THE BLACK BOOK
This month’s names, numbers, events and addresses of note
Taking the athleisure trend to new heights, Saint Laurent unveiled these stiletto- skates last month, and promptly lent us a pair. Priced at Dh6,850, with a limited number available from Level Shoes and Mall of the Emirates, the stilettoskates should probably be seen more as a collector’s item than a bona fide sartorial choice, although the wheels do not move, so they could, technically, be worn on a night out by the very brave. They made a star turn in this month’s fashion editorial, Own the Streets, which was shot in Beirut. Keeping things old- school, Lebanese photographer Bachar Srour captured the images on film, rather than a digital camera, infusing them with a sense of so ness and nostalgia.
