Runway Report: Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture

Giambattista Valli went back to the his extreme avant garde roots for his Spring 2015 Couture collection, which was presented in Paris yesterday. I really loved the collection, which is the opposite opinion to most that I have spoken too and read from. What people have come to know Giambattista for is amazing red carpet gown and cocktail dresses, when the over the top styles shown in yesterdays collection were the basis on what the house was founded on. The collection almost looked to me as a retrospective on several collections that Giambattista has presented in the past. Some of my favorite looks were ones that will most likely never see the likes of a red carpet. A white riffled full skirted cocktail dress white black stripes and bow on the bodice and the pink silk tunic and matching pant ensemble paired with the crazy dramatic pink ruffle cape. These are looks that I know will grace the pages of couture editorials but not the red carpets.
The looks above are more about what I can picture on the red carpets. Keira Knightley in the look all the way to the left, Nieves Alvarez in the black pant ensembles, Hailee Steinfeld in the pink confection in the center, and Emma Stone for both of the looks on the right side. The bones of this collection tell me that there might be many of a custom creation made for starlets to wear for events like the Oscars, Met Ball and Cannes, so those of you who are fearing for the state of red carpet glamour I am sure that the Giambattista Valli edge is not going anywhere anytime soon.
