Brand to Watch: I’m Isola Marras
The diffusion line by Antonio Marras (formerly creative designer at Kenzo) arrived in the UAE late last year and has just revealed its Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Exclusively in the region at its City Walk store, the collection includes graphic and floral prints in oversized yet wearable shapes inspired by the circus. Prices start at around Dh500.
See now, buy now
It was only a matter of time before the global ‘see now, buy now’ concept hit the UAE: Pôlette boutique is providing collections from local designers, including Fatima Salamat, Samira Taleb and Canella Hostal (left; their clothes are all made in the UAE), straight after their global shows. Available now at the City Walk Dubai store.
