MILAN — Valentino is bringing a touch of Rome to Paris with its newly renovated flagship on Avenue Montaigne, to be unveiled Saturday. A dinner will mark the official opening on March 5, after the Valentino show.
Channeling a Roman palazzo, the unit reflects the brand’s renewed focus on its own retailing and the relevance of the city for Valentino. “Paris’ Avenue Montaigne boutique has always been the most important, with the most relevant sales and the brand shows in Paris,” said chief executive officer Stefano Sassi. “The location is fundamental; Paris was a priority after Milan, where we fine-tuned the concept.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
