Valentino heading into India

Italian fashion house Valentino is about to enter India, joining a growing list of luxury brands changing their focus to a buoyant retail scene far from the slowing Chinese economy.

Valentino is reportedly dealing with IDFS Tradings and is also in talks with DLF Luxury Retail.

Over the past few months, French luxury leather-goods maker Longchamp, Italian bespoke menswear brand Isaia and Swiss watch brand Bovet have been launched in India.

One commentator says the possibilities of an omni-channel strategy is among factors attracting top brands to India.
