History of Mens Valentino Shoes
Perhaps the most legendary and most revered name in the modern history of the Italian fashion industry, Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani – better known throughout the world as Valentino – founded his own fashion house way back in 1960. He quickly gathered acclaim for his clothing collections and even developed his own signature shade known universally as ‘Valentino Red’. By the end of the decade, he’d become the only designer of choice for true VIP stars and royalty, going on to create custom outfits for the likes of Sophia Lauren, Elisabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy, Jennifer Lopez, and Princess Madeleine of Sweden. The Valentino name is now a global empire, running several main lines including Valentino, Valentino Garavani and R.E.D Valentino aimed at a younger and more urban audience. Receiving a wealth of honors and accolades over the triumphant decades, Valentino is now of the most successful and most respected designers of all time.
