When you’re next zipping along Jumeirah Beach Road keep your eyes peeled for the hot new contender in Dubai’s shopping scene: a sleek new glass-encased structure taking up a prime location in Jumeirah 3. When we visited Sunset Mall last month, only about 10 stores were open, but when it’s completely finished, it’s destined to be the new hotspot for high-spending Jumeirah Janes and Marina-based residents. What’s more, it will also house Provedore, Milk & Honey’s gourmet deli and eatery. Here, we give you a sneak preview of some of the stores currently open.

USP: This is the Dubai-based boutique’s second outlet (the first is in Wafi). The spacious store has a boudoir feel, with details such as corsets and feather plumes making for interesting decor.
Why go? It stocks a well-rounded mix of local and international designers, such as Romance Was Born, Camilla and Marc, Sass & Bide and Stella & Jamie, as well as quirky accessories such as shark-tooth chains and handbags with tassel detailing. You’ll also find plenty of jeans in new-season colours, such as racing green and burgundy.
Where? Ground floor, Sunset Mall (04 380 9024).
