For his new Spring/Summer 2023 collection, Giambattista Valli has taken a new step in its typical romanticism. The brand’s aesthetic codes of lace and tulle are mixed with orientalist inspirations, including drawings of flowers and photos of his own personal collection of miniature Indian paintings which were incorporated into the clothes on t-shirts and in prints.
“I love the idea of women having no borders and boundaries, being inspired by other cultures, and being nomadic. Now more than ever, I think it’s very important to be open”, he said.
Luxurious, louche and graphic, it was all about colors and trimmings, maxi-earrings, crystal bindis, turbans and big shades. “I always loved the idea of nomadic. But more than ever – and in my country first of all – it’s nice to have no limits; no borders. I want to see the horizon and get inspired by other cultures. Be curious, be nomadic”, Valli added.
