Couture Week Favourite: Giambattista Valli

I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce a 'first' on Stephanie Wears... today, namely the inclusion of a fashion show. However couture week is basically my Christmas, and despite the fact that I can't afford it, I can certainly appreciate it... and dream about it

 I certainly never expected to like any other show more than Chanel (I very rarely do), however this time I was left disillusioned with the general strange shapes and bold floral prints. There might have been two looks that really caught my eye, when I'm usually drooling over every single creation. Cue Giambattista Valli. His couture collection was a symphony of monochrome, with flirty pastels and a burst or two of yellow; in dramatic, bold shapes, mixed with simple, classic femininity. Every single look is a glorious triumph, and I found it excrutiatingly difficult to pick a few of my favourites. But, nevertheless, here they are...
