Valentino Taps New CEO for North America

EAST MEETS WEST: Valentino looked to Asia to find its new North American leader.
Gianfranco Ditadi, regional manager of Tod’s business in China, is to join Valentino North America as president and chief executive officer at the end of February, according to market sources.
Ditadi has also held senior management roles with Ralph Lauren and Prada Group in Asia.
He is to fill a role that’s been vacant since September, when Sandra Jovicic exited the Valentino company.
Valentino is controlled by Mayhoola, an investment vehicle backed by a private investor group from Qatar, which took control of the company in 2012. The brand is designed by Pierpaolo Piccioli and is helmed by ceo Stefano Sassi. In November 2017, former Marc Jacobs International ceo Sebastian Suhl joined Valentino as managing director of global markets to help the brand’s expansion globally.

Valentino RTW and Men’s Pre-Fall 2019

TOKYO — A day after unveiling a new retail concept at its Ginza flagship store, Valentino staged its first runway show in Japan since the Eighties, with creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli also showing women’s wear and men’s wear together for the first time.
“In Japan and in the world today, I don’t think you feel such a difference between genders,” the designer said. “It’s a different way of working, but the philosophy behind men and women I think is the same. So the clothes are different, a different wardrobe, but the values are the same.”
Piccioli drew on classic couture detailing for women and tailoring for men, but reimagined them in a more modern way that is more appropriate for every day.
“I didn’t want to do streetwear or daywear generically,” he said. “I wanted to get the identity of the house, but going into the street.”
The result was a pre-fall collection that struck a perfect balance between red-carpet drama and practicality. Many of the most iconic codes of Valentino could be found yet refreshed. Flowers, such as those that adorned the dress Marisa Berenson was photographed in for Vogue in 1968, showed up as tiny buds adorning a knit dress with rows

Amber Heard, Lucy Boynton Attend Valentino Show

SECRET GARDEN: The skies stayed clear for a pre-show cocktail in the garden of the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild for guests attending the Valentino couture show on Wednesday, as the final show of the week.
Bathed in a golden light, Christian Louboutin caught up with singer Mika, while Italian director Luca Guadagnino played chaperone to actress Alba Rohrwacher.
Guadagnino said he’s hoping to premiere his remake of Dario Argento’s “Suspiria,” which he has almost completed, at the Venice Film Festival at the end of the summer. “Fingers crossed,” said the director, who is also producing a film called “Born to be Murdered.” “It’s a manhunt thriller — I’m going through my dark phase,” he quipped.
Amber Heard had brought her mother, Paige Parsons, along for the event. The pair joined Tracee Ellis Ross on the lawn by a statue of a deer for a glass of champagne.
“I love that they chose to have the reception outside so you get to experience the Parisian summer,” said Heard, who has just wrapped filming Alex Ross Perry’s “Her Smell” in New York. She stars opposite Elisabeth Moss “and a bunch of really great girls.”
“The cast is almost entirely female, which I loved,” added Heard, who is

First Ladies Wear Valentino, Louis Vuitton for Bastille Day Parade

VIVE LA FRANCE: First Lady Melania Trump was immersed in today’s Bastille Day festivities wearing a Valentino jacquard dress with a floral design and full skirt.
Looking celebratory — and patriotic — with her husband, FLOTUS joined French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte to watch the traditional military parade down the Champs-Élysées.
Brigitte Macron chose a different style, marrying a navy silk zipped jacket and short matching dress custom designed by Louis Vuitton with suede pumps from the brand, her label of choice for public appearances.
Just after 10 a.m. local time, the first couples arrived to watch troops march down the famous thoroughfare to the sounds of drums, bugles and trumpets in a display of France’s military power. For the first time, U.S. troops are to be given the honor of leading the military parade to mark the centennial of the U.S.’s entry into World War I in 1917.

First Lady Melania Trump wears a jacquard Valentino dress. 

One of the highlights of the Trumps’ whirlwind visit to Paris was the Macron-hosted dinner at chef Alain Ducasse’s Michelin-starred restaurant Le Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower Thursday night. The City of Light’s tallest landmark will also be the focal point for tonight’s

Valentino Couture Fall 2017

Years ago, John Fairchild had a name for the type of fashion editor who early on embraced the shroudlike avant-garde side of the Eighties, and who appeared to fall into a state of rapture at shows she loved. That name: fashion nun. It wasn’t a compliment.
Would that Mr. Fairchild were around today, to sit down with Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli over a good bottle of red and engage in some serious guy talk about fashion. Perhaps the younger might convince the older that there’s nothing wrong with a little fashion religion.
He’d at least make an impressive case. Piccioli believes genuinely in the power of fashion, couture in particular, to elevate the spirit. Some may find that thought itself profane. At a preview, he explained his premise. “In this moment, everything is digital and about rationalism,” Piccioli said. “I think all of us are looking for something more spiritual, beyond reality. This is really close to the idea of couture because every aspect of the sacred is expressed by rituals, and couture is made by rituals. Sacred is what is beyond reality, what you don’t see but you just feel, you just perceive. What makes couture special, unique and magical is what you don’t see —

