The interlocking ‘YSL’ logo is as recognizable as the Valentino ‘V’. The Parisian fashion house uses the same smooth leathers and classic silhouettes as Valentino.

The fundamental difference between the two is that Gucci produces more capsule collections than Valentino and their ‘GG’ monogram is more ‘in your face’ than Valentino’s simplistic ‘V’.

3. Versace – Italian luxury fashion company

Another contemporary of Valentino Garavani was Versace, which takes the Italian style and gives it a vibrant color scheme.
