Emirates teams up with Nadine Kanso to create the ‘Bil Arabi for Emirates’ Collection
Emirates has announced a collaboration on an exclusive product line with renowned Dubai-based designer Nadine Kanso. The Bil Arabi for Emirates Collection uses Arabic calligraphy as a focal point in its design to celebrate the UAE’s Flag Day and National Day festivities on 3 November and 2 December. Bil Arabi literally translates to “in Arabic”.
The collection consists of a porcelain mug, a decorative plate, a pouch, a notepad and stylish tshirts for both men and women. All items in the collection are adorned with the word “El
Emarat”, which means The Emirates, in gold, stylised Arabic writing. The calligraphy based design takes influence from a contemporary interpretation of Arabic letters and also takes inspiration from “calligraffiti” designs emerging across the Gulf and Middle East.
"My brand prides itself on paying tribute to Arabic heritage. A huge place I draw inspiration from is the Arabic lettering itself. The curves of the letters are so graceful and the gold lettering really enhances that beauty,” said Nadine Kanso.
The Bil Arabi for Emirates Collection is available at Emirates Official Stores across Dubai as well as on online at emirates.store.
