MARKING this festive season with a new collaboration, Maison Valentino has decided to partner with luxury department store Harrods. As the holiday season approaches, the two affluent brands are gearing up to offer a unique shopping experience.
The brands will open a variety of in-store spaces and boutiques, providing shoppers with an opportunity to browse through a vast collection of exquisite pieces for the holiday period.
Furthermore, the iconic store – and the Harrods nine-metre tall Christmas tree – will be decked out in Valentino Pink PP adornments and decorations.
Valentino x Harrods
Having partnered with Dior for last year’s Christmas, it comes as no surprise that Harrods and Maison Valentino have joined forces for 2023. Having worked together on various projects in-store, the Italian luxury brand has a strong relationship with the Knightsbridge retailer.
In September, the Maison opened a temporary space within the department store, which will now re-open in mid-December on an even larger scale. Covering an impressive 500 square meter area, a temporary womens ready-to-wear boutique will be unveiled. The space will reference architectural movements of the past which allude to the Maison’s Roman history.

In order to further its reach, Valentino is also working with Harrods on a takeover in China. Centred around Cha House – located in Shanghai – a Valentino Christmas tree will make an appearance within the eclectic city. Meanwhile, an exclusive Valentino x Harrods afternoon tea set will be available to purchase from November 9th to January 4th.
