Fashion, clothes, objects, furnishings: The volume narrates the philosophy of taste and aesthetics of a creator who is the star of the Italian fashion scene. Not just the brilliant portrayal of the activity of a sophisticated craftsman and artist, but also the analysis of “Valentino style” and the fascinating exploration of an entire world: a fantastic journey through what could be defined the Valentino universe.
The volume, divided into seventeen themed chapters, contains an extraordinary selection of photographs created expressly for the book and taken from the huge body of images amassed over the years.
The highly innovative and detailed biography-chronology updated in 1998 narrates the life and works of Valentino through the comments of the leading columnists of international journalism.
