Pierpaolo Piccioli says goodbye to Valentino after 25 years

Under Piccioli’s guidance, Valentino drew in a new generation of fashion fans, with the designer renowned for his love of wider culture – from music and cinema to literature and beyond. Across his time at the helm, Piccioli forged close ties with artists like FKA twigs, who performed at two Valentino shows, as well as Erykah Badu, who crafted the soundtrack for his SS23 show.

In a sea of male designers who project their own fantasies onto women, Piccioli was also committed to understanding and accommodating his customers in what they actually wanted to wear. After a series of models tripped and tumbled down the runway in the shoes they were given to wear for SS23, at his landmark destination show in Rome – for which the house shut down the famed Spanish Steps – the designer gave his cast the option of wearing heels, flats, or going barefoot. 

“Thanks to Mr. Valentino and Giancarlo Giammetti who have blessed me with their trust, thanks to every single person who made this possible in one way or another,” the designer’s statement finished. “It was a privilege and an honour to share my journey, and my dreams, with you.”

According to the house, a new creative director will be announced soon. Stay tuned.
