Sir Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion, takes the stage as Valentino’s first menswear DI.VAs for the new Men’s Pink PP ad campaign. The word stands for “DI.fferent VA.lues = DIVAS,” we’re told. With this, Piccioli continues on his conscious and progressive path of creating culture by establishing an authentic relationship with DI.VAs and becoming a real cultural comeback. From cinema, music, literature to sports, each DI.VAs plays a key role in upholding the new vision of winning diversity through association. Different faces that have the modern mantra of empathy and connection as a common thread.

The monochrome collection is the result of research and a need driven by the desire to create an enduring hue that communicates Valentino’s heritage through a modern lens. Where the Maestro used his iconic Valentino Red, Piccioli gives us a bright shade of pink.
