Get Gigi’s look
Gigi Hadid has collaborated with Vogue Eyewear to create four limited-edition styles of sunglasses. Each of the four styles comes in a number of bright summery colours – choose from a classic aviator, fifties-style cat-eye, and large and small circular lenses – there’s something for every face shape and every style. Each pair of sunnies comes engraved with Gigi’s signature. Prices start at Dh515 at opticians across the UAE.
The Outnet.com has launched its first in-house swimwear collection. The range comes from the site’s already established in-house brand Iris & Ink and features bikinis and one-piece swimsuits. All the pieces have a nautical feel to them with blue, red black and white making up the collection’s colour palette. Prices start at Dh185, so they’re totally affordable. The collection is available to buy now.
Yellow is the must-have colour for summer and it’s taking over the red carpets, too. Everyone from Sofia Vergara to Kate Bosworth has been wearing the summery shade. Either opt for all-out yellow like Sofia or go for something more subtle in the form of a print of a pastel lemon tone like Kate. Going to a wedding this season or looking for a summer party dress? This is a great way to brighten up your wardrobe.

New designer alert
I love these fun jewellery pieces from Lebanese accessories brand Elsa O. This is the first collection from the designer who has just launched her products in the UAE. The Exotic collection features earrings, necklaces and brooches in the form of birds, palm trees and quirky fruit and creatures made from Swarovski crystals. Elsa was inspired by her grandmother’s bold style and loves the way she wears brooches to brighten up her outfit. What’s more, all of her products are handmade in the region. Prices start at Dh220, available at Elsaolaccessoire.com
