Designer Giambattista Valli gave his signature feminine style a sleek edge with his latest offering, unveiling the Fall/Winter 2017 ready-to-wear collection at Paris Fashion Week.

Giambattista Valli appreciates the melancholic allure of the city, and more importantly, the women who inhabit it. His latest collection was, in essence, a love letter to French girl style of the most romantic and soigné kind. La petite robe noire, or the little black dress in English, has been a linchpin of a Parisian wardrobe for more than half a century, and it’s one that’s close to Valli’s heart.
