RED VALENTINO CREATES EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT FOR CHELSEA IN BLOOM

Red Valentino Chelsea In Bloom T-shirt by Mateo Giuntini

Embrace the wild and untamed spirit of this year’s Chelsea in Bloom at Red Valentino with an exclusive T-shirt designed in collaboration with Italian artist Matteo Giuntini, known for his eclectic approach to art, employing painting, sculpture and drawing in his multimedia works that are a mix of stories, dreams and fanciful characters. His art is the resulting combination of irony with melancholy, astonishment with memory.

Available exclusively at the Sloane Street boutique for £115, a limited edition of just 85 Tees featuring a stylised tiger entangled within the stems of two giant flowers, it is a striking and covetable nod to this year’s Chelsea In Bloom theme, ‘Floral Safari’, which Red Valentino will be embracing during the annual floral art competition from May 22nd.

Get ready for a foray into the jungle when you step into the brand’s flagship shore, as floral designer Neeva Jay will be transforming the sleek space into a sophisticated verdant jungle with entangled vines growing out of a wild grass and moss undergrowth, while lush Monstera, Livistonia, stunning Leucadendron, magical Philodendron and Banana plants will provide a canopy trail across a wooden structure to dramatic effect.

Intrepid explorers will discover, among the spring/summer 2017 collection from creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, a majestic grass tiger, a symbol of wealth and wild power and synonym of courage, vitality and strength, evoking the idea of royalty, power and majesty.

And, on Thursday May 25th, Giuntini will be in store between 12pm and 8pm, when you can meet him, enjoy a cocktail and explore the jungle as you shop the spring collection and discover the new pre-fall/winter 2017-18 collection, which features its fair share of florals, designed for a passionate and eccentric girl.
