My Fall 2010 RTW favourites: Giambattista Valli

I loved Giambattista Valli AW ’10! The clothes were sophisticated and marvellous. The models were perfect, with fuss-free up-dos, perfect figures (well, obviously) and great, heavy black eye make-up paired with flawless skin. Everything was perfect, really.

It was the outerwear that did it for me. The opening look was, like many other opening looks this season, a camel coat. Instantly, I was hooked in. And then- just when I thought it couldn’t get any better- Frida Gustavsson emerged wearing the 6th look; a camel coat with a similarly cocoon-esque shape, but this time with a funnel neck and short sleeves, leaving the arms bare. It looked lovely the way it was shown, with Frida placing her hands in the deep pockets, revealing a bit of bare arm. Not the most practical of coats for the winter, perhaps, but one could still wear long gloves or, indeed, just long sleeves to solve this slight sartorial issue. There were also some lovely white coats in appealing fabrics, because who doesn’t like a bit of winter white?

Sheer black tights were worn throughout, reiterating Valli’s AW 2010 ideals: simple, clean, chic, sophisticated and feminine. Oh yes, this collection was feminine. Quite a few sheer pieces were paraded down the runway. I feel I must refer to another of my favourite looks here: a sheer white spotted top with a black bra underneath. Teamed with a solid black beaded/ruffled skirt, black tights, kitten heels and a pink belt, it looked grown-up and chic with a very subtle hint of naughtiness. The idea wasn’t sexiness. It was femininity. There was a bit of knicker-flashing going on as well, again put together perfectly in the form of excuisitely detailed dresses with white tops and black skirts with sheer panels around the knicker area. Again, tasteful, plain black underwear was worn underneath. Going more down the sexy route was a very sheer black floor-length dress (worn with a navy blue blazer sitting on the shoulders) that made the black bra worn underneath very visible. Still, though, it wasn’t wholly distasteful.

  4. Thanks. I adored the show. The camel coats are to die for. It must be lovely to have lots and lots of money to spend on lust-worthy designer coats…

  5. Thank you! Oh, I’m pleased you like the layout! Nice to know the blog is aesthetically pleasing. 🙂
