The Giambattista Valli Couture Fall 2012 collection was recently unveiled at Paris' Fashion Week. The Italian fashion label has come a long way since Valli's past work with Emanuel Ungaro, Roberto Capucci, Fendi and Krizia. He has since pioneered disco-themed lines, a set of Pilgrim hats and flared suits, leading him to clients Victoria Beckham and Hailey Clauson.
This Fall 2012 line ushers in yet another Valli-specific trait. The red and green-hued gowns feature ruffled cuts, exaggerated pleats and kaleidoscope patterns. And while these qualities are novel in their own right, the most remarkable aspect of Valli's Paris Fashion Week exhibit is undoubtedly the cut out butterflies worn on the mouths of the models. These colorful mock bugs match the ensembles, displaying an unusual pro-insect style sense.
