The rumor on the net last week was that it was now official : Qatar is buying Valentino. The present Italian director of the fashion house Stefano Sassi stated that he was very happy about this event for the brand. Not to worry, the stylists Maria Grazia et Pierpaolo Piccioli will continue to design the collections. The emirate that already owns shares in the LVMH group, continues its shopping and has now gifted itself with a couture brand! Gives us an urge to see the last runway show, don’t you think?
