Exclusive Launch: The World Of Valentino
Today sees the launch of the World of Valentino at Harrods, an exclusive capsule collection showcasing a colourful line-up of gowns, cocktail dresses, handbags and one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments in three of the legendary Brompton Road windows and a dedicated pop-up shop on the Ground Floor.
Designed by the house’s supremely talented Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli and inspired by an iconic print from a 1973 Valentino show, the ready-to-wear collection boasts three ankle-skimming tulle gowns and one cocktail dress in either an eye-catching multi-coloured pattern of bold chevrons or stripes and embellished with sequins, or, for a more classic look, solid shades with on-tone sequins.
Studded handbags and matching shoes also feature in the pop-up, nestled in a backdrop of gleaming marble, brass and oak wood designed by the duo along with renowned architect David Chipperfield.
In keeping with the Christmas spirit, multi-coloured Christmas ornaments made from blown glass are also available for purchase and one of the windows, entitled Peace, is dedicated to the holiday season, and features a modern interpretation of the 1991 white Haute Couture gown of the same name.
