Members of the TOD team share their next stylish step
Time Out Dubai staff
Benita Adesuyan, Sport & Outdoor Editor ‘I can’t wait to hear British R&B singer Estelle’s new album Love and Happiness Vol 3. How Stella Got Her Groove Back. It’s been a while since the ‘American Boy’ singer had an album out and I’m dying to hear it.’
Jenny Hewett, Deputy Editor, Time Out Style ‘I’m ticking off one of my bucket list destinations with a road trip through Tibet. Kicking it at Everest base camp is certainly not the cushy beach holiday I often resort to, but just like style – life is all about taking risks. Plus, there’s something gnarly about visiting the land of the Dalai Lama, a hipster in his own right.’
Andy Sherwood, Editor, Time Out Style ‘I’m after some trainers and these yellow Adidas beauties, which go by the name of McNasty Lo, are right up my street. www.middle-east.adidas.com
Holly Sands, Features Editor ‘I can’t get enough of the up-cycled furniture pieces by Dubai-based artist Lynne Merry under her label Sticky Things. She customises pre-loved furniture by wrapping them in fabric, images and text from books and magazines. I particularly love this table wrapped in Beano comics.’ From Dhs550. Stickythings@hotmail.com, www.facebook.com/stickthingsindubai.
Penelope Walsh, Eating Out Editor ‘I’m coveting the retro and whimsical creations from Sarah’s Bag, a Lebanese label which designs handbags handmade by female inmates, with the aim of helping them get their lives back on track. The kaakeh bag (a bag that looks like Arabic bread, that looks like a handbag) makes me smile.’ www.sarahsbag.com
Caroline Fernandez, freelance writer ‘I might embrace the new tongue-in-cheek ‘normcore’ trend – I’m going back to my teen years of looking boring and blending into sameness. I still own a lot of old clothes that fit this trend and it allows me to be a little lazy. US comic Jerry Seinfeld has mastered the look.’
