VALENTINO BEAUTY MAKEUP LAUNCH
CREATE YOUR OWN BEAUTY DREAM
Beauty and fashion are in a constant and symbiotic evolution. The work we are doing in Valentino is guided by the values we trust in, we moved from an aesthetic built on exclusivity to an inclusive one, we grew from a two-dimensional vision of beauty to a three dimensional one, where emotions, dreams, and individuality are as important, if not more, as any other feature. Beauty is directly connected to the intensity of our feelings, the more we love, the more we are connected to our true self, the more it shows and glows on the outside. Valentino beauty is for the dreamers.”
COUTURE DREAM, MAKE IT YOURS
Time, heritage, rituals, grace. The culture of Couture, a celebration of the individual and identity. Values of equality and diversity for a new generation that has no boundaries and is open to possibilities. Haute Couture is a culture of craftsmanship, passion and love. The vision of beauty of the Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, is conveyed in the first make-up collection: a daring, expressive and inclusive attitude. The versatile range is an array of blazing hues – an ode to a key pillar of the Couture fashion house; exquisite textures and high-performance formulas, it is an invitation to create your own beauty dream. An ode to self-expression that not only celebrates the extraordinary in the everyday, it celebrates the extraordinary in each individual.
VALENTINO & COLORS
Bringing together the Valentino heritage with an extraordinary and innovative blend of couture and street culture, Pierpaolo Piccioli has brought a new colorful perspective to Valentino. A harmonious color palette, that recalls the Valentino Collections, that ranges from black to peridot greens to corals, from rich blues to bitter yellows to vibrant pink. This mastery of color, along with Valentino’s runway makeup legitimises Valentino’s space in the world of makeup.
VALENTINO & TEXTURES
Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli’s approach is inspired by proportion and volumes, magnificent silhouettes full of grace. A similar approach, using unique expertise and technical skill, has been transplanted in all the textures across the color collection. This is thanks to the ingenious Light-LastingTM technology. By infusing it into each product, Valentino’s sensorial, innovative formulations are light to the point of weightlessness, breathable, long lasting and comfortable to wear.
“I had this idea of lightness and movement, but the dress I had seen in photos required layers and layers of tulle to make it so huge… What I want to do is subtract all this weight…”
VALENTINO & DESIGN
Maison Valentino speaks in red, a color that is a language and that demonstrates its identity. A multifaceted universe, red is made up of tones and registers. An emotional and sentimental code, it contains infinite voices. Feminine, plural. The temperature of infinite personalities. An embracing selection of possibilities. A unique accent: passionate, sensual, graceful. Poetic and transversal. Essential. Complete. Contradictory: grandiose and severe, opulent and light, firm and fluid. A chromatic myriad in which one finds its own individuality. Primary and primordial. Decisive as a statement, neutral as a non color. Timeless. Bold and fine. Valentino. ‘Valentino Rosso’ is the color chosen by Pierpaolo Piccioli as a common denominator through all the cosmetics range. The packaging conveys the concept of a fashion accessory in the realm of beauty. The Valentino VLogo signature pays homage to the Maison: “V”, a sound that becomes a shape, a symbol, a true icon. A microcosm of lines and volumes, full and empty. A calling and a beginning. Part of the whole and linguistic atom from which to develop a universe of values. The versatility of each product – multi-use, multi finishes – speaks to the freedom of expression and individuality that lies at the core of the brand. In line with Valentino’s commitment to responsible consumption, lipsticks and compacts are fully refillable.
VALENTINO & ARTISTRY
Working closely with Raoul Alejandre, the boundary pushing L.A. based make-up artist, the entire color cosmetics line has been meticulously created to embody the concept of “create your beauty dream”. The Triple Technique application – meaning many of the beautifully crafted pieces can be used in three different ways – where every individual can celebrate the power of elevated artistry whilst creating their own beauty dream.
IN PIERPAOLO PICCIOLI EYE
The shooting of the makeup advertising campaign, is a personal narrative between the Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli together with 16 eclectic talents, a diverse range of faces and personalities, conveying a unique energy. Pierpaolo Piccioli continues his quest within gender neutrality and on the humanity of individuals, highlighting their feelings and emotions, despite their gender or age. The Creative Director has personally narrated his vision through his eyes by gathering all the nuances and emotions of the models with no filter. Each individual wears the make up in a way that is reflective of their personalities, each individual tells a different story, and represents an antidote to the archaic constructs and ideals of beauty, and each individual wears colorful couture with ease and unrestraint. The glorious display of uniqueness, individuality and street culture is the embodiment of the beauty dream. It is where Valentino’s heritage meets not simply the modernity of the present day but beauty of the future.
Embodying both style and substance, Rosso Valentino is set to reinvent the modern lipstick category. Built from an extensive color palette of 50 shades going from reds (tomato red, pinky reds, browny reds) to a gallery of pinks and plums, to modern nudes – one with a wholly inclusive slant – to luminous oranges and rich corals, and statement-making purple and blue. The lip colors of dreams. Created using the Roma-Light ComplexTM, a color booster that ensures luminosity and intensity, Rosso Valentino highlights a skill and grasp concerning the nuances of undertones. It delivers striking color in one stroke. There are two impressive technology-driven textures. A new generation satin with luxurious glide and intense pay off, this is a liquid lipstick encapsulated in a stick. Its matte counterpart, a soft creamy velvet matte with a blurred finish, is infused with mattifiers and gliding oils ensuring a sublime comfort level rare in traditional mattes, the intense color is non-fading and stays true. Colors are infused with more light to increase their luminosity and intensity. This specific light adds flattering and radiant reflection power. Crafted with color boosting pearls, this unique technology enhances the luminosity and radiance of each shade by refracting back maximum light. The first type of pearl is a radiant pearl. Chosen among 500 pearls, it is multi-layered, catching the light and reflecting it back softly, without giving a shiny effect. In the satin formula, these radiant pearls merge with colored pearls. The soft-matte formula focuses on blurring the light. To do so the Roma-Light ComplexTM blends radiant and blurred pearls, that capture light and diffuse it without fading its color. Rosso Valentino exterior has been designed with intention. The unique V shaped bullet is specifically designed for precision of application. And is fully refillable. This is a nod to Valentino’s commitment to the future and the celebration of individuality, with the possibility of changing color, consciously. With patented formulas, an extensive, fully inclusive range of shades and design principles that go beyond the aesthetic, Rosso Valentino marks a generation of lipstick for anyone and everyone who dreams of beauty.
