Giambattista Valli was shown his ready-to-wear collection for Fall/Winter 2015-2016 in Paris Fashion Week, on 9 March 2015.
It is easy to imagine this day, Lee Radziwill – longtime muse and friend to Giambattista Valli, sat front row at his show – in many of the looks the designer showed today. Because of Giambattista Valli’s collections, it is alwayschic and elegant.
The bright and bold mixing of colors, floral patterns and sculptural flourishes were a shock to the senses.
The late ‘60s early/‘70s vibe of the show, with all its minidresses,tops and tunics worn with tailored slightly bell bottomed trousers, would look right at home on a modern-day Laugh-In.
“It is a continuation of the haute couture, where I wanted to have the trousers under the dresses,” said Valli after his show. “This is becoming more and more my signature. Before I was like all about dresses and now, you know, it’s the new thing.” And Giambattista Valli did it, you are sure remember his Haute Couture Collection for Fall/Winter 2015-2016 season which was shown in Paris Haute Couture Week ( if you didn’t see it you only Need to search it for example in archives of my blog or scrolling the categories, and you can see that both collections are very similar, i mean the ensembles such dresses and trousers)
So, back to ready-to-wear , i prefer back to *prêt-à-porter * collection , it’smore French, it’s more chic, it’s matching with collection! Of course the meaning is same, Name it ready-to-wear, name it prêt-à-porter or „bereit zum Tragen“! Giambattista Valli F/W 2015-2016 collections is chic, elegant and funny! It’s 70ies which we love to wear today!
