My Trip to Louvre, Abu Dhabi

Louvre is one of the most popular and well know gallery around the world. Now it is located not only in Paris but Abu Dhabi as well. It was on my list for quite some time and finally, I got the chance to visit it. Honestly, it was impressive to see it, such a stunning architecture and location. Great spot for some fashion photography since its designed in ultra-modern style. Plus the whole gallery surrounded by water which makes it even more incredible. Of course, the one in Paris holds more artworks but the art selection in the Abu Dhabi branch is great as well. I think to see everything inside you will need at least 4 hours. I will definitely recommend to all my friends and consider this place as a must-see for tourists.

Monochrome always…

KRITICIOUS

Good Afternoon lovelies!!

One can never say to monochrome anything because it is simply the epitome of classic style since everyone learnt to differentiate their Chanel Kelly from from the flap bag. Lol now I sound like Mark Francis. Pardon my fashion arrogance. This look is fairly simple but elevated with the choice of flared garments. The off shoulder top by Concrete Unicorn is soft on your skin and makes you looks simple yet elevated. Now that I think about it I’ll just wear this today. Lol. Oh and the pants are from trusty Zara. I love this look because it’s simple and classic and sort of a departure from my usual habit to be quirky. Scroll down for look details and have a blessed Wednesday. Until next kritical post. xoxo.

I came across an amazing brand, I’m Isola which was opened recently on City Walk near Dubai Dawntown. The brand presents Italian clothes done by Antonio Marras as casual wear with interesting textures and fabrics. Each outfit it is a statement and piece of art. The whole line is designed to be easy wearable on a daily basis. However, it is more than basic wardrobe choices. I’m Isola highlights a strong and playful personality of its owner. Below you can see some of the outfits. In winter collection you will find many cozy sweaters, coats, jumpers, scarfs and other warm pieces. In fact, I discovered the store during the launch of winter collection and was surprised how I never enter it before. Would love to get a couple of outfits from there.  Last but not least, even the design of the store is very special with the signature print wallpapers. If you are coming to City Walk do not forget to visit I’m Isola store and let me know about your favorite outfits.

img_6627

The collaboration between Kenzo and H&M is the top exciting events for this season. After the huge success with Balmain last year, H&M decided to do it with the other luxury brand, Kenzo. For my readers, I am revealing the collection secrets, before it even arrived to the stores. In this line, you will see splash colors with lots of animal prints. I felt like each piece in KENZOxH&M line is the statement. I would also highlight the double sides jackets. I love the idea that by buying one jacket you can flip it and get another color. Such a cool and quick transformation. Besides, there are lots of amazing accessories as well with Kenzo logo. So if you always wanted to own luxury pieces in your wardrobe, it is a great chance to get it at an affordable price.

KENZOxH&M collection will be launched on 3rd November in selected stores. In Dubai, it will be availible in official H&M stores at The Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Mirdif City Center and in Abu Dhabi at Yas Mall. Hurry up because it will be sold out super quick.

Arab Fashion Week Spring/Summer’17

 

One of the biggest fashion events in Dubai is Arab Fashion Week which is dedicated to designers from all over the world. The event is semiannual and happens twice a year, usually in October and March. During Spring/Summer’17 runway, I saw designers from different countries such as Italy, USA, Saudi Arabia, France, Sweden and others.  All shows were hosted at The Meydan Hotel, the top popular place for horse racing and big concerts. However, each season, the location of AFW is always different. I recorded a little video about the event, so you can see the ambience and shows which I attended this time.

The first day was mainly men’s collection and other days were women fashion shows. Each runway was very standard for 10-15 minutes with a break between different designers. Outside were mini clothing and accessory shops so during half an hour break, I went around and talk to some of the designers. Also, at the end of each day there was an afterparty and on the last day was a big red carpet event. I went for one afterparty at VII restaurant which was absolutely awesome, the other ones, unfortunately, I had no time to attend.

If you would like to participate or just attend next AFW, check it out the official website for more details. Personally, I registered as a blogger but it is possible to come and see fashion shows even if you are not related to the industry. So if you have a passion for fashion, you should totally attend the next one. Last but not least, I feel like each season Arab Fashion Week getting better and better, bigger designers participating in it and the whole organization moving to a larger scale.

Claudie Pierlot Fall/Winter’16 Collection

Super fashionable  brand Claudie Pierlot had a launch of Fall/Winter’16 collection. The event took place at The Dubai Mall in their store which is located on the ground floor next to Sephora. The new collection is absolutely gorgeous so elegant and simple at the same time.  During the event, I learned something interesting about this brand.  Claudie Pierlot, Maje and Sandro are under the same group, SMCP.  Good to know because these three brands are my favorite in the affordable luxury category. I love trendy yet practical styles that they create, I find it perfect for day wear.

Also, for the new collection, Claudie Pierlot did a collaboration with a famous model, Marjan Jonkman.  She helped to design lots of gorgeous pieces. Besides, she is the face of the brands for Fall/Winter’16. However, I feel like with or without collaborations this brand does a great job, keeping up with latest trends. Personally, I liked many things in the store.

Last but not least, I could also get my hair braided during the event so of course, I did. My  cute hairstyle was done by one of the hairdressers from Firth Avenue Salon. She was very quick, I believe it took around 5-10 minutes. So the event totally exceeded my expectations. I had really lots of fun, great collection, delicious snacks, beautiful photos and lovely hairstyle.
