Couture Autumn/Winter 2013-14 : Armani Privé & Giambattista Valli.


ImageUnder volume, fragile femininity.

You may say that there are no similarities between these two looks, not all. Don’t you ? Hmmm…

Hair are completely different as well as shoes ; that’s a fact. The silhouette is enhanced in the same way, yet. Look at the waist… two belts for one and unique slim figure. Giorgio Armani and Giambattista Valli both offer you to shine in the very soon arriving cold with a fresh make up. Delighted about next winter ? You should.

I admit these looks are quite dissimilar, however, the same desire to express femininity and sensuality through volume should be noticed. That’s the reason why I decided to put them together. Armani’s pink vaporous coat breaks off woman’s sensual curves, while Giambattista Valli’s pearl grey dress conceals hips, but subtly attracts the look on them (letting you guess them, actually). Because both designers chose to play with volumes, they preferred to stay sober concerning accessories. The attitude is already part of them. As well as details : golden pumps, golden clutch’s components at Armani and black belt, black pumps at Giambattista Valli.

They also highlighted the contrast between materials : “froufrou” Valli’s underskirt raises the pleated part of the dress, what does not weigh down the figure, but on the contrary gives to it dynamic. And we love it !  Feeling like Alice in Wonderland never killed nobody. On the other hand, Armani’s atmosphere is more like a “gangster’s paradise” with, of course, the perfect femme fatale it includes : fur versus silk, firmness versus softness. Fashion is all about contradiction : un “je t’aime moi non plus”…
