Welcome to my third season of Creative Conversations with Suzy Menkes. This week I am joined by Giancarlo Giammetti, Honorary President of the Valentino Fashion House. Giancarlo has been so much more than a business partner, who shares with Valentino a passion for big boats, high mountains and creating the House of Valentino, which has earned a place in fashion history. The hyper-cultured Giammetti, who first studied architecture, has brought a sleek elegance to his various homes, where he has collected art and explored modern and contemporary work. Now that the Valentino company has an independent life, Giancarlo can look back at his many achievements, including building both a mighty business and a personal Valentino “family”.
