Hmm.. Honestly, I don't see any trademark that would scream "It's a Valli couture dress!" It has too many references: most of the ballgowns remind me of Valentino, the cocktail dresses look Chanelesque, the leopart print dresses remind me of either Dolce and Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli and even the third to the last dress reminds of Lhuillier's finale dress in her FW11 collection.

Overall, I expected more from Valli despite the fact that it's his first HC show. Just like Azzedine Alaia's HC presentation, it looks like more of an RTW than couture.

Vlada l Sasha l Natasha l Natalia l Daria l Full of ahhs!

this stands as a satisfactory debut for a new couturier. nothing more. nothing less. i wouldn't expect for the world to stop turning because of any of these dresses, but it's definitely designing on a much higher level than his ready-to-wear line. i'm just curious if this opportunity will allow him to grow his house into something bigger or just let him fall into the sidelines with the andrew gns and ralph ruccis.

everything is never quite enough.
