Discover Valentino's Tokyo Takeover

Today, Pierpaolo Piccioli staged Valentino's very first Pre-Fall 2019 runway show in Tokyo. Both local and international celebrities and fashion editors gathered to experience Piccioli’s debut men’s and women’s Pre-Fall collections show for the Italian brand – the first Pre-Fall that united collections of both genders at Valentino. And the result was eye-catching to say the least: deep red floor-skimming evening dresses made quite an impression, next to oversized knits and ruffled jumpsuits that revealed a pittoresque Koi fish print from up close. Prior to the show, the Italian brand turned its Ginza flagship store into a temporary concept store curated by Sarah Andelman, the former Buying Director of Colette Paris, and unveiled new collaborations as well as a capsule collection. And the fashion madness in Tokyo has barely started: later this week, Kim Jones will reveal his new Pre-Fall show for Dior Homme. Keep your eyes peeled for more.
