Valentino: Mirabilia Romae

valentino book roma_2_1

The renowned Italian fashion house of Valentino since 2008 has been anchored by creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. The pair has moved the house’s aesthetic forward with their contemporary feminine designs. The duo of Chiuri and Piccioli each personality possesses very different design viewpoints, yet together, they blend these contrasts into a timeless mélange of clean simplicity and modern elegance. The city of Rome itself, the Eternal City, to Chiuri and Piccioli is a most profound inspiration. Its beautiful blend of ancient and modern, pagan and baroque, historic buildings and contemporary lifestyle reflects their own distinctive approach in which heritage, tradition, and innovation coexist to create a new concept of the house of Valentino.
