Valentino has offered customers two opportunities to shop and give back with an “Every Mother Counts” store event and dinner today, and an “I Love Spike” pop-up boutique to be followed by a dinner on Friday night.
On Nov. 30, Christy Turlington Burns and Pierpaolo Piccioli will greet shoppers at the brand’s Fifth Avenue boutique, where the limited-edition T-shirt that Piccioli designed in support of Turlington Burns’ maternal health organization Every Mother Counts will be sold, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the charity. The shirt will be available on Valentino’s Web site beginning Friday.
On Dec. 1., the brand will launch their “I Love Spike” pop-up boutique at 121 Spring Street in Soho. The temporary store will be open through Jan. 7 and feature an exclusive bag, Valentino’s Rockstud Spike Garavani shoulder bag. As at the brand’s “I Love Spike” event in Paris during PFW, a selfie contest will gift the winner one of the bags.
Both store events will be toasted with dinners. On the 30th, “Every Mother Counts” will be celebrated with a dinner at the home of Giancarlo Giammetti, with Anne Hathaway, Ben Stiller, Helena Christensen and more expected as guests. After the “I Love Spike” event, a dinner at the Waverly Inn will be held.
