We don't have any illusions about the effectiveness of these tulle masks. At the same time we ask ourselves the question, was it really necessary? Giambattista Valli probably wanted to have a memory of the Coronavirus era in his collection, but less is sometimes more and this time, we'd be quite content with just the iconic robes full of tulle. That, after all, is why we love this italian designer!
Don't worry, your eyes aren't fooling you. Unusual as it may be, there really is only one single beauty in the new Giambattista Valli collection - the Puerto Rican supermodel Joan Smalls. She wore all 18 models of the new Fall 2020 Haute Couture collection, among which you'll find seductive mini dresses as well as a luxurious maxi dress with a train that reaches all the way to the Italian border. The fuchsia robe is pretty damn juicy, and we guarantee that if you put it on, no woman in the room will be more spectacular than you.
Giambattista Valli is well aware that aside from poofy robes, in the creation of which he can let his imagination run wild, it is necessary to design models that you won't slam the door of your car on so easily. That's why he came up with stylish mini dresses that may be a little shorter, but definitely don't lack on volume, especially in the chest area and on the hips - he really doesn't skimp on fabric!
We wouldn't mind destroying all existing traditions by wearing this luxurious robe with feathers in a shade of passionate crimson to the altar... or for a quick grocery run! We don't really care. We are reconciled to the fact that others might think we're crazy, we simply want to wear this perfection 24/7!
...they said. Sure! But then they showed me a Giambattista Valli collection, and what am I supposed to write now? Too well made? Too nice shade? Fine, I found something! I don't like the model, in my opinion a blonde would be much more suitable. Ideally one from Prague!
A puffed puffball! But I like it. When you want to be extravagant, don't halfass it! Plus, it's practical! Especially now, in the coronavirus age, because with this dress, the safe distance of two meters is guaranteed.
There are different types of bows. Of course, I know of occasions on which it's really not appropriate to dress like Mickey Minnie (which, unfortunately, we see way too often, and not in girls under 10). However, having seen the first model of the collection, I am well aware that this collection will be all but minimalist, I'm attuned to it and find this big bow simply adorable.
Well hello there! Here I am defending extravagance tooth and nail, and our boy comes up with this totally simple dress with a highlighted waist. One can see that he did his best to keep his fantasy from going wild, but he loosened the reins when it came to the hat. Alright, I'm ditching the hat right away, but I'll definitely take the dress, thank you very much!
Okay, I'm totally aware of the fact that I'm being unreasonably benevolent here. But somehow I can't help myself, the long-term wearing of food-stained leggings during quarantine must have made me a philanthropist. And by the way, it reminds me quite a bit of Vanda Janda's style, so there's possibly a more affordable substitute!
Fine, if you insist, I'll take a little jab at Giambattista Valli. Remember how we talked about bows? So this is the case where the bow is totally out of place. Unless it's your aim to look like an aging princess, of course.
