Key pieces Giambattista Valli continued to explore his simple yet elegant aesthetic, producing a collection of sweet shift dresses with asymmetric necklines or long sleeves. The series of dresses featured complex shoulder ruching or woollen pleats and had chartreuse or silver prints. Elsewhere, dresses were trimmed with shaggy hair, while silk was twisted into large drooping knots on skirts. A minimal direction came through via some very simple dresses in a monochrome palette, lifted with a thin neon waistband.
Commercial appeal This was a wearable collection and featured some strong separates. The gowns in the collection employed acres of tulle, which was a prolific fabric on the Paris catwalks.
