From the start, its founder, Valentino Garavani, has worked by one simple precept: “I know what women want,” he once said. “They want to be beautiful.” The brand is known for it's creation of beautifully crafted clothes that encapsulate the style and sophistication of Italian glamour. Founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani, success came easily to the handsome young designer. His dresses were clean and modern, yet unabashedly feminine- with bows, flowers, ruffles, lace, embroideries- always in the finest fabrics, always molto elegante. His ability to create beautiful clothes has helped establish him as firm favourite among the celebrity crowd. Larizia stocks the latest Valentino footwear and bags.
