The Browns' Edit of Valentino emanates the romantic and timeless elegance of the world-renowned fashion designer's Ready-to-Wear and Resort collections. Crowned as ‘The Sheik of Chic’, Valentino Garavani displayed an early interest in fashion and relocated to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts and the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Upon return to Rome, Valentino set up his own label and debuted his first couture collection in 1962 which garnered attention from the likes of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn. Adored by notable socialists, aristocrats and celebrities, the Italian mastermind spent the following decades perfecting his craft and becoming a true innovator of the feminine form, for which he was awarded a French Legion of Honor medal in 2006. Since retiring from the iconic fashion house, the time-honoured craftsmanship and artisan techniques discovered by Valentino live on through the current creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.
