Giambattista Valli’s Haute Couture Gowns Are All About Extravagance, Celebration And Unadulterated Glamour.
For Giambattista Valli’s tenth anniversary as a couturier, the Italian designer pulled out all the stops with an extravagant balloon-filled set, a star-studded front row and an astounding 58 looks in a kaleidoscope of joyous hues. Here’s everything you need to know about Giambattista Valli’s spectacular AW22 Haute Couture show.
‘I think the most powerful lesson of the last couple of years was really to enjoy the moment, live in the moment,’ said Valli backstage before the show. Marking his return to the Paris runway for the first time since 2019, it was only fitting, then, that this collection be all about celebration – of his career, his contribution to the ‘new age’ of couture, the joys of fashion, the beauty of its craft, and being back firmly in the ‘now’. Inspirations included Studio 54’s iconic party scene in the Seventies, and English gardens filled with beautiful roses – and resulted in some of the most fantastical creations we’ve seen in Valli’s career thus far.
