Marie Claire (South Africa) - - COUTURE REPORT -

‘I al­ways build my col­lec­tion around a woman – and this time it’s two women, Coco Chanel and Ja­nis Jo­plin,’ said Gi­ambat­tista Valli of his cou­ture col­lec­tion. This dou­ble dose of in­spi­ra­tion was a bal­ance be­tween the el­e­gance of Coco and the edgier en­ergy of Ja­nis. From the ow­ered car­pet in­spired by Ital­ian gar­dens to the sports-luxe trousers worn un­der ruf­fled dresses, the show was as free-spir­ited as the women who in uenced it.
