Brooklyn is the downtown Manhattan of 30 years ago, according to Giambattista Valli. And that’s the neighborhood where his spring Giamba girl — an international globetrotter with a dynamic lifestyle — lives her cool, hip days. “There are clothes for the office, for her parties, for the weekend’s tour at the flea market, for picking up her kids at school,” said Valli, who highlighted that his friends, such as Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Margherita Missoni and Giovanna Battaglia, among others, continue to be his muses.
The collection actually offered a versatile wardrobe, infused with femininity, glamour and a touch of rock ‘n’ roll. There were blouses and flared miniskirts showing a patchwork of floral prints, caftan-like ample frocks splashed with a modern version of the classic paisley motif, as well as ruffled denim shorts worn with flounce blouses. A sleeveless T-shirt featuring a pop logo graphic of sequined lips with a cigarette was matched with a striped sequined miniskirt with a side slit for a sexy kick, while a maxi lace dress in a bubblegum pink tone exuded innocent beauty.
