The sphere of cooperation between online platforms and designers has expanded: the luxury online retailer Mytheresa has partnered with Valentino Garavani, the result was unveiled at the end of May this year. The exclusive buffalo leather "VRING" bag designed by Valentino's creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli comes in cream, pink and light blue. It is adorned by the logo monogram of the Italian brand in gold, as well as a red pendant.
So wonderfully timeless the bag itself, so futuristic the corresponding campaign, developed by the British artist Thomas Webb. The three-part concept includes a pop-up in Munich's Mytheresa store, a digital campaign and finally an intimate dinner on June 10, 2019 during Art Basel. In the latter, guests will be able to experience Webb's interactive "Infinity Mirror" installation up close.
The second element, the digital campaign, was launched at the same time as the bag. The video provides an insight into a world that may soon become reality. We see a young woman, the model Daberechi Ukoha-Kalu, who moves naturally with her augmented reality through her everyday life - and orders the exclusive "VRING", which she soon holds in her hands.
