Publisher's description: This lavish tribute to Valentino's accessories line is exceptionally timely: since the longtime accessories team, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, took over as art directors for Valentino back in 2008, the house has experienced record-breaking success and received international acclaim. Known for their daring approach to redefining femininity, Chiuri and Piccioli's continuance of accessories design has only magnified the line's popularity. Equally important is Chiuri and Piccioli's transformation of traditional Italian handcraftsmanship into a new international barometer of elegance and design. By infusing the highest quality materials and crafts with streetwise attitude, their accessories have become some of the most coveted items in the fashion world. Valentino: Accessories showcases commissioned images and artworks by various well-known artists (David Bailey, Duane Michals, and Luisa Lambri, among others) of more than 300 of Valentino's most well-known accessory designs. Along with an insightful essay by the art curator Francesco Bonami, this work presents a rich volume in celebration of Valentino's exquisitely designed collections. This book is perfect for devotees of fashion, style, photography, and glamour, as well as anyone who understands that a Valentino handbag or heels, even when paired with jeans, is statement-worthy.
