AMazing collection...I'm impressed...Although there are a bit too many "hefty" bag pieces...Some I can do without..Especially the day dresses..

i still don't get why they let him go at UNgaro... or why he was fired???

if we have to name-drop for influences... I would say Hussein Chalayan Cocoon stuff 2005 and Giles Deacon XXL knitwear 2007... for a few looks ONLY!

Well, I like a lot of this. He's reigning in a bit of his volume, and it's paying off. It's used more sparingly, and makes more of an impact that way. I'm still not entirely sold on some of the pod-shaped looks, but for runway they certainly make an impact.

That robins-egg blue astrakhan ensemble with the fox trim is beyond outrageous...I kind of love it.

The red pouf gowns however are just too retro looking.

Woah, I even like the furs...that is rare! I am in love with the shapes! They feel cocoony, but not really. I think my favorite look is the one on Ksenia K - ninth pic in post 26 - It has the shape and structure that's elaborate in the rest of the collection yet the simplicity of black and a zipper. Love that

all of it.

I only brought 1 piece of Valli last fall 07 season, looks like I will have a longer purchase list in 08.

I adore this with the exception of a few pieces. Those red gowns at the end have such a dated feeling to them, but I do love the color. I'm not a fan of the zippered eggshell number either, it's just too voluminous. I love the silhouettes and the colors.

Oh my.... i think this is the best collection he has ever done.

The silhouettes are breathtaking,use of volume is done very well and it feels modern and endearing, porportions work well and all different use of fabrics looks beautiful.BUT the best thing to me is colour pallette....how stunning.The only thing i am not to crazy about are the cream shoes in the first few looks others are great as usual.

Wow....what a beautiful and red collection!! I like the volumes in the dresses but I can only see this appealing on the likes of Mischa and Mary-Kate.




p/s Also agree about the picture from catwalking. They are certainly way better than Firtsview. Sometimes the pic from Firstview is so bad they really kill the collection.

OH GOD
I told myself I wouldn't look at the new Giambattista collection until the video had been uploaded onto the official website!!! But I couldn't RESIST!
I LOVE Giambattista Valli and his inspirations and his shows and the music and the SHOES. I absolutely love him.
He's so modern, he's so bold, he's so clean and quirky, he's full of life, but can be austere. Such a change from last year's winter with those fantastic hats! Oh god. I love this.
Anyone know if he's single??
CRY!
THANKS FOR POSTING!
