A Magazine Curated By and Valentino are delighted to announce that issue N°20 has been curated by Pierpaolo Piccioli for an international release on December 3rd, 2019. Based in Rome, the Italian fashion designer was named the sole Artistic Director at Valentino in July 2016, after having first worked under Mr. Valentino in 1999 and maintaining a long working relationship with the house ever since. Piccioli is known for re-awakening the extravagant spirit of haute couture in fashion, with his use of bright colour and grand volumes contrasted by his willful advocation of fashion as a conduit for optimism, diversity and inclusivity.
