To the sounds of a dramatic symphony, endlessly romantic looks cascaded down the Giambattista Valli Haute Couture catwalk in Paris on Monday. The opening look — a black, cheeky bodysuit with oversized white roses at the décolletage — foreshadowed what would be a skin-baring collection.

Mini dresses with voluminous trains followed — Valli never gave up on so-called "mullet hems," but could he now be setting the stage for the 2010s high-low trend to make a couture-approved comeback? Much of the volume present throughout each ensemble takes the shape of the cherished bow: Billowing loops at the sides of models' hips make the person the center of the bow; elsewhere, sizable bows shape out the shoulder of an asymmetrical gown. The well-loved motif also appeared in models' hair.

Aside from the trendy rosettes and ribbon, a common thread throughout the collection is the neverending parade of bare shoulders. Many of the gowns feature ultra-low necklines, leaving models' collarbones to glisten under the runway lights. Voluminous, puffed skirts balance out the lack of fabric at the top.

Below, see all the looks from the Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Spring 2024 show.
