S/S 2011 Runway Giambattista Valli Emboridered Leopard Dress

About

The spring 2011 collection by Valli was met by rave reviews. Tim Blanks for Vogue said of this collection: "There's something about Giambattista Valli's clothes that is so fundamentally optimistic, they've got you at hello. Maybe it's the va-va-voom echoes of Rome in the sixties, a quintessential dolce vita moment that resounds through the decades. With today's show, it wasn't like the outfits themselves were retro, but there was a kicky energy that felt like it might have come from bright young things getting dressed up and following Valli, their pied piper, through noble streets to a hole in the wall where they'd have a hell of a time. Two words: "short" and "flat." As in dresses and shoes. We should probably add "sheer" to that list, because a Valli girl is shameless in her pursuit of pleasure." and Hamish Bowles added that "Giambattista Valliwas thinking about “the four R’s,” the qualities he associates with “all my front-row girls. They are romantic, rebel, rock, and royal!” This dress was Look #20 on the runway and was part of the pieces that he did that featured this print. Here we have a shorter shift dress silhouette with a great sixties vibe. The inner dress has a larger version of the cat print with a second floating layer that is attached and gives it a little sleeve and airiness. The hem of the dress has a beautiful, thick white embroidery detailing. Once on it is very chic and simple and flattering. The contrast of the prints is allowed to shine and really acts as a neutral. Once small detail I love is that there are hidden pockets long each hip and each is lined in the same silk chiffon that the top overlay is constructed from. It's like a little secret touch that only the wearer knows. Excellent, appears unworn condition. Fully lined in a silk organza and hidden pockets along the hip. It closes with a back hidden set zipper.