Valentino Resort 2018

While his competition travels the globe for ever-more exotic pre-fall and cruise locations, Pierpaolo Piccioli is taking a different tack entirely. He has identified New York as Valentino’s second home away from home, after Paris, where the Rome-based house has long shown its couture and primary ready-to-wear collections.
For Piccioli, New York epitomizes cultural diversity at its most expansive and genuine, a concept he wants to capture, particularly in his pre-collections. Yet the collection Piccioli showed on Tuesday morning proved more than a sartorial civics class. It was a compelling ode to casual urbanity — chic, smart and glamorous in the most unfettered sense. As such, it offered a powerful statement of Piccioli’s intention to build the daywear side of the Valentino repertoire in a manner more pragmatic than that which meshes so seamlessly with the lyrical gowns he presents in March and October.
Yes, this collection has some pan-cultural currents, mostly in embroideries and knits that looked non-specifically tribal. But Piccioli’s primary point was to tackle head-on that which has become one of luxury’s greatest challenges: its customers’ increasingly casual lifestyles. He did so in a powerful street-sport-Valentino fusion. No easy trick, especially given the baseline of his work for the house:

Red Valentino Opens in Hong Kong, Collaborates With Walky Land

Red Valentino is opening its new store in Harbour City, Hong Kong today with a special artist collaboration and capsule collection. Pierpaolo Piccioli, who developed the store concept with architect India Mahdavi, also enlisted artist Monika Forsberg, also known as Walky Land, for a special display — three heart-shaped works of art dedicated to love and creativity — and a capsule line.
It’s no coincidence that the store opens on Valentine’s Day. “It felt natural to base the whole collection around a love theme,” said Forsberg. “We decided to mix hearts and nature and birds — elements that I have in common with the brand. For inspiration, I went for a walk where I live. It’s romantic in a British Victorian way and the front gardens are full of florals even in the winter, which spills over into the street. I soaked up the vibe and then sat down and started drawing…. I drew a large pile of hearts and plants and birds whilst listening to an audio book and planning my youngest son’s birthday party. I work in a room facing our garden. I used marker pens and gouache a little bit of ink and some coloring pens.”
The capsule collection, available in select Red Valentino stores, and online, launches in the San

Valentino Couture Spring 2017

One could argue that this couture season saw two major debuts, the more obvious, that of Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri. In a sense, her former partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, had his own debut, his first solo couture collection for Valentino, since he and Chiuri ascended to the role of joint creative directors after the retirement of the house founder.
“To do couture for a designer is a great opportunity,” Piccioli said during a preview, appearing not at all frazzled on the eve of his third show in three weeks. (He’s shown men’s last week in Paris, and prior to that, pre-fall, in New York.) “For me to create couture, to have the opportunity to work with the atelier, is a dream come true.”
For spring, Piccioli staged another exquisite Valentino Dream sequence. That it was beautiful should surprise no one, given the portfolio he has put out there these past several years (albeit, until now, a tandem résumé). During that time, the house has soared among the elite of fashion on the strength of an aesthetic that seems antithetical to the modern world, one of grace and lyricism.
What did surprise: The challenging nature of the collection. These were not easy clothes. Exquisite, yes,

How I Got My Valentino Wedding Dress for 90 Percent Off

I have spent just $ 10 on a mint-condition Marni dress at a stoop sale. I have taken home $ 30 Rag & Bone blazers from Beacon’s Closet and untold Vince cashmere from T.J. Maxx. My name is Alexis and I am an inveterate bargain hunter. I simply couldn’t imagine paying full price for a wedding dress. So, on a cold winter’s evening, a few months before my wedding this past April, I went to Century 21. 

There, hanging in a far-off corner of the clearance section next to some skirts, I saw a Valentino dress. It was covered in intricate, hand-embellished crystal and sequined embroidery and had panels of rose lace, layers of tulle, and concealed zip cuffs (for rolling up my sleeves on the dance floor). It cut at the waist in just the right spot, had just-puffy-enough sleeves, and hit just below the knees. It was originally many, many thousands of dollars, on sale for 90 percent off—perhaps my best bargain ever.

