One of my all time favourite designers is Giambattista Vali; the Italian designer just gets it so right every season, encompassing pure femininity with luxe embellishment. This Couture collection featured frills in abundance, mostly seen defining shoulders and adorning sleeves. Nature seemed to be a strong influence for his designs, with motifs of flowers, trees and petals. I absolutely adored the colour palette of this collection: beginning with bold monochrome which led into the prettier pinks and florals, then transitioning to pure whites with a hint of citrus yellow, until an explosion of fondant frills in soft pink, raspberry and apple for the finale. I've pulled together my favourite looks - but in all honesty I could have easily just put the whole sequence up, as I'm just in love with it all! See all the looks from the Couture show here.
