NEW HOME: Valentino said Monday it will open a store in Piazza Mignanelli, where the fashion house is headquartered. The new flagship will occupy two different adjacent buildings, recently acquired by Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani. Mayhoola for Investments, an investment vehicle backed by a private investor group from Qatar, bought Valentino Fashion Group SpA in 2012.

Denying a media report speculating that the company planned to move its offices into the new buildings, Valentino affirmed that its headquarters will remain in Palazzo Mignanelli.
