the 170 square meter REDvalentino store presents a brass and glass façade to the passing street, inviting customers inside to discover the space. internally, india mahdavi sought to create a dream-like atmosphere with striking contrasts, yet a harmonious overall mood. the sinuous lines of individual elements blend with the collections on display, animating the versatile and multiform space, which is primarily composed of three colors: white, pink, and ochre.

the initial idea, together with india, was to create an intimate and emotional space,’ says REDvalentino creative director pierpaolo piccioli. ‘a meeting place that favors dialogue, a virtual and real exchange of ideas. london is a dynamic, cosmopolitan and unique metropolis. it is important for me to have a REDvalentino store in this universe-city, center of constant evolution and multicultural activity.’

my style is polyglot, polychrome, cross-cultured,’ explains architect and designer india mahdavi. ‘color is fundamental in my work, so is texture. I use texture like color, and I use color to bring light. being creative starts with imagination, is fed by inspiration, and ends with a story. when I met pierpaolo, we really had a great connection – he was part of the inspiration and together we created a dream.’
