VALENTINO’S AU­TUMN COU­TURE SHOW

Hong Kong Tatler - - Soiree -

Fash­ion’s elite flocked to the Ital­ian cap­i­tal for Mirabilia Ro­mae, a two-day af­fair to celebrate the evo­lu­tion of Valentino and the mai­son’s re­turn to its roots. Fresh off the plane, guests were chauf­feured on an ex­cur­sion around the city to view La Mostra Dif­fusa (“The Dif­fused Ex­hi­bi­tion”). Ten hid­den lo­ca­tions in the city, in­clud­ing a his­toric li­brary, artists’ stu­dios and se­cret rooms in pri­vate build­ings, were out­fit­ted with beau­ti­ful gowns from the Valentino archive. In the evening, the mai­son staged its haute cou­ture show on Pi­azza Mig­nanelli, just steps away from its new Pi­azza di Spagna flag­ship store. This was fol­lowed by a cock­tail party and din­ner for 200 guests at the Villa Aure­lia, an ex­clu­sive her­itage es­tate atop the Jan­icu­lum Hill. Le­banese-bri­tish singer Mika wrapped up the night with a per­for­mance of his chart top­pers, in­clud­ing Happy End­ing and Lol­lipop.
