Odiney created WNRS in November 2018. The intimate question game immediately gained a following. During the pandemic particularly, WNRS rose to great popularity, with their official Instagram currently boasting over four million followers. As the world comes back together, and in-person gatherings become the new normal once again, the WNRS game is even more relevant, reminding us to continue to connect with each other.

The Valentino collaboration with WNRS debuts a special collaboration deck design donning the V Logo Signature. This deck is available starting July 28th exclusively at Valentino Episode SoHo.

“The Valentino event and collaboration is a dream come true. I’m still processing it all. When I first saw the store taken over by WNRS, it had me in tears,” Odiney said. “It’s been so emotional seeing the idea come to life with the most amazing team and such an honor to get to create more meaningful connections with Valentino.”
