I still cannot believe that 4 Boutique has managed to get Rad Hourani's collection for fall 2009 and it's actually in store now! That's amazing! Their fashion buyer must be really good! Rad Hourani made a splash this season with the launch of his women and men's collection of uber chic covered in black and leather clothes. 4 Boutique has also received Men's collection of Kris Van Assche (the latest designer for Dior Homme).
4 Boutique is located in Shuwaikh industrial area opposite to BMW showroom. Ramadan opening hours are Saturdays to Thursdays, from 11am-3pm and from 8pm-12am. Fridays from 8pm-12pm. For any inquires, please call (+965) 2492-5444.

I didn't know BCBG had a line called "Bon Voyage" which is dedicated to produce flights-friendly clothes for chic jet-setters. I liked this Cotton padded grey jacket, unbelievably soft to the touch and extremely comfy. Price tag? KD 73.

Fashionistas beware. Rumor is, Créme Boutique is visiting Kuwait. Are any of us safe? Same shop, different spot. Barcode on Saturday, August 29. No matter how hard you try to be good, you can't keep a shopaholic down. Whoever said that money doesn't buy happiness didn't know where to shop.
What's marvellous about noon is that it's not just another fashion brand, it is totally dedicated to the revival of handicraft with a modern twist. The socially-conscious brand is anti-mass production and anti-exploitation. They only work with handicraft workers in factories, which they have personally visited, where workers are treated with dignity and respect.
Allow me to introduce the masterminds behind noon: Nur Kaoukji, Creative Director and Managing Partner of noon, is a Lebanese fashion design student living in London. She is currently entering her final year at the London College of Fashion, which she joined after the completion of a foundation degree at Central Saint Martins. And Siham Nuseibeh is the Managing Partner of noon, earned a BA in Political Journalism from Boston University and an Msc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics. She is currently the executive editor of en.v magazine in Kuwait.
To learn more about noon, please visit their facebook group: noon. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nuwany.com is the brainchild of a young Kuwaiti woman lucky enough to be living in NYC. She has fallen in love with locally designed voguish products and this website is a mere transformation of her passion. According to the site, Nuwany.com will only carry very limited amounts of products. This is why Nuwany.com will always strive to be the place,"Where Unique meets Trendy!". My favourite item on the website is this floral peach pleated tunic dress. And it's KD 45 only.
Créme Boutique has a huge selection of clothing and accessories that cover an extensive list of cutting edge designer brands from all over the world. Join their Facebook group: Créme Boutique for their latest updated.
They have also started working with vintage boutique owners and currently have the impossible-to-find vintage Chanel jumbo bag on auction at souq.com. (swoooon!) they will be also receiving other vintage Chanel accessories.
Marami... consider me addicted.

I'm always on the eye out for a casual chic items as these what I consume the most in my daily lifestyle. And in Whistles I found some cute casual items from the store's new Autumn Winter collection 2009. They had really nice oversized and very Stella McCartney-esque knitted tops which would look very on-trend paired with leggings or simply flat boots if you're petite.
This squiggle applique orange dress is incredibly cute and its priced at KD 64.400. Ahem.. even though it's 40 pounds online! (correction.. it's 140 pounds! Thanks Bibi)
As well as this exciting news, they also have a new 'style director' who has joined them from the UK - Elaine has cut and styled in some of the UK's top salons and her skills are turning heads here in Kuwait too. Call Elaine for a personal consultation on (+965) 2390-2077.
