Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Spring 2012

Valli Haute Couture

Staged in the famed Crillon Hotel in Paris, Giambattista Valli, Paris’ newest couturier, showcased his exquisite Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection. Sculpted shoulders, elaborate peplums, floral appliqué, oversized bow necklines, flared skirts, and saturated orchid prints made for a slew of looks that were at once stunning in their intricate execution while being wholly wearable.

Valli is one of the few designers, especially in the context of couture, that can create clothing that real women would kill to wear without sacrificing anything in the way of dramatic appeal, and this season's lightweight collection once again proved it.
