“RED” stands for Romantic Eccentric Dress, and denotes Valentino’s signature colour. The REDValentino line takes the luxury label’s trademark sophistication and infuses it with cool and playful aesthetics.

Established in 2003, REDValentino focuses on young, urban consumers. The line’s pre-fall collection for 2021 combines Valentino’s feminine energy with edgy, modern elements. Standout pieces include a baby pink overcoat, ruffled tulle dresses and skirts, and denim staples reworked with flouncy layers.

Speaking to Vogue about the brand as a whole, designer Pierpaolo Piccioli said,

“To make Valentino’s codes and values pertinent for today, I want to keep a firm hold on its identity while shifting its signifiers, giving them a new attribution…

“It means giving a more human dimension to Valentino’s lexicon, less obviously glamorous,” Piccioli said. “Not because I condemn red carpet glamour, but because today, there’s the need of a new warmth, of more humanity. So you have to open up those codes, giving them new life and the freedom to speak through more personal, individual interpretations.”
