Valli looks good from what I can see



twitter.com/CathyHorynNYT and twitter.com/JeanneBekker

Although that white dress with the black bustier reminds me so much of Dolce & Gabbana F/W 08

From those few pics, and the one of the coat on the other page, this looks like it's very, very pretty.

You can see live collection photos on nowfashion.com
Really nice white/black/pink collection with lots of feathers and fur. Red look cool there. Sparkles nice too.
I think it's one of the best today collections.

Oh and leopard dresses looks great.

The collection is up on Nowfashion. It's pretty and wearable, though it reminds me a bit of vintage Valentino.

When I first heard that Giambatista was gonna do a couture collection, it sounded to me like it would just be a stepping stone. A one-season venture, to show that he can do couture. And that the eventual plan was to have him go over to Dior.

Is it even possible for him to go to Dior? Or is that out of the question?

Ooh exciting. I've always thought he should do HC.

So far so good. The first look is exquisite.

I love the first half of the collection. Just like the coat posted in the first post, it was all very pretty, delicate and lux. But he lost me with the gowns. Aside from maybe a couple of decent ones, they're mostly bland and uninspiring. With that said, I do think it's a good debut HC collection. Can't wait to see more from him.

The first 3 animal printed gowns are too much. They kust look to heavy but the forth in the draped chiffon is actually quite beautiful and a lot softer

The daywear that started was incredible, the beadwork magnificent, but then it sloped into the leopard prints and the standard Valli fluff dresses which I've always thought somewhat repugnant.
There was even one Balenciaga-like jacket that was made from that repulsive fabric Maier used for winter that looks like it has become bobbly due to wear.
Even the great pieces were the same exact cut as the coats Valli does for RTW. Valli has always had the couture-edge, he just needed to sidle over the line into the exclusive family, and by the sounds of it, it wasn't hard for him.
Beautiful seperates, but nothing new from Giamba.

Wow, I am definitely stunned by the collection. It's extremely beautiful, feminine, light (with the exclusion of those horrible dresses with huge piles of fabric on the waist) and very wearable. I am sure the couture customers will be dying for many of these pieces.
I also agree that some of the gowns were a bit too much and a bit too tacky, but as a debut collection it's great. I have a feeling this is going to be one of my favorites this season!
