Another great move by the Creative Director of Maison Valentino Pierpaolo Piccioli who took over the Ginza Six store, creating the world of Valentino TKY, in collaboration with Sarah Andelman. It is a space where art, music, future visions and tradition live and pulse together featuring an array of fashion and art.
TKY has invited different artists and brands to envision new ways to reinterpret tradition paying a homage to the Japanese’s long history of many diverse practices and honoring the exciting and exceptional transformation of Japanese society in the course of the last century.
With TKY Concept Store in Ginza Six, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Valentino embark in a fascinating task merging together two Japanese concepts: the “ma”, the invisible space, and the wabi-sabi, the idea of transience and imperfection with Italian unity of space and classical “Beauty”, Bellezza.
The different chapter and capsules created at the TKY concept store will explore the creativity and the craftsmanship of ancient Japanese practices through the input of Valentino’s vision.
