A Luxurious Flower Garden In The Giambattista Valli Couture Collection

“Couture is a moment when you go really far from fashion,” Giambattista Valli stated, “It’s really another thing.”

The designer’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture collection evoked the idea of a magnificent flower garden (much like Monet used to cultivate and paint in his works), transposed in a predominant red and green palette onto a series of exquisite gowns in the most luxurious fabrics.

Breathtaking gowns in sensuous organza, weightless chiffon, luscious satin, fine silk, patterned lamé and even an evening coat made of feathers in shades of green provided the collection with a powerful sense of elegance, along with minute embellishments in the form of giant ruffles that seemed to blossom right then and there.

The dream-like atmosphere of the luxurious flower garden was completed by the real butterflies that grazed the model’s lips and hair, and jewel ones clung onto twisted branches in the form of waist-cinching belts and collars.
