Giambattista Valli - Show Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interview)

Giambattista Valli + itv designerDesigner: Giambattista Valli Place: A lavender field under the canopy of the Pavillion Gabriel Collection: Bows, feathers and sequins embellish and decorate the silhouettes. Black dominates but some very flashy colours draw in the eye. New audacious volumes with parachute cape. You can see thousands of lace or tulle sheets, that the designer is very fond of, ball gowns but also trousers suits and "blingy" tuxedos. The lightness of the materials is accentuated with feathers that border the bottom of sleeves or hems of dresses and you can find them embroidered onto stilettos. Focus on: a jumpsuit finished with a bow on the chest and a mini dress tied at the side, on a faux fur coat, as well as a bustier dress with a long powder pink satin train. To Note: the head covered with a thin veil and jewellery from the Chopard house, who accessorised the outfits with elegance. With interview of Giambattista Valli. These knots are spontaneous knots, as if the girl had knotted them directly on her, there was this idea of "ghetto girls", this idea of a clash of cultures, this idea of a nomadic vision. This girl travels, she knows many cultures and she mixes them together. And at the start, this inspiration through all the textures, the colors, they were also features of the artist Picabia and all of his obsessions with girls around Picabia, all the women he drew around him.I'm very inspired by my clients, I know all of them, most of them are my friends from his life and they inspire me, because I look at them, I love the reality of women, I love it, they inspire me,I want to dress these women, I don’t want to dress a fantasy.I loved breaking some of the haute couture codes as something you can’t wear. In haute couture today there are very few people, I don’t think it exists, that customers buy haute couture for day outfits. Haute couture is for "happy moments", "party times", "weddings",happiness.Music from the show (only for use in context of this report, under cover of the right to information)
