2016 might be the year street art fully infiltrated the luxury fashion house. Off the heels of Gucci’s graffiti-heavy collaboration with Gucci Ghost, Valentino is teaming up with Roman street artist SOLO to present a live-in-store visual experience exclusively at their Milan, Rome, and New York flagships.

In celebration of the brand’s latest capsule collection — a Wonder Woman–inspired string of items dedicated to the strength and mental dexterity of women — SOLO will create a reinterpretation of the DC comic superhero icon unique to each city hosting the artwork. While you can shop the Wonder Woman capsule through the summer, the live performance will only run from today through April 22 at their Fifth Avenue flagship.
