6. BCBGMAXAZRIA SS15 DREAMY COLLECTIONS
For Spring 2015, the BCBGMAXAZRIA runway collection combines timeless elegance with nonchalantly bohemian silhouettes. Tapestry and abstract floral prints are inspired by the Color Reform concept, blending a sun-bleached softness and richness that creates a chromatic experience. Classic, enduring fabrications are modernized and softened for comfortable chic. Fluid drape dresses and layered cascades of sheer fabrics are offset by structured and quilted pieces. Distinctive, with a touch of ethereal, the collection embodies her carefree spirit creating a lasting impression.
7. H&M CONSCIOUS COLLECTION 8. BUMC MEDIA PRESS CONFERENCE AND LUNCH 9. LACY AND SEE-THROUGH DETAILS EMBELLISHED VALENTINE’S DAY FROM INTIMISSIMI
H&M’S new Conscious Exclusive collection shows what can be done with more sustainable materials, using fabrics such as hemp, organic linen and organic leather to create pieces of great individual style. The collection, worn exclusively by actress and humanitarian Olivia Wilde in the campaign, will be available in around 200 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online, from April 16. As an annual tradition, BUMC, the exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus in Lebanon, organized a gathering with the elite of press and media personalities in one of its showrooms at Toyota-lexus City in Hazmieh. Several events characterized this year’s gathering, such as the unveiling of the all-new 2015 Toyota Camry in the Lebanese market, considered one of the most successful midsized cars in the world. However, the second event was the completion of Toyota’s worldrenowned small segment lineup featuring the Yaris hatchback, Yaris sedan and Corolla that are experiencing smashing success within the Lebanese market. The Intimissimi collection takes a playful approach to classically seductive lingerie, setting soft fabrics off with clean-cut, geometric lines, such as those that shape triangle bras with voile and lace inserts, pointed shoulders and tatted edges, taken up again on the high-waist knickers with rhinestone stud detail. Lace is the star feature even on the sleeveless floral bodysuit, which can be kept hidden or glimpsed underneath, with a jewel belt and a figure-hugging shape synonymous with wearable transparency.
10. AN ITALIAN HEART BEATS IN THE HEART OF BEIRUT: HARRY’S BAR!
Harry’s Bar is situated in the heart of Beirut, the cosmopolitan city par excellence. This upscale Italian restaurant is situated a short distance from the business district and the hubs that animate the city’s nightlife. The setting is classic Venetian with a touch of deco to break the pattern in bronze marble with olive green leather. Situated in the lounge area, the glossy bar is a wonderful centerpiece, where guests can start their gastronomic experience with a Bellini – a delicious blend of peach puree and Prosecco which was invented sometime between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, the founder of Harry’s Bar.
