Gucci is out of this world
Gucci has had some memorable campaigns over the years, but the latest – to launch their autumn 2017 men’s and women’s collections – is perhaps the most bizarre but at the same time the most fabulous. Inspired by the sci-fi films and TV shows of the ’50s and ’60s, and more specifically by Star Trek, the wacky images were shot by British photographer Glen Luchford with Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele dreaming up the idea. Here are some of our favourites.

The great fashion buy out
There’s been a lot of changes in the international fashion world over the last few months, most recently the announcement that Michael Kors will be buying out Jimmy Choo as part of his plans to building a multi-brand fashion company. The American designer reportedly paid around Dh44 billion for the brand, which he bought from its previous owner, JAB Holding. Elsewhere, American brand Kate Spade was saved from closure after it was snapped up by Coach for around Dh88 billion. With this and the recent closure of iconic Parisian department store Colette it is undoubtedly an uncertain time in the fashion world.
Tiffany goes street
Tiffany & Co has unveiled its latest range – Tiffany Hard Wear. Inspired by New York City, the range is based on the idea of high fashion meeting urban street style. The bold and heavy shapes are very different from the delicate designs we’re used to seeing from Tiffany, with bolt and lock details offering a modern, more durable feel to the pieces. Prices start at Dh635 for sterling silver and Dh7,500 for 18 carat gold, available at The Dubai Mall store.
Sad for Sana
UAE- based retailer Sana fashion is to close all of its stores after thirty years of trading. As one of the longest standing fashion brands from the UAE, Sana fashion has stores 35 stores across the Middle East, with the latest one in BurJuman Mall opening just last month. The closing seems to be effective immediately with stores already being cleared out. RIP.
