Giambattista Valli's Pre-AW16 collection may have been more nine-to-five-focused than usual, but the Italian designer allowed his signature elegance to shine through, as exemplified by this crepe dress. Demonstrating retro influences with its short length, the dramatically flared sleeves and fitted silhouette bring an element of the brand's exquisite tailoring to an otherwise pared-back piece.
