The Giambattista Valli wardrobe for Resort 2022 is one for an urban open air stroll. The Valli silhouette acquires a streamlined flair; bouclé ensembles are trimmed with clean silk crepe borders or with organza inlays that make the garments seem architecturally cut. Sharp crepe dresses and woven checkered patterns are in sync with our lives’ fast pace.
Now, the Valli attire is one for every need of a contemporary woman in balance with her inner strength and femininity. It is one that she dedicates to herself.
The Maison’s iconic idylls are present in the botanical prints, which include designs named “Bouquet Sauvage”, Rosiers” and “Ramages de Bambou” and in the intricate work of volants and macramé or Chantilly lace incrustations that blend perfectly with the smartness of the lines. Frills are seen as part and parcel of the silhouette, the shape that they play in the surrounding space, not as mere decorations.
The colour palette is modernist, not the superstructure of the garment. Indeed colors are pure and clear to the eye; clean ivory, full reds and fuchsias, limpid aqua, primary green and lucid pale pink.
The everlasting love of the Valli woman for travels and discoveries is portrayed here on the “Valli Totes”. Jet set destinations like Mykonos, Ibiza, Saint Tropez, Positano, Montauk and The Hamptons are embroidered on artisanal canvas in the hues of the collection alongside the Maison’s thin logo. For her trip to summer destinations, she might also pick the newlylaunched “Valli Panier” that comes with handles in faux alligator-embossed leather.
Multicoloured sandals straps, trimmed with platinum nappa, sensually hug the feet in a game of serpentine but graphic movements.
