Giambattista Valli favored sleek lines and impeccable tailoring for his Fall 2013 collections. Sporty coats and sneakers collided effortlessly with elegant eveningwear. Perhaps most impressive, however, was his use of texture, with his fur-lined collars, embellished dresses, and glazed, lacquered, and sequin fabrics. Our favorite ensemble has to be the above Look 13. A draped black silk skirt layered underneath a distressed knit, and paired with slicked back hair and see through peep-toe booties, this ensemble embodies subtle, day-to-night glamour. A black alligator handbag with gold hardware rounds out the monochromatic look.
