Flowy dresses and feminine pieces dominated the Giambattista Valli Spring 2016 ready-to-wear catwalk in a blend of blooms, stripes, and polka dots. The collection emitted a retro vibe, liberated with dreamy embellished billowing dresses, floral patterned tunics styled with slim-fit cropped pants, and an abundance of daisy appliqués. A-line miniskirts were paired with high neckline tops, which were adorned with scarves or embellished bibs. Meanwhile, the gladiator sandal was updated with a glittery platform.
