MILAN — Red Valentino has opened the doors of a new-format store on Corso Venezia here.
Spread across three rooms, the 1,880-square-foot space is decorated like a surreal old house, with fanciful trompe l’oeil sketches on the walls and tall white cabinets housing assorted shoes and dresses from the fall 2012 and spring 2013 collections. Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli tapped artists and designers Nikki Nye and Amy Flurry of the Paper-Cut Project to create the delicate all-white paper animals seen dangling overhead and peeking from glass cupboards, as well as the towering paper wigs resting on mannequins’ heads.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
