Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 #PFW

"Extreme contrast is the Giambattista Valli essence: short/long, masculine/feminine. It was more intriguing than usual with his latest collection. Valli's clothes and clientele define an indolent, brittle beauty, but here, the designer was influenced by filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini and Arte Povera master Alighiero Boetti—right away, that injected something rough-edged, real-ish. As left-field as such a notion sounded, the couture slant of Positano-ready opening outfits that featured bared midriffs and shorts pleated into aerodynamic Capucci folds was soon followed by dresses jacquarded with Boetti's word pieces (earlier this season, Jil Sander went there, too). Other outfits were inspired by the burlap sacking in which coffee beans are transported." - style.com
