Cute looks have a new name. This time it is Giambattista Valli spring/summer 2014 collection presented at Paris Fashion Week on Monday. This line looks like a challenge to make various sharp shapes look as feminine and cute as possible. This challenge is quite successfully accepted and completed with an array of to-die-for designs. These diversely gracious silhouettes carry so many touches of charm, chic, cute and girly looks that all the questions are answered without being uttered.
Cropped and folded garments. This is what the Giambattista Valli spring/summer 2014 collection starts with. The typical symmetrical folds made on the front part of the first skirt demonstrated are later developed and used on many other interpretations of mini and floor length garments. They serve like a specific marker of the main idea of this line.
The widely popular kimono cut is also here, presented via tops cut at the shoulders. The various interpretations of transparency play is found among the apparels as well. Particularly, we see these motives on many floor length pieces, which show some skin and carry certain geometric-like prints. The oversized shoulders are used among the garments, too, and these motives have become quite popular among many other spring 2014 collections we’ve seen.
The cutest elements of the Giambattista Valli spring/summer 2014 collection were probably the delicate and scrupulously made floral designs, presented via appliqués, prints, and awesome beadwork elements. Seems like this collection simply couldn’t do without these patterns.
The shapes were mainly created around the skirt interpretations, the accent of diversity being put on the lengths. Thus, we see various skirts from mini to floor length and from straight and asymmetrical ones to full and gather variants.
Coming to the color palette of the Giambattista Valli spring/summer 2014 collection, we notice the dominance of calmer tones like cream, white and grey among the outfits, sometimes intervened with black representations and sunny yellow motives taken by very small proportions. The transparent elegance is flying over the runway of Paris. Don’t miss the chance to follow it!
