Friends of Valentino, including Emma Roberts, Candance Bushnell, Ashley Rous, Coco Bassey, Charlotte Groeneveld, and Sarah Hoover celebrated the Valentino Escape 2023 capsule collection at the home of Maria Fishel and Ken Fishel in Bridgehampton. Guests were transported to the Italian Riviera with the classic red and white sunbeds, umbrellas, lemon trees and a beach cabin. Before the seated lunch in the backyard, guests sipped cocktails by the pool and shopped the collection.

Valentino Escape 2023 is an invitation to wander through the archives and encounter emblematic pieces, repurposed for today. Inspired by the joy of discovery, each look is a means to explore with boundless vision. Starting out the offering, the Valentino Animalier makes an all-over nod to the power of animal print. For a slightly darker dialogue, the Escape 2023 collection looks to its Valentino Panther print. Valentino envisions a hypnotic take on a Maison classic. Donning the brand’s name in an entrancing circular design, the Valentino Loop print features a spectrum of vibrant hues. Atop weightless caftans, breathable mini dresses and beachwear, the Valentino Animalier, Loop and Panther prints elevate easy vacation looks into memorable moments.

About Valentino:

The house of Valentino is based in the heart of Rome, the Eternal City, and expresses a point of view on the contemporary world using history as a playground and the Atelier as a place that produces both beauty and thought. The story began in 1960. 2016 marks a new beginning, under the Creative Direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli. A new set of values, that are both of the moment and faithful to its heritage, are created: grace and delicacy, both as an attitude and as a silhouette; a celebration of individuality; emotional beauty; the blending and merging of different languages. Style is essential and impalpable. The idea of contemporary humanism leads a creative quest that revolves around the personality of the wearer. Vision, products, retail spaces share the same traits: from the one-of-a-kind Haute Couture creations to women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories (Valentino Garavani), from eyewear to fragrances to the boutiques, Valentino is synonymous of elegance, pureness, craftsmanship, uniqueness.
