Fatale Black with Agent Provocateur

Agent Provocateur has been the world’s leading luxury lingerie brand. This opulent British brand was founded in 1994 by Joseph Corre and Serena Rees. The company has now grown to 30 stories in 13 countries.

Agent Provocateur prides itself for femininity and charm. The brand has created a successful fragrance portfolio which began more than a decade ago flaunting the marriage between scent & seduction.

It’s latest creation Fatale Black was inspired by the 1940’s femme fatale, mysterious and seductive. She is carefree but never loses her composure. She is sensual and elegant owning a tasteful appreciation for a luscious lifestyle.

A teasingly enigmatic scent with an irresistible signature personality, Fatale Black is outrageously bold. It’s enticing top note is a majestic blend of spicy Pink Pepper from Madagascar, juxtaposed with succulent Mango and exotic Blackcurrant for an indescribably mysterious opening sensation that scintillates the senses.

The voluptuous floral heart seduces with uber-feminine, heavenly Gardenia, edged with elegant, woody, violet-scented Orris Absolute, and sweet yet dark and sophisticated, smoky touches of Indonesian Patchouli. An addictive base of sultry, sensual Skin Musk, creamy Vanilla Orchid, irresistible Chocolate Gourmand and leathery Spanish Labdanum deliver long-lasting power, depth and aphrodisiac qualities to complete the seduction.

It’s fatal attraction with Fatale Black.

California Dreaming with Banana Republic

Banana Republic is a Clothing & Accessories retailer owned by American Multinational corporation The Gap Inc. It was founded in 1978 by Mel & Patricia Ziegler with a safari theme; in 1983 Gap purchased the company and gave it more of an upscale image.

Although San Francisco is home to Banana Republic, the Spring 2014 Collection preview brought California to Dubai, taking us through the brand’s West Coast heritage, definitely an evening spent in ‘True California’.

This season’s Ready-to-Wear unveiled Banana Republic’s classical American appeal expressing an authentically fresh and friendly sportswear collection. A neutral color palette was definitely the inspiration behind this contemporary collection. Acting head of Woman’s design mentions her melange of “Sonoran desert shades; sand, oatmeal and hints of grounding coral”. The pants silhouettes were causal and relaxed.. My favorite were the classical ivory linen & cotton navy pique trousers styled with ankle-strapped shades of brun sandals. From flattering fluted skirts, to soft borrowed from the ‘boyfriend’ white & beige chinos cuffed right above the ankles.. all were seen classically coupled with a tonal basket- weave sweater and Banana Republic’s signature safari Jacket.

Color-blocked tuxedo stripes, braided bangle bracelets and monochrome bucket bags were alive throughout the musical night. Tailored khaki suits, sophisticated pea-coats and light wash jeans took the hype in menswear this season.

As we watched the sun set amidst the lush green gardens surrounded by fresh water fountains of youth & joy.. swings & hammocks danced the night away to a lively ambiance where guests could kick-back to some fresh lemonade, candy, canapes and live barbecue.
Models and puppies dressed the garden with Banana Republic’s west coast feel while we got to go home with a fun-frenzy flip book and a pretty pink & tan leather plush pouch.

 It was all about California Love in Dazzling Dubai

Dreams are unlocked at The Fashion Vault


Dubai is the city of Dolce Dreams..

I feel so blessed to witness the growth and success Dubai has achieved over the years. Living my whole life in this city of wonders, I believe that nothing is impossible. To have been able to observe the transformation Dubai has gone through over the years really does create a strong culture of people who believe in pursuing their dreams. H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoom once said, “We, in the UAE, have no such word as “impossible”; it does not exist in our lexicon. Such a word is used by the lazy and the weak, who fear challenges and progress. When one doubts his potential and capabilities as well as his confidence, he will lose the compass that leads him to success and excellence, thus failing to achieve his goal. I require you, youth, to insist on number one.”
This is what I grew up into.. and this is what I hold in my heart to succeed in making a difference in the world.

The Fashion Vault has just launched it’s boutique in Sunset Mall, embracing local talent in a treasury for Fashionistas.. This is the Dubai I love, a city where all is possible in the support for new talent, new creativity and state-of-the-art implementation.

Head down to Sunset Mall on Jumeirah Beach RD, to embrace the most fashionable pieces in town.
