Recent Giambattista Valli Deep Blue Fitted Silk & Chiffon Dress
The cut of the dress is so unusual and flattering when on. The navy silk skirt is cut so that it is fitted and curves up around the waist to sit high under the bust line. It curves out and over the hips and then comes back in at the knee for a skinny pencil fit. Wrapped around the waist are bands of a wide cut cotton grosgrain to add detailing. These are attached along the sides of the back zipper and drape into place once on the body. Above this the bodice is done in a pretty and soft silk chiffon over an inner lining. It is set to vertically pleat over the bust from the neckline and this adds a feminine feel to the dress. The silk is the same deep blue and the nix of the three textures is very nice. The high capped shoulder s are set wide so that you get a flash of collarbone. Excellent condition.
