“A feeling, a stolen moment. It’s an extension of this couture moment with a Parisian feeling and spirit. There is black and white, there are men’s textures and there is a love story” – Giambattista Valli, Paris July 2016
The stylist himself describes his last Haute Couture Fall Winter 2016/17 Collection as a Love Story, like the iconic one in the picture below – amazingly captured by the french photographer Robert Doisneau.
This collection is “an introspection of the stylist own world and the love he has for women and also of his very own personal identity”
And what happens on the catwalk is just magic.
Black and white pleats, long tulle trains, exaggerated ruffled shoulders, pouf sleeves, floral prints and empire waistlines. Transparency and ruffles for long dresses.
Look at the below 2 minutes video to have a deeper flavor of the show.
Ultimately three breathtaking long dresses appear, as the last proof that fables sometimes happen within the real world.
The one below is the fable’s white version.
