Valentino isn’t only for fashion lovers. The Italian luxury fashion house has announced the launch of the Valentino Collezione Milano Writers Campaign.

Pierpaolo Piccioli, the brand’s Creative Director, has gathered a group of world-renowned authors and poets to create text-only image campaigns in order to challenge the way fashion is presented to the world. Writers involved in the project include Donna Tartt, Elif Shafak, Janet Mock, Lisa Taddeo, Matthew Lopez, Ocean Vuong, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Fatima Farheen Mirza, and Raven Leilani. Each one has written their own love letters, one-liners, and flash fiction.

The Valentino campaign will also expand to include photography, music, and film. Take a peek below for the latest literary offerings from some of your favorite writers.
