As his second collaboration with 7 For All Mankind launches, we introduce you to the designer channelling exquisite couture-inspired detail into denim.

Italian Designer Giambattista Valli has a famously ‘no rules' approach to style, which he applies to all his projects. This creative flair, combined with a background working for some of the world's finest Italian design houses, results in super fun and exciting pieces, crafted with perfect attention to detail. Before setting up his own line in 2011, Valli honed his skills at Fendi and Emanuel Ungaro. Now, with his own collections of read-to-wear and couture, Valli has built a name for himself as being the go-to designer for putting a feminine twist on modern tailoring, using exceptional fabrics. Writing for Style.com, Tim Blanks said that the designer has “reached a point of clarity in his career: His couture is an expression of the art of his atelier; his ready-to-wear is industrial craft, as mass as the production of these clothes is ever likely to get.”

In this rare video interview with The New York times, Giambattista Valli, talks passionately about his obsession with design, and tells how —sometimes — he has so many images going through his mind, that he cannot sleep.

With his second collaboration with 7 For All Mankind, Giambattista Valli presents precision-cut denim pieces with couture-inspired details and colours in seven shades of blue denim, white denim and Sangallo lace, and neon brights. Shop the collection here.
