In between the sea of designers experimenting with something new, re-interpreting this and that, and trying to establish their customer, Giambattista Valli always delivers exactly what we want. And I say this because he knows his customer so well, and he knows what they want. He is one of few designers designing for a woman who need his ball gowns and “off duty” looks. And his Spring 2018 collection was hit after hit of mod mini dresses, mini skirts, and a high/low hemline and flats. I just love the juxtaposition of something fancy and something basic – this is versatility at its finest. Especially when the something fancy is super short and special. The ballerina flats each model wore either in shiny black (satin, I think) and metallic silver are what will inspire women to wear GV during the day and get away with it.
