Webby Wednesday: futureboheme.com


Curating your own unique style is an art form, and the first tip to achieve that is looking for pieces of clothes or accessories, NOT featured or heavily promoted by glossies offline and online, that's why you need to check out Future Boheme, a Kuwait-based online shopping site that offers a collection of modern hand crafted items showcasing bohemian inspired bags, jewelry and accessories.

All of Future Boheme's items are hand produced working with artists and designers across the globe as far reaching as Australia, Colombia and the USA. Most of their products are one off's and won't be seen elsewhere. In fact, 90% of their  products are individually made and fair trade items that help support local artisan communities in Colombia and Thailand. Also, some of the emerging designers they work with stock items in major retails chains across the US.

Net-a-Porter to launch J Brand Collaboration with Designer Simone Rocha

One collaboration I'm so looking forward to this month is the J Brand x Simone Rocha capsule collection, set to be released sometime in December 2014.

Having previously collaborated with a host of internationally renowned designers such as the New York women’s wear duo Proenza Schouler and London’s brightest stars including Christopher Kane, J Brand is as known for supporting emerging design talent as it is for its denim.

Since graduating with an MA in Fashion Design from the prestigious Central St Martins, Simone Rocha has instantaneously become a highlight of the London Fashion Week schedule, and was honored with the British Fashion Council’s Emerging Women’s wear Designer award for 2013.

My favorite piece of the collaboration is the pink denim jacket with cute off-the-shoulders ruffles. The perfect piece to kick-start shopping for Resort, would;t you say?

Outfit of the Day

It's dress-down Friday!!! It's the day we sleep in, catch up on our hobbies (or not), spend quality time with the family, and eat like there's no tomorrow! So I decided to go for my Vyshyvanka by Vita Kin embroidered caftan, it's by a new and hip Ukrainian designer, whom I contacted via whatsapp to place my order. It's amazing what a one post on instagram can generate so much profit all over the world. The designer has become so famous that last August 2014, the wife of Ukrainian president was featured on the cover of Elle magazine dressed in Vyshyvanka by Vita Kin! I chose to pair my comfy caftan with Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals, and minimal accessories. Super comfy day! 

Chocolate cake anyone??

What's New at Celine

It's always a must to pass by Celine's boutique at Prestige in the Grand Avenue, even if I have nothing in mind (or pocket) to buy. As cliche as my next statement may sound, but I really really love Celine! It's simply not the kind of brand that screams in the face of people that it is a designer jacket/bag/shoe on every inch of its exterior. This is quiet sophistication on its own, and let's not start talking about the high quality craftsmanship as I don't want to sound like a broken record. So I leave you now with some Celine's eye candy for Fall 2014.

Krikor Jabotian's Amal Collection

"The hope we secretly carry is the most sincere definition of who we are." That's how Beirut-based designer Krikor Jabotian described his Fall 2014 collection, one of the most stunning couture evening gowns designs I have seen. I've known Krikor for quite sometime, and let me tell you this, he has a special quality that I find rare in emerging talents from our region. He's genuine. Yes, you read that right, a simple quality that is a rare breed in our back-stabbing, shallow, materialistic fashion industry. He hasn't changed over the years, which make him a gem on the personal and professional level, and I hope that would never change. 

Krikor's Amal (or Hope) collection excels at high-drama cocktail dresses and evening gowns with experimental volumes and proportion. Feminine details in the form of lace, feathers, and floral work to balance the architectural yet soft lines, and they’ve helped put his evening looks on our the wish list of many girls from our region who go for something dramatic and beautiful when hosting a wedding or attending one. Scroll down for more of this fashion fantasy.

The Brand New Boutique 4

I have finally managed to visit Boutique 4 after it's new facelift. As expected, the selection of clothes and accessories did not disappoint. There was nothing "too trendy" here.  It was all very original and therefore would always stand the test of time...no matter what you buy, well at least for most of the selection in store. I have to admit though, the entrance was a bit confusing for me. I stood there in front of the giant knob-less metal wall wondering how to get it, thankfully one of the sales guys saw me and asked me to simply push the wall to get in, that was cool! I like that the space was not drastically changed. The space is well thought-out and organized but not excessively designed or controlled like some other boutiques, which I liked. The lights however needed to be slightly (teeny tiny) dimmed. Now back to the selection, I loved their new accessories especially Olympia le-tan, who offered something different, book clutches but in leather not fabric! And I liked the most practical designs of the brand. Also GOLDEN GOOSE Distressed Superstar sneakers are just fabulous!

Flavor of the Day: Rich Tassels

Whenever I spot something that I really like in a magazine or online, I take a note of it, and make sure to add it to my Flavor of the Day segment, it works as my visual diary I guess. And today's find is this statement Eddie Borgo burgundy silk tassels necklace, it has this carefree and cool effect, and works best with simple tops. You can shop it online here

Outfit of the Day

Lately AlOthman boutique has been my favorite spot to take OOTD's selfies. I'm wearing a pair of GAP boyfriend jeans, a fringed cotton top by Stella McCartney, black and white pumps by Gianvito Rossi, and THE trophy piece of the season, Sandy Liang leather and fur sleeves oversized pilot jacket from AlOthman, a little touch of rock, but still looks polished, no?

Pearly Crown

Spotted this Rosantica's delicate gold dipped pearl headband at Harvey Nichols Kuwait the other day, and I fell in love with the detail! Notice how the pearls are entwined in the design. This grecian-inpired piece is the perfect accessory for weddings, parties, and glamorous evening events.

Actually, in one of episodes of TV series Blood for Blood, the beautiful bride Greer wore the same hairband and she looked stunning! You can find a photo of her here

Step It Up With LV

Louis Vuitton has truly upped their ante ever since Nicolas Ghesquière took over as the artistic director. I think it’s quite interesting how Louis Vuitton is changing their brand and targeting younger more hip crowd. They want to sell that feeling of exclusivity, which was long lost with their brand. They don't want to have their brand accessible by every household, and the fact that LV is one of the most frequently and easily knocked off logos around. So they're focusing on hard to replicate designs, high quality, and appealing-to-youngsters kind of designs. 

I spotted these shoes at Louis Vuitton's boutique in Salhiya Complex. I loved the brown brogues with the golden zipper details, they'd look chic with a pair of ripped boyfriend blue jeans and oversized tucked in tee. The catchy LV Love slippers look cool too with Culottes and fitted knit top.

M Missoni Opens a new Boutique in Kuwait's Gate Mall

I just got an e-mail announcing that M Missoni has opened its new exclusive boutique in Gate Mall. The new boutique designed by Milan-based Correa Granados Architects has an area of over 100 m2 divided into two room, which radiates a clean, natural feel with neutral warm finishes and timeless atmosphere, and stocks a vast selection of women's ready-to-wear and accessories. 

I have a confession, I haven't been to Gate Mall yet!! Must add to my "to-do" list!
