Giambattista Valli Spring Summer 2023 | Haute Couture

There’s nothing like the gorgeously sumptuous escapism of a Giambattista Valli haute couture show. Never mind what darkness there may be around us, his purpose is to create a permanent dolce vita of overwhelmingly pretty color and optimism. “In this confusing moment, I like the idea to bring the spectator through, to a holding moment of relaxed and peaceful effortlessness.”

And there it all was: Giambattista Valli’s recipe for visual relaxation therapy laid out before us in yards and yards of sugar pinks, pastel blues, and orange sorbet. He had a pinboard full of inspirational pictures of Beverly Hills as a starting point this season. That’s where the sunshine colors came from, he said. Asked about the starting point for the two stunning liquid silver knotted and draped siren dresses somewhere in the middle of the collection, he replied, “Oh, they’re just draped like she’s got out of the pool and just tied it around her. Easy, like a pareo!”

Perhaps there really are women who casually dress like that around their pools. If so, you can guarantee that Giambattista Valli knows them. But really, it’s as easy as ever to see exactly where these airy gowns and vast opera coats are certain to be seen. They’re absolutely made for the awards season, for the first Monday in May, events, and weddings.

If anything, his exuberant style has become yet more expansive and voluminous this season—although amongst all the trains and poufs and bows, he also has a keen eye for satisfying the new-nakedness. In a huge Giambattista Valli gown, a woman can have it both ways: she can also show her legs and have slices of her torso exposed by those ingeniously-swathed drapes.

The options for glamorous comings and goings on red carpets are almost unlimited. And not necessarily limited by age, either. There are stately coats and columns galore here, fit to make a mature woman feel like a queen. But that’s Giambattista Valli all over: always thinking about keeping everyone happy.
