Valentino, creatively directed by Pierpaolo Piccioli, is one of those historical houses that present their collections every season in a unique way. With this Resort 2018 Collection, Valentino will launch a series of pop up stores in Tokyo, New York, Hong Kong and Milan, while collaborating at the same time with Maxfield in Los Angeles, Harrods in London and Luisa Via Roma in Florence.
Athleisure is the key!
Sport is the fundamental principle of inspiration of the Valentino Resort 2018 Collection, which revealed a new identity and an ideal space of possibilities. Functional training pieces, that will be available at the pop up, fused the active underground and the magnificence of the Valentino boutiques. The result is an unexpected, authentic and distinguished space.
Valentino always makes a statement, expresses a different perspective, and this time it’s through a setting that will portray an athletic and contemporary overview.
This Resort is the house’s opening towards an aesthetic invasion, that will break the border of the artisanal Valentino culture, in order to look towards new routes, for both men and women.
These spaces will have authors, not vendors: dedicated personnel, chosen for their inclination and cultural belonging, and will be wearing as a uniform the white shirt from the Valentino Rockstud Untitled collection, that will act as a surrounding to their personal style.
Further to the selection of items and accessories of the Valentino Resort 2018 Collection, the active spaces will also have a limited edition collection that will include multiple contemporary sports facets: basketballs, yoga mats, sneakers and other pieces that unite the Maison’s artisanal savoir-faire culture to the new sport oriented cultures.
