Giambattista Valli an Italian Parisian

A world-renowned Italian designer based in Paris recently joined the "accesible collection's club" and collaborated with Impulse for Macy's where he featured bold prints and bright colors mainly for party dresses. I absolutely could not resist and got myself a lovely sample of this collection.
Giambattista Valli has recently presented his pre-fall collection 2012 where colors black, red, burgundy and animal prints were the main characters in this collection. Very conservative and classy cuts predominated the runway and if you thought Fur was very much last year, think again...it is here to stay for another season, GBV is using this fury trend with big tri-colour coats.
And last but not least, this wonderful designer also has a beautiful elegant wedding collection that should be on the radar for all soon to be brides.
Giambattista Valli's words:

"... I just love to live and work right now. To live too much in the future is the same as living too much in the past..." Vogue USA

"Je travaille dans l'enthousiame, la passion et la joie, trois messages que je veux apporter jusqu'au dernier centimetre du tissu..." Vogue France ("I work with enthusiasm, passion and joy, three messages that I want to bring to the last centimeter of fabric....")

"L'arte mi attira sopratutto quando non la capisco..." Marie Claire Italy ("Art seduces me when I do not understand it...")
