The archives of Valentino

On December 5th, 2011, Valentino released an interactive digital archive that is free for anyone to download. You can walk through the virtual museum and explore the different rooms. I downloaded the archives when they came out several months ago but only recently found time to finish looking through them. The link to download it can be found here.

To me, the main attraction of the archives are the incredibly high-res virtual models of countless dresses. They are all stunning and an absolute delight to admire. One of the sections of the museum has them organized by colour and print. Also on display are sketches, photos, and videos that provide an in depth look at the details and processes behind the designs, as well as the legend surrounding the brand. Not only is it stunning to look at, but it's also an excellent introduction to Valentino's history Here is a trailer released prior to the launch of the digital museum:


Once again, it can be downloaded here. If you haven't taken a look at it yet, I highly recommend that you do. It is definitely worth the time to look through and I promise that you will find it breathtaking.

  5. Thanks for the reminder, I really need to have a proper look. Did you ever look at the Balenciaga site? It launched last year and had a really interesting section on archive designs and sketches etc but it was SOOO slow loading I gave up!
