New stores & collections
Philipp Plein opens at The Dubai Mall
Luxury German label Philipp Plein unveils its flagship store at The Dubai Mall on Thursday September 20. The brand’s aesthetic is part rock’n’roll, part avant-garde, so it’s no surprise that Gossip Girl’s resident bad boy Ed Westwick fronts the autumn/winter campaign.
Philipp Plein, The Dubai Mall, Level 1, Fashion Avenue (04 339 8262).
Promod autumn/winter collection
The newest line from the French chain features Chanel-inspired tweed cropped jackets and subtle snakeskin-printed skirts. Rather than churn out trends, the brand takes a classic approach to its designs to ensure they stand the test of time.
