Like the other pieces in the 2014 limited edition collection celebrating the opening of Valentino’s David Chipperfield designed Fifth Ave flagship, this lacquered wood tray –number 17 of 100–features Fornasetti’s classic black and white drawings and Valentino’s then new camouflage pattern. The collection debuted as an installation at The Whitney Museum [still in the Breuer-designed building on Madison] accompanying Valentino’s Sala Blanca 945 haute-couture show. A rare collector’s item for lovers of fashion collaborations, Valentino, and Fornasetti alike.
