Virtual Valentino or Reality Valentino?

"Everyone can reach the dresses with a simple click." Valentino

I don't know about you but as excited I am to look through the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, I am a greedy girl and still desire the real thing to the virtual thing.  Like this for example:

"This iconic crepe dress in that pure, clear red that became Valentino's signature was modeled for the designer by the socialite Princess Luciana Pignatelli, and Henry Clark photographed it for Vogue.  It is such a significant piece that when Valentino held his 2007 retrospective at the Ara Pacis, is was isolated in its own glass cube on the concourse leading into the museum." Hamish Bowles

It was isolated people in its own cube.  Now, you can see it in the virtual museum.

Or you can look at the image in Vogue of Veruschka wearing the same red dress (with the to die for feathered coat...)

Or you can buy a very similar version from the 1970s at RARE vintage.  Valentino Couture by the way.  And you can purchase it virtually online or buy it at our store on 57th Street.  Ain't nothing like the real thing babies and you can start your own mini Valentino museum!

Iconic 1970s pure red silk Valentino Couture gown.  Size 4.

You can see Hamish Bowles' top picks from the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum here.
