“I’m very interested in design and the creative elements of a campaign, so it was quite cool to work with a brand like ARNETTE,” states ZAYN. “The team has been really open and receptive to my ideas and has been a great partner.”
ZAYN’s expressive vision plays out like a multi-level videogame, creating a surreal escape that leaves the city in the dust of a neon light storm. From graffiti art to retro race heroes, this creative collaboration captures an awakening of creative minds. Upbeat, fun, and Collaboration Out Now unexpected, the mood of the collection shifts from vaporwave visuals to retro in a flash, a note of 90s nostalgia and loads of contemporary attitude. “The whole retro vibe of the campaign is sick,” States ZAYN.
