Before her departure for Christian Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri, co-creative director along with Pierpaolo Piccioli, was tasked in 2003 with designing a diffusion line. Known as Red Valentino, this became a softer and younger version of Valentino, it’s younger, more innocent sister so to speak.
More carefree and exuberant as compared to Valentino’s heavy emphasis on romanticism with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll courtesy of the rockstuds, Red is known to be more feminine and demure while still retaining the brand’s edgy, chic attitude.
For their Pre-Fall collection this season, Red Valentino’s femininity was focused on being different. With dusty pink palettes and crochet floral motifs seen on shift dresses and midi skirts, this collection seemed perfect for a picnic date. Thus inspired, we’ve put together five outfits perfect for a day out with an elegantly packed lunch, whichever side of your personality you wish to be in that moment.
