Valentino (1932)

The Italian couturier designed exquisite and modern luxurious garments highlighting a skilful craftsmanship earned in Parisian salons. An entertainer himself, his gowns are celebrities favourites when it comes to parade on the red carpet. A legitimate giving-back when we know that the designer's lucky charm is his very own “Valentino Red”.
