VALENTINO

Cre­ative di­rec­tors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier­paolo Pic­ci­oli put to­gether a homage to artist Marc Cha­gall’s Rus­sian and Jewish her­itage with a dreamy col­lec­tion in­spired by his painted land­scapes. ‘He had an in­cred­i­ble life, very hard, but he main­tained his op­ti­mistic vi­sion,’ Pier­paolo said of Cha­gall’s in uence on the col­lec­tion. There was all the sig­na­ture Valentino splen­dour, em­bel­lished with folk­lore pat­terns that cre­ated a ro­man­tic, ethe­real feel­ing.
