Naomi Chadderton on Beyonce's collection, what we love and local jewellery
Ivy Park Hits Namshi!
You don’t have to brave The Dubai Mall to shop Beyoncé’s latest athleisure line, now that my fave one-stop-shop Namshi is stocking it online! Stock up on Bey’s emblazoned jumpers, leggings, tees and shorts that will make going to the gym that much more enjoyable. INFO: Namshi.com
Clarks’ Second Collaboration with V&A
I love fashion that has a bit of heritage behind it, so it’s great news that British shoe brand Clarks and London’s V&A museum are rekindling their relationship again this season. A match made in style heaven, the retro new line is inspired by the swinging ’60s with block heels and Mary Janes emblazoned with bold V&A archive prints. Love! INFO: Available at Clarks The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates
Marc’s A-list Army
If you want to accessorize like a star this summer, you’ll need to save up for Marc Jacobs’ new Gotham City bag. Already spotted on the likes of Kate Mara, Sienna Miller and Meghan Markle, I love how the striped strap adds a playful, sporty appeal. INFO: Available at Marc Jacobs stores
Build Your Own Bomber!
I love anything custom-made, so this new concept from Sandra Mansour is right up my style street! Just pick your jacket colour (black or white) and then you can choose from a huge variety of badges, plus your initial, to be added to it. I’ll be opting for these four add-ons…INFO: Dhs5,455 for the jacket and Dhs147 each for the badges, available at Modaoperandi.com
When it comes to my shoe rack, the more masculine the better, so it’s safe to say I’m a huge fan of Miista. Just landed at Vesmasina.com, the East London-born brand is regularly spotted on street stylers the world over, so make them a regular in your day-to-night dressing. Check out my top three picks from the new collection… INFO: Available at Vesmasina.com
Why You Gotta Be So Rude?
A project born from Milan, London, LA and Miami (phew!), these new Rude tees have my name written all over them. The hip celeb brand has set up shop down at Boxpark with its simple yet cool collection that definitely doesn’t take itself too seriously. I’ll be teaming mine with a leather skirt for night and a pair of ripped skinnies at
the weekend. INFO: Rude, Boxpark
Launched by Sheikha Mariam Khalifa, MKS jewellery is a breath of fresh air for the region. Her first collection, Little Hearts, adds a playful punch to classic pieces crafted with precious metals and stones, all of which can be personalised. A perfect keepsake for someone special.
