A HIGH END SUMMER WITH GIAMBATTISTA VALLI


"is an Italian fashion designer from Rome, Italy."

"Style: For the March 2007 Paris fashion show Valli introduced loose and ample coats which were finely tailored with draped panels that undulated away from the body. His suits were shown with Pilgrim hats. Valli fashioned his suits to be lean and long to the knees, widening at the ankles" - read full biography here

SPRING 2011 COLLECTION:
Came across Giambattista Valli and feel in love, his Spring collection was just so inspiring and just by looking transported me into something I would normally not even consider. Wondering what it is? Well it's a sunny day in France, when the flowers and green is out. Now, I've never been to France but there's just a stereotypical feeling that is associated with France and that's what I feel. 
The coral orange, blue and yellows have been very popular in the Spring/Summer collections so far and Valli's mixture of the nude and the coral orange/yellow just gives these pieces a feel of a sunny day while still preserving the beauty you find in neutral colors.
What I love is that in this collection there was the use of more than just one or two types of colors. The mixture of neutral colors and bright and positive shades when worn allows for confidence [just makes you feel good if ever worn]. These images from style.com do justice for this collection.

Also the shoes that were used in this collection were just phenomenal. I feel so in love with them, to mention one of them, the flats just got to me and they definitely added to the collection, this brought out the collection. This detailing is amazing and shows the genius that is Valli.
Only a man who understand beauty can bring out a quote like this:
"art seduces me more when I do not understand it." - Giambattista Valli

Thanks for stopping by my site!!! I agree I hope the radiation isn't too bad among the people of Japan. So far I have heard 160 people may have been in contact of it, which is extremely sad. But like you said I hope this can be a lesson learned everywhere. I'm a new follower!!
