Giambattista Valli Introduces Second Line-------
Nearly ten years after launching his eponymous ready-to-wear label (and just three years after he began showing couture in Paris), Giambattista Valli is introducing a second range for fans of his feminine, spirited clothes. His new prêt-à-porter line, Giamba (which also happens to be the designer’s nickname), will complement his original Giambattista Valli label but will offer a more contemporary, dynamic approach. Giamba will give the Valli girl the opportunity to dress for any and all occasions, but will also be available for new customers to discover at more than five hundred retail outlets worldwide. Giamba’s first collection is set to debut in September at the women’s Spring ’15 ready-to-wear shows in Milan.
