Runway : Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear, Paris



AFTER MRS. GEORGE CLOONEY WORE A COUTURE VALLI DRESS THE DAY AFTER HER WEDDING, the world can’t stop talking about the designer. The fact that he sent such a beautiful collection down the runway further attests to the international praise and commendment his designs are about to receive. For spring, Valli was inspired by Japan’s postwar movement, where artisanal and industrial techniques amalgamated into one — thus the precision of the A-line silhouettes, the subtle, deliberate and slightly mutinous details found in the form of a black stripe around the waist on a crisp white feather gown or black commas on a flared dress with a modernised violet flower print, and dresses with an ever-present floral motif delicately hidden among white fringes. —Victoria

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
