This week: Check out Harvey Nichols’ pop-up show, plus new Alice + Olivia threads.
Luxe department store Harvey Nichols (04 409 8888) is currently hosting a sports-themed pop-up exhibition to showcase football and fashion, which will be on display until May. The National Football Museum pop-up features rare items, including a shirt worn by former England legend Bobby Moore, a life-sized mannequin of Brazil’s Pele, the FA Cup and the Premier League Trophy. Shoppers also get the chance to meet British football legends, who will be making in-store appearances throughout, or win a grand prize of a trip for two to the UK to watch a live football match.
Meanwhile, the new Alice + Olivia (04 334 8320) boutique in Mall of the Emirates’ Fashion District is about to unveil a very cool collaboration that you simply must check out. NYC-based designer and founder of the label Stacey Bendet has joined forces with edgy Korean-American artist David Choe to create a capsule collection adorned with his ‘A Woman and a Monkey’ painting. The image appears on a shift dress, retro-inspired full skirt and a ballgown as part of the spring/summer 2014 collection.
