Giambattista Valli RTW Fall 2014 showed a lineup that was sophisticated and full of youthful charm. He made the latter point most effectively via his silhouettes: Not one look came past the knee. Valli also approached the idea with some interesting textures and new riffs on volume. Specifically, several fit-and-flare dresses and coats were cut with geometric flaps on the side of the waist for an effect that resembled a handkerchief or godet skirt. The shape lent a graphic, modern edge to traditional cocktail looks.
