Friday’s fashion editor brings you the latest news from the fashion and beauty world.
GET YOUR SWIMWEAR AT BEACH CITY
We’re fans of this local website, which stocks boutique and international brands, so you can expect to find something unique that you won’t get on the high street. I love the way each piece has been carefully selected for its quirky or unusual design. As well as swimwear you’ll also find beach-worthy clothes and accessories to have you looking super-stylish at the beach or pool party. Beachcity.ae.
Michael Kors has released a range of kaftans and handbags designed especially for the Middle East, featuring graphic prints and floral embellishment. The updates to the classic range of handbags are perfect for summer nights in the UAE. The collection, including the Selma satchel, Dh1,780, will be available in May.
S*UCE OPENS IN FOUR SEASONS
One of my favourite UAE boutiques has just opened its newest branch at the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah. The quirky luxury boutique chain – which already had five stores around Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi – will have a beachside feel to its latest store. Expect contemporary international beachwear and swimwear brands such as Rhode Resort and Sea NY. As well as a dedicated kids’ area (a first in any of S*uce’s mainline stores), there’s also a selection of sunglasses, including Hadid Eyewear (Gigi and Bella’s sister Alana’s new brand). The beauty and lifestyle section (again a first for S*uce) will stock skincare and make-up, like Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil. You’ll also find homeware and gifts such as candles and accessories.
COLOURFUL CA PSULE
I love Ted Baker’s new Cottoned On collection. The fashion-forward capsule collection includes strong shapes and architectural designs – something we wouldn’t usually expect to see from the high-street brand. The range comes in bright citrusy colours with exaggerated pleats, voluminous bell sleeves, flounced ruffled trims and coldshoulder cutouts. I love this direction for the brand! Available now at Ted Baker, The Dubai Mall.
