Giambattista Valli delivers fairytale couture show

Giambattista Valli blew us away with their spring/summer haute couture show at Paris Fashion Week, showcasing a selection of -out-of-this-world dresses and evening coats.

The Italian fashion house worked mainly from a black, white and pale pink palette, sticking to quite a structured feel, with cinched in waists featuring predominantly.

Voluminous gowns made the most impact, with full skirts giving the dresses a fairytale feel. There were also asymmetric hemlines, mini-length cocktail dresses and evening dresses with high splits which displayed matching cigarette pants worn below.

The thoroughly modern collection is sure to be gracing the world's red carpets shortly, take a look at some of our favourites below.
