Valentino Garavani’s VSLING top handle handbag captured by Abdulla Elmaz

At a time when we are all looking at the world from a different perspective, Maison Valentino has collaborated with Dubai-based surrealist photographer, Abdulla Elmaz, on the campaign for their limited-edition accessories collection.

Created by the house’s creative director, Pierpaulo Piccioli, the collection features four precious skin women’s handbags adorned with the V clasp and five women’s shoes (including the Vlogo 45 mules, slingback pumps and slides) in a spectrum of jewel tones and dusty pinks, and will be available only at Valentino Middle East boutiques.

The Valentino Garavani Limited Edition Accessories Collection 

Connecting with acclaimed photographer and art director Abdulla Elmaz, whose surrealist work has become his signature, the maison’s exotic skin collection is brought to life with a series of offbeat animations that bring a sense of magic and playfulness to each piece, using experimental lighting and artistic tools that highlight their unquestionable beauty in a make-believe world.

A strange and beautiful fusion of art and fashion, find the Valentino Garavani Limited Edition Accessories Collection at Valentino Boutiques in the Middle East;
