Giambattista Valli met Kopajos in Mykonos
Since 2005, Giambattista Valli has run his eponymous Maison, playing his concept of the woman’s elegance. He gained his experience working at Roberto Capucci, Fendi, and being the creative director of Emanuel Ungaro. Right after, Valli understood it was the right time to express his idea of fashion. So, he moved to Paris from Italy, working on both the haute couture and the ready-to-wear collections.
Remarkably, he is one of the few non-French designers granted membership into the historic Chambre Syndicate de la Haute Couture. His narrative is about a love story, shared with dreamers and lovers with a universal philosophy: ageless, timeless, effortless.
Love is one of the hot topics for Giambattista Valli, and in September 2021, he even launched The “Love” Collection, the House’s first-ever Bridal collection.
What makes his creations so contemporary?
First of all, the soft lines, which give the dresses an incredibly feminine quality. Valli enhances women, letting them free in the spirit through his pieces, often leaving the shoulder and the décolleté visible.
The palette he works with swings from white and light tones, including pink and green, to more strong shades, such as red. This etheric world leaves black to the haute couture, playing with patterns, textures, and materials.
Valli expanded his brand, also embracing bags, scarves, jewels, and recently sunnies. He met Kopajos on Mykonos island and immediately felt the glamour, the spirit of a sunglasses brand with a pretty similar story to his.
The collaboration started presenting the 2022 spring/summer ready-to-wear collection during the 2021 Paris Fashion Week. Giambattista Valli praises the woman’s silhouette through colors, decorations, and accessories. Jewels and hats, indeed, enrich all the outfits.
The sunglasses design is Sandor, a squared frame made of titanium that perfectly matches the fresh look for the upcoming season.
