UniqueForm(s) is an exclusive digital experience from luxury retailer SSENSE and legendary fashion house Valentino — a virtual hotel hosting music and conversation from record-breaking R&B artist Summer Walker, DJ Louise Chen, and musician Nick Hakim, as well as on-demand viewings of Valentino’s FW20 collection and latest runway show.
Valentino Creative Director, Pierpaolo Piccioli explains, “For the UniqueForm(s) collection, SSENSE brought unique talents in an interactive space to discover the new collection. A dialogue between individuals, to understand diverse dimensions, and create a sort of conversation bringing different worlds together.”
Singer-songwriter Summer Walker, whose debut album stands as the biggest streaming debut of any female R&B artist ever, is the first to feature of the three ambassadors. In the form of a fashion editorial, Walker models some of the collection’s most intricate leather pieces. Next in the series, Paris-based DJ Louise Chen and singer Nick Hakim explore the power of music as a tool of communication by taking a virtual trip to the record store. Follow their conversation and selections as they speak candidly about the role music plays in their lives.
With two more chapters of the project set to drop over the coming days, now’s the perfect time to catch up on what’s happened so far while soaking up glimpses of Valentino’s Fall/Winter 2020 runway show. From the lobby to a private speakeasy, explore Valentino’s virtual rooms below.
