If you've seen Valentino: The Last Emperor Standing, you knew from the moment the movie ended, there were going to be MAJOR changes happening at the fashion house. Since the release, Valentino has retired and ownership has changed. The new design-heads behind Valentino are Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli - who are far from new. The design duo have been working for 10 years with Valentino learning the in's and out's of couture technique.
In an effort to pay homage to the impeccably beautiful craftsmanship that is behind Valentino's glamorous gowns, while inviting a new customer base that may not have red carpets events or need exquisite gowns to wear to the Met Ball, Chiuri and Piccioli have designed what they hope will be a balance between the two – upscale t-shirts.
