Giambattista Valli Couture Spring 2015

The runway is a designer's canvas. It's a place for opportunity. A place where the designer conveys ideas and establishes dialog. Giambattista Valli brought together two seemingly opposite iconic figures as the inspiration for the Spring 2015 Couture collection. In what the designer referred to as an "impossible conversation" with Coco Chanel and Janis Joplin revealed as not so impossible after all. Valli married stylish sensibilities like the masculinity of the Chanel jacket, Joplin's hippie-ish pants under dresses look and the free-spirited nature of both women to create a truly magnificent collection. With the signature floral motif featured throughout, Giambattista Valli presented a collection that embraced the couture aesthetic of show-stopping elegance. The final looks were so rich, so gorgeous that you just can't take your eyes off them.
