This week: Bag edgy East London threads and new slimming Spanx sportswear.
Dubai-based East-London inspired style initiative Shoreditch Muse (04 341 5339) is back with another pop-up retail experience at a warehouse space in Al Quoz early this month. The Girls Weekend runs Friday May 2 (4pm-8pm) and Saturday May 3 (2pm-8pm) and features hand-picked labels, jewellery and online stores from Dubai, including collections from West LA Boutique, Fashlink, Monroe & Me and more. Guests can also indulge in mini-manicures from N.Bar and sessions from Make up by Dee & Dal. Head to Capital D Studio, Street 6, Al Quoz to see it unfold.
Meanwhile, Shapewear giant Spanx (050 650 5354) has just unveiled Spanx Active, a brand new line of figure-flattering gymwear that’ll keep you looking good while you work out. The collection includes a sculpting racerback singlet and leggings in comfy, breathable cotton-soft fabrics.
Lastly, a reluctant little birdie tells us that fashion mogul Chanel (04 382 7100) is showing the Chanel Cruise 2014/15 collection in Dubai on Tuesday May 13 at a location known only as The Island. Keep your eyes peeled for some celeb-spotting.
