Giambattista Valli has always felt a level of comfort playing with surface elements, and since that’s now a major trend, it provided a good moment for the designer to explore the theme further. He did it via knits, beginning with the first exit, a cozy black-and-white heavy-gauge oversize sweater teamed with a simple black skirt over slim black pants.

A black-and-white fur skirt mimicked the heavy knit of the cardigan it was paired with. Color came by way of prints and stripes in a burnt orange and red palette — often mixed and matched in the same piece, including a few belted floor-length evening dresses. They added a subtle touch of bohemian luxury and underscored the graphic feel of the collection.
