Fab Read: Valentino, Themes and Variations


While the fate of the brand is rocky, we still can admire Valentino's 47 years of artistry in Valentino: Themes and Variations ($47) written by famous Louvre curator, Pamela Golbin.

"I have always considered my work as one of a writer. Over the years I wrote only one story, the one of my style, where each collection represents a single chapter, with all of its emotions, ideas, and motifs. The looks may change with every chapter, but the main characters are the same, as are the people and things that inspire me," said Valentino.

This magnificent book highlights Valentino's expertise in volume, texture, pleats, and flowers throughout his career. Also included are exclusive backstage images from Valentino's last collection in Paris, designs that date back half a century, and commentary from the designer himself. A definite must-have for every Valentino lovah.
