This week: French kicks at West LA, Spanx for men and Just Gift It signs Sephora.
Bored of sandals and flip flops? Fear not, there is now a hot weather footwear solution for you. Sunset Mall hotspot West LA Boutique (04 394 4248) is now stocking out-there espadrilles, the new summer footwear essential. Made in France and available in edgy styles for both men and women, the latest collection from L’Espadrille Tropezienne includes snakeskin styles, graffiti motifs, simple vintage denim fabrics, options with black spikes, and on-trend camo.
Meanwhile, gents looking for a quick fix in the pursuit for toned abs and pumped up pecks can dabble in manly shapewear. SPANX for Men is now available in Dubai for the first time at lingerie giant K-Lynn (04 341 0708). The seamless undershirt has cooling features and compression zones on the torso and chest to give your physique a more streamlined effect. Available in both crew neck and V-neck styles for Dhs295.
Lastly, Dubai-based social media gifting service Just Gift It (www.justgiftit.com), in which users can both gift and redeem electronic gifts to friends via Facebook, has just signed beauty big gun Sephora (04 339 9828) to its list of clients. An ideal opportunity to spontaneously send your other half their favourite fragrance next time you’re browsing the web. Until next week, stay stylish.
