Oh my people, time to add some dreamy couture life to this week! The couture collections for fall/winter 2017/2018 were shown in Paris last week, so you and I definitely have some chatting to do! First out from the couture shows is Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture Collection. And folks? It’s a dreamy one! Catch the full collection here!
Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture
So Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture Collection was as much Giambattista Valli as one might expect. And I don’t mind it, not at all. Quite the contrary honestly, I can’t get enough of all the tulle, floral prints and voluminous silhouettes. The collection embraced the fall/winter season ahead with a classic color scale of black, white, some pastels and a few looks of burgundy and yellow. The floral print was done in several versions, either rich in details or thoughtfully placed on the clothing pieces. Couture collections often focuses on dresses and skirts, this collection was no exception from that. Draping, tulle and gowns pretty much sums up Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture.
If one were to describe the collection, I’d say that it felt like a floral garden in a city (cause that makes sense). There was a delicate balance of vegetative, and true to nature, floral prints but with a glam touch (hence the city vibes) as sheer fabrics, tulle and elegant drapings. To make it even more relatable: it looks like Blair Waldorf’s entire wardrobe. Perhaps a look or two belonging to Serena Van der Woodsen, lol.
Thoughts On The Collection
As Giambattista Valli is one of my favorite designers, I’m probably more keen on his creations than the average person. With that said, I think he has a high low level which still gives quite the likable looks even if they aren’t fashion magic. The “questionable” looks in this collection are quite few, but still some looks that feels rather undone and without the glam and exclusive touch the style of couture normally gives. This look feels a bit curtain, this one too and this look has never been done before, right? (obs: read sarcasm).
Highlights From The Collection
Other than that, I like this collection. We’ve seen the style and combinations before, but I never say no to more tulle, floral print, voluminous silhouette and some structured creations. The touch of Chanel is quite the chic one as in this look and this look. The bright yellow dress is one for the red carpet, and this sheer floral dream and this pink sweetheart are all spotlight material. Not to forget, this dramatic and over the top black dress that’s probably all we need. As for the sweeter, city garden vibe, this look of floral and green is a sweet one. Also perfect blush shade in this dress, a look that is rather wearable too if you ask me.
Couture shouldn’t be wearable, it’s art and no one buys food at Whole Foods in art – right? But I do enjoy the first looks of the collection as they look business chic with a glam touch. The structured style of this look is quite the posh one. I could definitely work the cocktail party season in this dress and go fall mood in this all black lace look. Hello gorgeous!

This was a great collection. Like you said, it wasn’t really surprising, but that’s not a bad thing. There were plenty of gorgeous pieces, and the red “curtain” look was actually my favorite! Girl, I’d wear that dress every day in December if I had the chance lol.
To be fair, I’d wear couture all the time if I has the opportunity. Wear the art!
Hahaha oh I love that though! It wasn’t a bad curtain look at least, just a curtain look you know! Xx
