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.
