Smart evening ensembles deserve equally chic outerwear such as Giambattista Valli's black and white cotton-blend tweed coat. It's exquisitely tailored in Italy to an elongated boxy silhouette with long sleeves and is finished with a black white and yellow floral-print interior alongside textural raw edges. Shrug it over a silk blouse and tailored trousers on the way to an intimate dinner party.

Giambattisa Valli's collarless white coat is the product of immaculate Italian craftsmanship. It's detailed with a distressed floral-jacquard motif in shades of green and pink - a contemporary take on a long-standing signature - and cut to a simple silhouette with slim sleeves and a concealed front fastening. Slip it on over tailored separates picking out the colours with coordinating jewellery.
SS16 is a celebration of maximalist style and this flower bud-jacquard coat from Giambattista Valli is the perfect route in. It's inspired by 1960s peacock styles but brought firmly up to date with stud-embellished patches. Team it with the label's matching trousers for the most impactful look.
The boldest looks from Giambattista Valli's Resort-2016 collection came in multicoloured chevron stripes.
