Sandra Mansour Takes Us to Lebanon

  • Share

If Erdem and Valentino had a baby, it would be Swiss-born, Lebanon-based designer Sandra Mansour. Her fashion is modern, ethereal–easily paired with the drama of cinema. Which brings us to this. Written and directed by Mounia Akl, 11 Minutes perfects the idea of the fashion film, a format that so often misses its mark. Instead of using heavy, undeveloped narratives, Akl leans more heavily on the original purpose of glossy mag photography. Frames are filled with beauty and quirk. Models come to life in imaginative ways. It’s clever and transportive–and we advise you take the time to watch.
