Early fall, in the thick of Milan Fashion Week, the Vogue Arabia team—led by Fashion Director Daniela Agnelli—flew to Beirut to shoot the first film to commemorate its digital launch. Directed by Elisa Sednaoui and filmed by Director of Photography Xavier Arias, the beautiful short takes place in Mr. Saab’s sprawling residence, gardens, and the surrounding city of Beirut. “It was an unforgettable experience to put together such a dream team,” says Agnelli. “Everyone put their heart into this film.”
