BACK IN A NEW YORK GROOVE: Valentino continues to make New York the home of its pre-collections. The house will hold a resort runway show in New York on May 23. The location has not been confirmed. Pierpaolo Piccioli staged a fairly elaborate runway show for his most recent pre-fall collection in New York in January at The Beekman Hotel. Prior to that, when he and Maria Grazia Chiuri were still copiloting the brand, they often showed their pre-collections in New York via presentation.
