The new Giambattista Valli Haute Couture collection inspired by Seville, Spain brings modern drama to Paris Fashion Week. Premiering by video, the Spanish inspired style was paired with some of Seville’s famous landmarks next to the models, accompanying the show, displaying the culture, colors, textures, and style the collection is inspired by. Shots of the interior and exterior of the breathtaking Royal Alcázar of Seville, Catedral de Sevilla, and the Plaza de España paired with the models made the reference apparent immediately.

Beginning with slow flamenco music transitioning into violin’s, the collection has red ruffled capes and dresses, massive blush pink tule dresses, and face-pieces made of leaves. Each model had a variation of a 1960’s hairstyle and makeup with up-do’s and thick black eyeliner. They were accompanied by a ballet dancer interpretive dancing around the models while seeming to win over their hearts. He wears a white ballet outfit but the billowing sleeves are lines with white ostrich feathers. In one shot, he’s in black lace from neck to toes.

Almost every dress has a train to add to the 1960’s drama. One of them was a feminine take on what a matador wears in the ring with an embellished vest but paired with a tule skirt. In one of the few cocktail dresses was a baby pink tule dress with black flats and white flowers and bows on a beehive, almost like she came out of an early 60’s technicolor film. One of the standouts was a massive pink dress with rose-gold polka dots, matching scarf, a beige belt, white embellished bolero, and pink flowers and white bows. Not only does the model take up space with it, it is the most interestingly styled piece of the show.

Giambattista Valli’s collection is contemporary take on 60’s fashion and Spanish style, fashion, and art, remixing the classic with new flares of curiosity and daringly gentle and beautiful.
