I’m obsessed with these Minnie Mouse-inspired shoes from Oscar Tiyre. The designer, who is known for his quirky and stylish heels, has released the limited-edition collection for summer. They are super cute but still manage to look smart and sophisticated at the same time. Dh1,920, available at Stylebop.com

How amazing was the location for the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 collection? The stunning setting in Kyoto, Japan, was one of the most spectacular runway settings I’ve ever seen. Models entered the catwalk through a metal tunnel across a suspension bridge overlooking the Shigaraki mountains (talk about an Instagram moment!) The clothes themselves were designed by creative director Nicholas Ghesquiere in collaboration with Japanese designer Kansai Yamamoto, and had strong Japanese influences. Clashing prints, layered pieces, kimono-inspired cuts and structured styles made for a stunning collaboration.

2.3 million sq ft!

That’s the size of a new mall in Dubai announced this week. As if we need another place to shop, this mall is set to be one of the largest in the country and is costing roughly Dh1 billion. On completion in 2020 the mall, which will be located at the Dubai Expo site, will house 300 fashion stores as well as over 50 food outlets. In line with Expo 2020, this mall is set to be extra modern with sky-lit corridors and a futuristic design.
