Giambattista Valli is the kind of designer who makes frothy floral dresses, fitfor women who have highly feminine notions when it comes to their wardrobe. His clothing is never dark or disturbing. It doesn’t try to ask sociopolitical sartorial questions. It doesn’t have any hidden messages or designs in the grand scheme of things. They exist for one simple, and profound reason, to make women feel as beautiful and, by extension, as powerful as possible.

This season he accomplished that with a collection that switched things up a bit by almost completely taking away one of Valli’s favorite design tools – color. Instead he challenged himself to maintain that same level of romantic perfection delivered primarily in black and white.

With his floating short white dress, the fabric held down by bands of black, he proved he could. His shimmering chevron salt-and-pepper tweed coat confirmed it. And a series of black silk dresses covered in a white lily-of the valley print put any lingering doubts to rest that Valli is more than up to the task of making even the starkest shades warm and inviting.

For Valli’s die-hard customers, this collection gives them a fresh new reason to stock up once again on his dreamy designs.
