Leave it to Giambattista Valli to put peplum in its place, over and over and over again, and everywhere else while he’s at it. I’m going to come right out and say that I love it, and not just because my dream of a garment that integrates a pillow, a bib and a booster seat is finally realized. The colors, the prints, the cuts, the concepts: the entire aesthetic is artful and over-the-top and still intensely feminine and tailored. The essential, underlying shape of every single garment is ultimately wearable; underneath all those folds of fabric are skirts, dresses, coats and gowns that could flatter many different silhouettes and function at both work and play. That’s no small feat for a couture collection.
Plus, no more worries about what to wear to that Silence of the Lambs theme party I’ve been wanting to have.
Why not share the love?
