Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture


Italian designer Giambattista Valli delivered what I would like to call, ‘Tupac Chic‘ for his fall 2014 namesake couture collection. Although Valli described his collection as, “a late-sixties, early-seventies kind of freedom and eccentricity,” the Eazy-E dark shades and scarf wrap resemble that of the late-great rapper. The idea was, the Valli girl stumbled out of bed into her partner’s pajamas, poolside for some R&R, she was enchanting nonetheless. And even though flower dresses and gowns were influenced by paintings of the Belle Époque Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla it still seemed very ‘Tupac Chic’ to me.
