Valentino’s New Campaign

Valentino has been making star-studded headlines already this year with their new campaign. A legacy of glamour and elegance continues to have Valentino at the forefront of fashion. B Sunglasses welcomes brand new Valentino stock to our site…


From a young age Valentino Garavani began advancing in his fashion career. He began as an apprentice for designers and trained at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Valentino launched his eponymous fashion house in Rome and it became recognised straight away. Synonymous for its haute couture, glamorous red dresses and ultra-feminine style, women all over the world sought to be dress in Valentino. The wedding dress of many stars have been designed by the brand, including Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Hathaway and Courtney Cox. Just last week Nicole Kidman stepped out to the Critics Choice Awards in a bold, fuchsia sheer Valentino gown and had cameras clicking and tongues wagging.

Valentino’s new spring/summer 2018 campaign screams Italian Romance. The new faces include top model Gigi Hadid as well as Aurora Talarico, Rianne Van Rompaey, Adut Akech, Oumie Jammeh and Felice Noordhoff. The models are photographed by the famous duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in New York. The new collection from the brand’s Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccoli includes stunning long dresses, some in tulle and other with frills in bold reds or softer pinks. Many have commented on Hadid’s dramatic change in look in the avant-garde project as being almost unrecognisable. She dons silk dresses, with her hair scraped back and vibrant red eyeshadow. Picciolo took a nostalgic turn back to the roots of the heritage label saying “I wanted to get back something of the glamour of the ‘80s that Valentino did so well.”
