Valentino

Philosophy

Valentino is the main line of fashion couturier Valentino Garavani, who established his label in Rome in 1960 with his legendary business partner Giancarlo Giammetti.

At first the designer from Voghera worked with Jean Dessès and Guy Laroche and in the 60’s he joined the fashion world when his creations were published on Vogue.

In the 70’s he chosed the "V" as logo: his signature, together with his passion for the red colour, became synonymous with class and haute couture, one of the most storied brands in the world; his women's flawless dresses emphasized hips revealing the décolleté, embellished with jewels, romantic touches such as ruffles and embroideries, giving  an unconventional idea of femininity and of extreme elegance that became a way of being.

Today Valentino offers a wide range of luxury products from Haute Couture and Prêt-à-Porter to an extensive accessories collection that includes bags, shoes, eyewear, silks and perfumes.

Valentino Haute Couture offers a variety of collections that comprise of unique items exclusively handcrafted in the prestigious Roman atelier, where a team of about 40 seamstresses is entirely dedicated to handcrafting precious one-of-a-kind confections.

Valentino Prêt-à-Porter presents sophisticated and exclusive lines for men and women that target a chic young clientele that belongs to the new generation of international jet setters.

REDValentino was launched in 2003 to round out the offering with a young, contemporary and romantic line-up that mirrors the house’s top codes.
A modern fairytale underscored by girly creations, playful combinations, impalpable fabrics and elegant finishes and details. 

Valentino is dedicated to the accessories, a vast category that includes bags, shoes, small leather goods, belts and costume jewelry for women and men adorned with classic iconic Valentino motifs such as flowers, bows and lace, always trendy and worn by celebrities and Hollywood stars, socialites and fashion leaders yesterday as well as today.

In October 2008, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, who had worked under Valentino Garavani’s for over a decade, were named Valentino Creative Directors, rejuvenating the brand via highly-successful collections that stayed true to the brand’s legacy of half a century while moving the design aesthetic forward with designs that are at once feminine and contemporary.

The duo debuted with their first Haute Couture collection in Paris in January 2009, demonstrating the ability to fully understand and interpret the Valentino world.

The brand is available in over 90 countries thanks to a capillary retail network charted out over the decades of 160 directly-operated stores located in the most elegant shopping streets in the world as well as in over 1300 points of sale.
