Irresistible Valentino

When investing in a new pair of shoes or the latest handbag, the EW team always considers the functionality (once we’re done drooling over the finer features of the design).

A smart purchase is a timeless purchase, and one way to guarantee you’ve made the right choice is to picture your top pick with almost every outfit in your wardrobe.

Ask yourself these key questions: Can it take you from day to night? Are you actually able to walk in those heels? Does the bag fulfil all your needs and preference of wear?

Mindful investments can remain in your repertoire for years to come, and one brand that always makes it into the ‘keep forever’ edit is Valentino.

The luxury house has unveiled a fabulous collection of accessories, exclusively for the Middle East. Expect statement bags and eye-catching shoes, all made from the finest exotic leathers. See all the pieces here.

To mark this launch, the brand recruited Dubai-based photographer Abdulla Elmaz to create a series of magical animations that showcase these dazzling pieces in a whole new way.
