Valentino taps Dubai-based artist Abdulla Elmaz for achingly cool animations
Valentino's SuperVee handbag is currently sitting centre stage at Level Shoes as its pop-up reopened once the malls opened its doors last week. Now, the coveted handbag is seen in a new light where surrealism meets the classical codes of Valentino.
The maison has tapped Dubai-based photographer and art director, Abdulla Elmaz, to create captivating animations that highlight the SuperVee bag — a part of the maison's Spring/Summer '20 collection — as well as other key styles.
The surreal animations have been inspired by florals and the idea of rebirth as Elmaz brought craftsmanship and imagination behind each piece.
