joanne-black- Giambattista-Valli

Joanne Black @ the Giambattista Valli show

Location: Espace Ephémère Tuileries
Joanne Black Style: Alaia white shirt and belt, YSL trench coat, Georgina goodman boots and a YSL bag

The collection: As a younger collection for the fashionable twenty-something, there was a lot of leg on show on Valli’s catwalk! Influenced by artists such as Brancusi, Picasso and Man Ray, this was a sophisticated S/S 2010 collection, complete with lots of drop waist frothy mini-dresses – with feathers or jewels – as well as the egg-shaped dresses and cocoon coats that have made an appearance over the last few seasons.
The wish list: Lots to choose from but the short black drop waist dress with frothy feathers and the leopard print jacket and shorts caught my eye.
The style: Italian Independent designer Lapo Elkann looked super cool sitting on the front row in a beige brown suit teamed with an interesting grey and black Burberry scarf and signature shades from his own collection.
