DE­SIGNER’S BACK­GROUND

With well-es­tab­lished ready-towear and cou­ture col­lec­tions, as well as a re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with 7 for All Mankind, Gi­ambat­tista Valli shouldn’t be un­fa­mil­iar to stylis­tas. The Ital­ian-born, Cen­tral Saint Martins-ed­u­cated cre­ative di­rec­tor in­tro­duced Gi­amba, a younger col­lec­tion, to his range last year.

DE­SIGN SIG­NA­TURES

Judg­ing by its first two col­lec­tions, Gi­amba is much more ca­sual at its core, but Valli’s sig­na­ture take on fem­i­nin­ity cer­tainly still ap­plies here. Ex­pect the same pre­ci­sion cuts, cou­ture­like de­tails and mod­ern sil­hou­ettes.

CUR­RENT COL­LEC­TION

Rem­i­nis­cent of Lon­don’s Swing­ing Six­ties, the col­lec­tion fea­tures a lot of key trends from the era—or­nate daisy prints on doll-like rompers, plenty of dec­o­ra­tive art nouveau flo­rals, and mo­tifs that lined the front of shift dresses, with macramé lace tights and sky-high plat­forms in tow.
