The house of Valentino is nested in the heart of Rome, the Eternal City, and expresses a point of view on the
contemporary world using history as a playground and the Atelier as a place that produces both beauty and thought.
The story began in 1959.
2016 marks a new beginning, under the Creative Direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli. A new set of values, that are both of
the moment and faithful to its heritage, are created: grace and delicacy, both as an attitude and as a silhouette; a
celebration of individuality; emotional beauty; the blending and merging of different languages.
Style is essential and impalpable.
The idea of contemporary humanism leads a creative quest that revolves around the personality of the wearer.
Vision, products, retail spaces share the same traits: from the one-of-a-kind Haute Couture creations to women’s and
men’s ready-to-wear and accessories, from eyewear to fragrances to the boutiques, Valentino is synonymous of
elegance, pureness, craftsmanship, uniqueness.
