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.
Red Valentino now has 100 stand-alone stores worldwide, in cities ranging from Tokyo to Cannes, France, and Rome.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
For @msgm’s spring 2018 show, creative director @massimogiorgetti said “Words, sounds, colors. Synthesis and therapy of a collection,” were the inspirations behind the collection, showing today. Read the rest of Milan spring 2018 inspirations on WWD.com. #mfw #wwdfashion #ss18
For her first solo album in over 10 years, Fergie tapped Carine Roitfeld, Mert and Marcus, Giovanni Bianco and more to create a fashion-focused video approach for the record, Double Dutchess. "Giovanni really helped me get back in touch with my tomboy side, my hardside," said the singer. #wwdeye #wwdfashion ( : @slovekinpics)
