With his celebrity fanbase already treating the world to Giambattista Valli’s tulle confections, let’s spotlight the softer side of his 2019 haute couture collection. These three looks stood out, both in the choice of fabric and the use of feathers, the soft palette of pink and white taffy, and the ease at which the models moved in them. The collection was a discussion in opposites with Valli seemingly covering all the angles of client tastes – body-hugging to billowy pouf. Every look floated down the runway; a testament of the creator who redefines elegant excess over and over.
So while all the stars, high society, and those with more credit than a small country amass in Paris, we on the west coast will stay indoors, all cozy in chunky sweaters and statement leggings.
Next time you visit any of our five Turnabout locations to drop off pieces for consignment, indulge a little. Try on something a little shinier than you are comfortable with, add an outrageous pop-of-colour handbag to your all-black uniform, or step-up your heel height an inch or two. You will be amazed at how good it feels!
