Despite being an Italian fashion house, Valentino has shown its collections—womenswear, menswear and haute couture—in Paris for about a decade now. But with COVID-19 still posing a threat globally, the fashion house has decided to show in Milan this year, a quick train ride away from its headquarters in Rome.
The spring/summer 2021 runway show will mark the first time ever that Valentino will be showing both its menswear and womenswear collections together. While Pierpaolo Piccioli has been the sole creative director since 2016, each collection has been designed independently of one another. It will be interesting then to see a cohesive outing across both segments coming together under a common theme and inspiration. And perhaps, set a precedence for future Valentino collections.
