Giambattista Valli Takes Harrods, With a Latest Pop-up and

VIVA VALLI: Giambattista Valli is the newest luxury name to land at Harrods, with a pop-up shop on the primary floor that’s set to run until May 28. It offers a choice of the designer’s resort 2023 collection, together with Valli’s pink Paglia di Vienna capsule, which is exclusive to the shop.

The designer celebrated the opening with a dinner on Harrods’ balcony — which was covered as a consequence of the rainstorms plaguing London. Guests including Isabel and Ivy Getty; “Bridgerton” actress Charithra Chandran; Emma Weymouth, and Ikram Abdi sat at a mile-long table dotted with pomegranates and small lamps with matching red shades.

It was a homecoming for Valli, whose label sold at Harrods earlier in his profession, and his pop-up shares a floor with other international designer brands including Prada, Celine and Saint Laurent.

“It’s back to Harrods, celebrating on the historic balcony with a part of my U.K. Valli family. It’s been an actual thrill,” said the designer, who was wearing black — and his signature pearls — for the evening.

Those pearls adorned the table, too, with guests sipping Giambattista Valli vino from Feudi del Pisciotto. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria red is an element of a set made for top fashion labels, and Valli designed the bottle’s black label with a single string of graduated white pearls.

Dinner included burrata, sea bass and mushroom risotto followed by crème brulée, crumble and sorbet. The dinner was the newest in a string of Valli events within the U.S. and Europe, which kicked off with a dinner at Caviar Kaspia on Melrose Place in Los Angeles last October, before the restaurant officially opened.

Harrods is one among Valli’s many projects and he has a busy few months ahead. He’s opening a recent showroom near Place de l’Opéra in Paris, and can stage his summer 2024 couture show in early July.
