All about… VALENTINO

Hello everyone!

Today I’m going to introduce one of my favorite luxury brands : VALENTINO. If you don’t know yet, the italian Haute couture brand VALENTINO is one of the leading luxury brands in the world.

 

Since 1962, VALENTINO appeals to women of the world in search of feminine and elegant dresses. The creator of the brand, Valentino Garavani (born in 1933 in Milan), studied in Paris at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne school. He worked for several fashion designers (as Guy Laroche and Jean Dessès) before creating his own brand. He established his fashion house initially in the center of Rome. There women were buying luxury dresses, declined in bold colors, especially in red, the signature color of VALENTINO.

In his first show, his perfect dresses, elegant and refined, are acclaimed by public and press. Valentino enters the big league. Soon, his name is circulated among Hollywood stars. Throughout his career, VALENTINO will continue to transcend red carpets. Old actresses as Sophia Lauren and contemporary actresses like Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman or Gwyneth Paltrow usually wear VALENTINO gowns to get to events.

My comment:

This season at Valentino, silhouettes are all more air than each other. This collection is characterized by feminity underlined by transparency, lace, ruffles and pastel colors. Wether they are long, fluid and close to the body or mini and puffed a graceful sweetness emerges dresses designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, current creators. While retaining the codes of the brand that are elegance and sophistication, the duo managed to infuse a modern wind on the collection, always ultra-poetic and often very romantic.
