Giambattista Valli’s unique vision and artistic sensibility is celebrated with a new book released by Rizolli, capturing the designer’s take on fashion. The book presents a unique insight into one of the most creative fashion designers working today. When the Roman-born, Paris-based designer Giambattista Valli launched his own line in Paris in 2005, few anticipated the influence he would wield on contemporary fashion. Valli and his designs “herald a return to romance and an elegant femininity, melding a sense of fantasy with lean, modern lines. Impeccably tailored, meticulously detailed, and luxuriously crafted, his collections are crucial passages in contemporary fashion history, attended by everyone from royalty to A-list Hollywood celebrities.” This hard-cover coffee table book presents a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the world of one of the most unique fashion designers working today, with images of his designs and process juxtaposed with backstage runway images and artwork. “I wanted the spirit of the book to be without a real start and a real end,” said Valli. “I wanted it to be like a work in progress, far from auto-celebration, but to be just a way to think, a way to explain my vision, the more intimate side of my vision — to explain the method to people that don’t really know this profession.”
