Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall 2011

When the news broke a few months ago that French designer Giambattista Valli was inducted as a gust member to the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, I was beyond ecstatic! His ready to wear collections are always pure representations of femininity and luxury and I am such a big fan. As guest of the Chambre Syndicale, he produced his first ever Haute Couture collection in Paris recently, he stated “The most beautiful thing about the couture is the devotion” and that philosophy was clearly apparent in the staggering 45 looks that he presented. Composing of endless yards of vibrantly colored chiffon, hand bead work, layers of tulle, and some fantastic animal prints, the collection was a bit on the frothy side but still maintained the timeless Parisian elegance and flair Giambattista is known for. I am so happy for him and I know that after the rave reviews he has received for this first Couture collection, the future will only be more magical. As a guest member of the Chambre Syndicale he must await 5 years before he is eligible to practice the art of Haute Couture officially. Here are some of my favorites from the collection..
