“There is not a ‘men’s couture’ or a ‘women’s couture.’ It’s just couture,'” Pierpaolo Piccioli contends.
Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli is paying tribute to Milan and its cultural scene by staging the brand’s fall 2021 at the city’s Piccolo Teatro.
Online sales climbed 62 percent at Valentino and mainland China retail sales rose 44 percent in 2020, but the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic drove total revenues down 28 percent.

Agency Women Management Milano will manage the young Piccioli’s image for future endorsements under the Talents division.
