Collection full of question marks

Be a gentle and ethereal creature, or a fearless vamp woman? Dress a courageous mini, or perhaps maxi dresses full of lace with asymmetrical skirt? Flowers or wild animal patterns? All these questions are likely to come to your mind when you see the Giambattista Valli SS19 collection.

Romance, elegance, exotics

Although the collection spring/summer 2019 are dominated by bohemian maxi dress full of romantic floral patterns, lovers of elegant costumes and especially wild animal designs can also find their incentive. Sharp lines, snow white, chic black or models with tiger prints have all become key for the luxurious SS19 collection.

Enough of lace and shirring

Dresses rich in shirring, bulky skirts, lace and gentle colour tones are a bit of a standard at Giambattista Valli's collections, and probably this is why the brand was trying to incorporate non-traditional exotic elements into the collection this time. 

Marked by velvet and courage                  

As a result, the pieces are dominated by a tiger pattern and luxurious velvet. Tricky mini with front fastening, short vest layered on elegant shirt or pants combined with equally extravagant coat – unlike the classic line, for all these models you will need a certain amount of courage.

Fringe trend confirmed!

Besides these pieces, the brand also introduced low platform strip shoes with metal applications and fringes. The fact that fringes will be trendy in the following season was endorsed by many designers during the world's fashion weeks, and Giambattista Valli is doing it too.

Giambattista Valli's true face

The Giambattista Valli brand revealed its two faces – a gentle beauty vs. wild playfulness. Do you identify with one of them? We are inclined to the former – gentle beauty, dominated by volume and ornaments. After all, it's what makes the luxury Italian brand what it is.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is really worth it!

Giambattista Valli, Italian designer, really took the opportunity to present his new SS19 collection as best as he could. Looking at his models, I thought, "This is the way I would define a sophisticated woman of the 21st century." Boom!  

For me, one of the most beautiful dress of the collection is raspberry red dress with a delicately revealed neckline, a tight waist and a maxi frilled skirt. Even the miniscule red leather bag in the waist fits the dress perfectly. I love it! In addition, it is a dress fit for everyday wear, so you can enjoy it more. Lazy lunch in the garden of Kampa Park? Surely the right choice. I wouldn’t recommend long walks in the city because, given the length of the skirt, a lot of people could step on it and only a shred of beautiful fabrics would remain. Not to mention who would make amends for a loss of around 80 thousand crowns.

Unfortunately, a FAILURE could have also been seen in this collection. Animal patterns. Yes, I confess I never loved them, but a tiger motif? It's really out. The biggest error, however, is a trouser suit with a long tiger coat down to ankles... I suspect that the purpose of this collection was not to impress Puff Daddy and Snoop Dog... OR WAS IT?

The biggest HIT and FAILURE of this collection according to Ornella can be found at the beginning of the gallery under the article.
