If you've ever wanted to know what close friends call accomplished couturier and designer Giambattista Valli, the answer is in his new line: Giamba. It's the designer's nickname and also his second ready-to-wear line (the first is Giambattista Valli Paris). It's not a diffusion line, just another aspect of the Giambattista Valli aesthetic. "With Giamba the designer will express a different yet complementary philosophy, stemming from the need to develop another aspect of his personality," they announced in a statement.

"There is also a playful, underground and sexy side in me and in my designs that you will see in the Giamba line," Giambattista said. "I've been thinking about it for a while and waited for the right time, and now it's matured. I am really very happy."

The designer will be creating two seasonal collections and two pre-collections for the line, with the seasonal collections showing at Milan Fashion Week starting this September.Fill the time until then by lusting over his AW14 show; it's magic.