Red Valentino Unveils Web Site

MILAN — The relaunch of Red Valentino is starting with the brand’s new Web site, which has been redesigned to match the new image that creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are shaping for the label.
“Rethinking a brand is not something easy to do,” Chiuri admitted. “For us, the redesign of the Web site is the first major step in the redefinition of the label, since the site is one of the strongest tools to communicate the brand.”
The new site, available at, has an editorially oriented structure, which allows users to not only see and shop the brand’s collections and connect to its social networks, but also to navigate a range of content that might appeal to Red Valentino’s target age group.
“Our intention was to create a universe around Red where the brand’s values and images are exalted,” said Piccioli, highlighting that Red Life — one of the Web site’s sections — “is the part that really makes stand out from the crowd.”
Updated every day with new posts, Red Life is the core of the Web site with eight sub-categories. These include “Pick of the Week,” a focus on a special event taking place in the world; “Next Big Thing,” which highlights a current

Beatrice Borromeo Weds Pierre Casiraghi in Valentino

WEDDING CHOICE: Beatrice Borromeo opted for a pale pink Valentino gown to marry her longtime beau Pierre Casiraghi on Saturday at the Prince’s Palace in Monaco. The long pink-and-gold lace silk chiffon Valentino Haute Couture cape dress, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, was an adaptation of a look from the spring 2015 collection and was created specifically for the civil ceremony.
Casiraghi is the son of the late Italian entrepreneur Stefano Casiraghi and Princess Caroline of Hanover, daughter of the late Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco. Borromeo, a former model and a journalist, is the daughter of Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo and Paola Marzotto.
Fiat chairman John Elkann and his wife Lavinia Borromeo, sister of the bride, were among the guests, as well as the bride’s grandmother Marta Marzotto. Beatrice’s other sisters, Matilde and Isabella, attended with their respective husbands, Antonio von Furstenberg and Ugo Brachetti Peretti. Casiraghi’s siblings, Charlotte and Andrea, were also present, together with their respective partner and spouse, Gad Elmaleh and Tatiana Santo Domingo.
According to reports, a religious ceremony is expected to take place Aug. 1 in Italy, on the Lake Maggiore, on one of the islands owned by the Borromeo family.

Valentino Opens New Rome Flagship

ROME — Valentino is as much part of Rome as the Spanish Steps.
It is not surprising, then, that the Italian brand’s biggest flagship globally should be on Piazza di Spagna here, one of the busiest and most famous locations in the world near those very steps, in a 16th-century palazzo and a few yards away from the company’s headquarters in Piazza Mignanelli.
“The boutique has a symbolic value, it’s in the most central square in Rome near our headquarters, and the city has always been a source of inspiration for us,” said Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of the brand with Pierpaolo Piccioli, in a joint interview at their office here. While the store bowed ahead of the Easter weekend, Valentino will mark its official opening with a couture show on July 9, for the occasion to be held in Rome rather than in Paris. Guests are expected to total around 700. “It’s like we are finally inviting everyone to our own home,” Chiuri said.
“This is a very important opening with a strategic relevance after our units in Hong Kong and New York, the two world capitals of consumer spending,” said chief executive officer Stefano Sassi. “Piazza di Spagna has an

The Valentino Couture Show Was Pretty Much A Winter Wonderland

This week marked the first time Valentino debuted a couture collection in the U.S., and as you might expect — the show was an incredible winter wonderland. The 47 looks included gorgeous white capes (which we’ve been coveting all season long), delicate lace pieces and structured blazers.

It goes without saying the elaborate gowns were breathtaking… even when viewing the collection solely via Twitter. Take a look at the beautiful designs in the tweets below. Can we add any of these to our holiday wish list, please?

Unlike most boys growing up, Valentino Garavani never wanted to be a fireman, a policeman, a forest ranger, or an airline pilot. Imbued with an aesthetic sense and love of beauty from an early age, the future Italian haute couture dress designer knew where his destiny lay in making women stunningly gorgeous by dressing them in the most refined, elegant, and exclusive garments imaginable. To achieve his dream, Valentino left Italy at the age of 17 for Paris, the capital of post-World War II high fashion. Ten years later, he was in business for himself, and nine years after that, he was designing wedding dresses for such high-profile individuals as Jackie Kennedy Onassis. Valentino was soon creating evening gowns for international socialites and Hollywood movie stars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Julia Roberts, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, and many more. With lifelong personal and professional partner Giancarlo Giammetti, the House of Valentino went on to achieve stunning artistic and financial success. No one, it has been said, lived like Valentino, whose search for beauty led inexorably to la dolce vita, the “sweet life.” Valentino covers the life of this fashion designer, from his upbringing in Italy to how he managed his successful career.
