INSPIRATION Hermès SS||2012... Giambattista Valli Resort SS||2014

Even if Giamattista Valli's Resort SS||2014 collection had as a theme the "Grey Gardens' and was an ode to the amazing looks of "Little Edie" [right], it also recalls some outfits of the SS||2012 collection of Hermès [left]. 
[Grey Gardens is a wonderful 1975 documentary film by Albert and David Maysles. The film depicts the everyday lives of the two Edith Beales, a reclusive socialite mother and daughter of the same name who lived at Grey Gardens, a decrepit mansion at 3 West End Road in the wealthy Georgica Pond neighborhood of East Hampton. "Big Edie" Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale were the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.]
