At Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2011 presentation you couldn’t move without bumping into a gorgeous socialite.
They came from Italy, France and New York to support the designer known for making amazing dresses for sexy chic young fashionistas.
They wouldn’t have been disappointed as there was plenty for them to choose from.
On a neutral colour palette with pops of orange, mustard and leopard print, Giambattista Valli presented a retro chic collection of minis and breath-taking gowns.
Tunic dresses, shift dresses, high-waisted capri pants, flowing gowns, gowns with tulip-shaped skirts, a T-shirt paired with a skirt made of organza petals, a bandage skirt worn over a shirt-dress and a cropped jacket paired with an oversized pocketed skirt was presented.
I was most impressed with the details.
The embroidery and floral prints really stood out for me. White embroidery was even added to some of the animal prints to add more texture to the look.
Silver metallic pockets was another detail which complemented the silver necklaces, waistbands and cuffs the models wore.
We can all rejoice as flats continue to be the seen on the runway during the Spring 2011 presentations.
The age of crazy heels that even models can’t walk in seem to be over.
