The Fornasetti x Valentino collaboration brings together both Italian houses' signature styles. From Fornasetti's signature doe-eyed faces to Valentino's green mixed camo, the collaboration screams Italian style. With pops of red, the collection mainly features the likes of green, black, white and gray. The collection includes plates, sunglasses, stools and serving trays. Known for the porcelain, Fornasetti optimizes on this in the Valentino collaboration.

Fornasetti x Valentino is inspired by the psychological concept of "parallel vision." This entails the ability of the brain to simultaneously process incoming stimuli of differing quality. The illustrations are by 20th century painter Piero Fornasetti and will debut at the Valentino Sala Bianca 945 event in New York on December 10. This limited-edition collection will only be sold at this New York location and will not be available online.
