Giambattista Valli Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Unveils Feminine Lace & Florals

Giambattista Valli‘s spring/summer 2017 collection for Paris Fashion Week was very thoughtful in its construction, pausing to bring in trends and concepts from the past seasons, as well as the current one. Regardless of where the trends were coming from, the whole collection was extremely feminine, and most of the pieces were totally wearable – if this had been a see-now-buy-now collection, it’s easy to imagine that these looks would be seen on the streets as quickly as they could be shipped out.

There’s just something so nice about romantic fashion. It always comes in as a light breeze and hangs in the air; even after the show ends, there’s this delicate pause that hangs over the runway. In this case, the romanticism was especially wearable.

Perhaps the show wasn’t as dramatic as most designers tend to be for a fashion week, and for the most part no pieces really jumped out as being new; yet, the collection was lovely. Last spring season, the Valli runway was a lot more vibrant, so the comparison is largely what causes this collection to feel particularly muted.

Also in comparison to last year’s shows, the use of underwear as outerwear was notable here. That was a huge runway trend for the 2016 seasons, but so far for 2017 that trend has taken the backseat. When trends come and go, it’s always rather refreshing to see it pop back up on the runway, even such a short time after its presence and departure.

According to NowFashion, the Italian designer explained that the collection was in response to the idea of “memories of a discreet girl and a difficult time in her life, two introspective moments in the life of my woman. She speaks and I listen.” With that concept in mind, the collection is truly elevated.

Yes, the Valli girl may be discreet, and she may have a muted palette, and she is subject to life’s difficulties, but her beauty ultimately outweighs whatever it is that is bringing her down. Valli is pushing across the idea that beauty can be delicate, and you don’t need to dress vibrantly to exemplify that. So, as a collection, the clothes were good and lovely but quiet; as a presentation with Valli’s backstory, however, it comes alive.

He celebrated the romance of sensuality through the peeks of lingerie, and balanced it out with the sweetness of taffeta and floral patterns. Despite being toned down, it was a nice and refreshing collection on the Paris Fashion Week stage. The Valli woman will be very happy for the coming spring season, because the wearability of the clothes in this line is impeccable.
