It’s been a long time since we served some fashion here at Vili Flik, so I think we’re all starved for some extravaganca. And who better to indulge us than the brilliant Italian designer Giambattista Valli (1966 – )?
This style is so wonderfully over the top, which, to quote Vogue, “are the closest to couture that ready-to-wear could possibly produce.” Ah, Vogue. Ah, Valli.
Mr. Valli studied art in Rome and London, and then landed a job with Roberto Capucci, another awesome Italian fashion designer. (Just for the record, ye amazing fashion gurus out there, all of us are currently unemployed).
Valli has also collaborated with Fendi, before he, in 1997, moved to Paris to work for Emanuel Ungaro.
In 2005, Giambattista Valli introduced his own line to great success which has continued to grow for the past six years. And no wonder! The clothes are simply marvelous.
