One of Milan Fashion Week's best surprises for Spring/Summer 2015 was the premiere of Giambattista Valli’s new project: Giamba. Feminine, flawless and flirtatious, this first collection showed how beautifully Valli’s playful and ethereal essence behaves when aimed to a remarkably younger audience. Yes, the whole concept of youth was all over each and every outfit, from the irreverent '60s influence to the easy, breezy beauty look the models embraced with a super cool attitude.
It was a sugar and spice collection, for girls in love with their own skin. Innocent and provocative, sheer nudes floated gracefully in the shape of short girly dresses. Some black dresses and little jumpsuits were there to create a contrast, but not to give up on featherweight delicacy. Some tasteful lingerie sets were elegantly exposed in a very free spirited, festival evocative way. The black or white polka dot tights, worn with lovely velvety platform sandals, added an almost demure feel to it all.
The floral (slightly psychedelic) patterns, the tiny little ruffles and the exquisite embellishments, all clearly used in Giambattista’s signature ways, captured the '60s vibe in a very refreshing manner. A-line silhouettes turned into eye candy.
