Italian design and flair
VALENTINO by Mario Valentino was founded in 1952 Naples, Italy. The first products made under the Valentino name date back to the early 20th Century when Mario’s father Vincenzo was crafting made to measure shoes for, amongst others, the King of Italy. Mario Valentino continued the family tradition and created a global fashion house. Mario is the inventor of the stiletto heel and his own celebrity customers included Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Naomi Campbell and Maria Callas. Mario Valentino’s range of handbags was launched in 2000 and have fast become a best selling brand in the European handbag market, recognised for their unique combination of Italian design and flair at an affordable price. Launching in the UK for the first time in 2017 the brand has quickly taken a very strong positioning within the market as well as a loyal following.
