit in an overlay of point d’esprit lace. More elaborate styles included a track top in a patchwork of Japanese chrysanthemums printed on nylon mixed with graphic bands of Chantilly lace.
Valli said the collection was aimed at women of all generations, from young ladies to Lee Radziwill.
“It’s important in this Millennials-hysterical moment to look at what youth is today; youth

Giambattista Valli Adds His Continental Cool to Sloane Street

VA-VA-VALLI: Designer Giambattista Valli landed with a bang in London this week, officially opening his first London store on Sloane Street and hosting a caviar-heavy dinner with British Vogue editor Edward Enninful.
The store, at 29 Sloane Street, is the latest in a series of openings — after Seoul and Beijing — following investment from Artemis, the investment arm of the Pinault family, the French billionaires behind the Kering group.
Later this summer, Valli will be opening in the Qatari capital of Doha, taking the store count to nine. The designer also has a store at Harrods, which will remain open despite its proximity to Sloane Street.
Part luxury home, part retail space, the Sloane Street boutique is awash with the designer’s signature floaty dresses in shades of mint and baby pink. The store carries rtw and accessories, but not haute couture.
“Come over and have a look,” said Valli during a walkthrough. “You can sit on an alligator bench while you buy an alligator bag. I love the idea of one-of-a-kind.”
Valli was referring to a small white bench part covered in alligator skin, one of the many hand-picked pieces of furniture and mid-century antiques in the new store, which spans two floors and

EXCLUSIVE: Giambattista Valli Moves Into Activewear, Sets Retail Expansion

PARIS — Giambattista Valli is launching an activewear capsule collection and gearing up for a retail push, marking the first steps of his label’s planned expansion under its new partnership with the billionaire Pinault family.
Known for his flirty cocktail dresses and sculptural evening gowns, the designer has steered his brand in a more casual direction in recent seasons, showing taffeta jackets with Nike running tights for fall and introducing logo-printed denim for spring 2018.

Now Valli is joining the ranks of luxury brands vying for a portion of the thriving athleisure market. According to Euromonitor, sports-inspired footwear and apparel is growing at a rapid pace, registering 10 percent and 6 percent increases in 2016, respectively.
Following the end of his decade-long partnership with Italian luxury outerwear firm Moncler as creative director of its Gamme Rouge line, he will unveil his namesake activewear collection of 50 to 60 pieces — including coats, puffer jackets, sweatshirts and track suits — to buyers in January.
“It’s a capsule collection where we will express a more functional side of the brand, while remaining faithful to the atmosphere of contemporary chic that is part of its DNA,” Valli told WWD in an exclusive

Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2017

Fresh from the news that he has a new investor — French billionaire François Pinault, no less — Giambattista Valli decided to say it with flowers, with a fall couture show that was an ode to spring gardens.
Pinault sat in a curved outdoor gallery at the Petit Palais, swept by the last rays of a blinding summer sun, alongside guests including pop diva Céline Dion and Valli’s faithful young socialite set — Olivia Palermo, Lauren Santo Domingo, Bianca Brandolini, et al.
Models picked their way across the mosaic floor on needle-thin black satin platform stilettos that accentuated the thinness of their legs, poking out of minidresses embellished with lace, sequins, embroideries and macramé in dense floral textures.
These alternated with draped chiffon dresses in  pastel shades, including one that Valli described as “cuisse de nymphe émue” — an old variety of rose known in English as Great Maiden’s Blush. Valli’s sylphs may look inoffensive, but their blood-red lipstick and killer heels suggested otherwise.
“Nymphs and muses,” the designer said after the show. “The idea is to have this kind of freshness of these innocent girls, but with a slightly perverse touch.”
He added structure with panels of jet bead embroidery and bold graphic accents
