The opening of the Italian exhibition pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale was marked by a grand party prepared by the creative director of the Italian fashion house Valentino, Pierpaolo Piccioli. When Piccioli presented his latest Valentino collection at Paris Fashion Week, the crowd fell in love with the hot pink Pink PP, designed specifically for Valentino Fall/Winter 22-23 in collaboration with Pantone. Since then, this color has become a signature color for the fashion house. That's why many of the guests at the recent party to celebrate the opening of the Italian exhibition pavilion at the 59th Venice Biennale dressed in this color.
Piccioli's daring and slightly mocking pink hue is now associated with the Valentino brand, and the Italian house itself maintains its close connection with art and supports Gian Maria Tosatti's painting "The History of the Night and the Fate of Comets" at the Biennale. The work is a large installation offering to take a look at the current state of mankind and the prospects for its development. Biennale President Roberto Cicutto defined this as a "message of hope" so much needed in the difficult times we live in.
Among the guests of the private Valentino dinner at Tese di San Cristoforo were Vanity Fair director Simone Marchetti, Pinar Sabanci, gallery owner Destiny Ross-Sutton, writer and artist Douglas Copeland, star couple Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunaki, actress Kiernan Shipka, director Christian Coppola, stylist and influencer Gilda Ambrosio, fashion blogger Susie Lau Bubble.
The Venice Biennale will run in 2022 from 23 April to 27 November.
