Classic Couture Glamour at Giambattista Valli

Giambattista Valli, Couture, AW11, Paris.

The debut couture collection by Giambattista Valli for Autumn Winter 2011 was filled with couture’s greatest hits, from graphic black and white colour schemes in sculpted and embellished dresses to sweeping gowns in scarlet chiffon.

An added reference to the work that goes behind the scenes of a couture collection was the use of a white work coat in 3 of the looks – used once folded down as a skirt, and twice as a shirt. The white work coats are classically worn by the seamstresses who work on the collections in the atelier, and are also worn by models between fittings.
