Established in Rome in 1962, the Valentino fashion house is one of the highest expressions of couture savoir faire and the excellence that has made Italian products famous worldwide.
The ateliers in Palazzo Mignanelli, the company's historic headquarters in the heart of the Eternal City, are where creativity and expertise meld in search of timeless elegance. Lightness, grace, and precious delicacy are in the DNA of Valentino.
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have been its Creative Directors since 2008. Condensed and simplified, the fashion house's iconographic legacy has been reinterpreted and recontextualized. Now Valentino is contemporary. Heritage and style blend in its future-oriented concept that is rich in memories but never nostalgic.
That same concept translates to Valentino’s The Shops at Crystals boutique, which was developed by the Creative Directors in cooperation with architect David Chipperfield, and can be seen in other Valentino boutiques across the world. The Shops at Crystals boutique carries women’s ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe collections in an intimate atmosphere of seamlessly connected rooms with modern and timeless design that mirrors the collections.
