Giambattista Valli (Italian, b. 1966) embodies contemporary couture. His collections blend fantasy with simple, clean lines in garments that are inherently wearable and intensely romantic. Each piece is meticulously crafted, with decadent fabrics and impeccable tailoring. Voluminous, indulgent and chromatically rich, his gowns, such as the feathery tulle ball-gown skirt with piped pajama top (2114) are both extravagant and modern.
