Giambattista Valli Does Denim
All we really want in life is to be one of Giambattista Valli’s girls—to rock one of his couture creations the way that Blake Lively, Diane Kruger, Kiernan Shipka and Lupita Nyong’o do. Well, it’s easier said than done, but we might be able to make that happen now.
The designer has teamed up with Seven For All Mankind for a spring collaboration that includes high-waisted jeans and dressy t-shirts in lipstick shades and animal prints. Are you sold yet? Thought so.
The goal, of course, is to bring Valli’s coveted style to a wider audience at a more attainable price point. Valli said that the collaboration blends “the Parisian and Los Angeles girls in a hotel particularly for a young multicultural customer…It’s all about glamour.” In designing the collection, Valli was given free range—he “brought his couture sensibility to the capsule, in terms of proportions, cuts and construction of the looks, and employed denim as a canvas to project his vision and strong identity,” WWD reports.
The capsule will have two deliveries, consisting of coated denim, graphic prints, high waistlines, flared pants, grosgrain trims and bleached hues. Priced between $350 and $650, the collection will be available at Seven For All Mankind retail shops and top department and multibrand stores worldwide. Pick up a pair this spring for your chance to feel like a Valli girl once and for all.
