Luxury shopping in Dubai's boutiques

Thu, May 4, 2023

The insider guide to under-the-radar fashion in the city.

The insider guide to under-the-radar fashion in the city.



Located in Dubai's hip Boxpark, Urbanist is an uber-trendy store that holds many cool brands ranging from Comme des Garçons, Anya Hindmarch and Sophie Hulme to leading local designers across the spheres of fashion, jewellery and accessories. With a distinctly unique edit by its Syrian owner, this is a jewel in Boxpark’s crown.



Those who want to flaunt their creativity will delight in a shopping stint at Gigi. This imaginative concept boutique, with showrooms at both of Galleria Mall's locations in Dubai, houses fashionable art, decor, jewellery, beauty accessories – and, of course, designer wear. The spotlight here is on regional talent, with selections from brands like Rania’s Corner and Mrs Keepa.




The super glamorous BySymphony boutique is fittingly located in Dubai Mall, just across from the entrance to Fashion Avenue. Expect expertly curated attire from the likes of Giambattista Valli and Elie Saab, as well as chic sunglasses and luxe accessories.




Dubai’s homegrown multi-brand boutique, S*uce, has spread all over the city thanks to the expertise of founder Zayan Ghandour, whose own fashion line Zayan the Label can be found in the boutique. The edit is quirky and often bright, with eclectic accessories and jewellery that sum up the Dubai style perfectly.


The Edit

The Edit at Alserkal Avenue

Part lifestyle boutique, part gallery, event space and cafe, The Edit exudes a similar artistic charm to Alserkal Avenue, the creative hub in which it is nestled. With a focus on sustainable fashion, you'll find minimalistic-meets-sophisticated pieces lining the racks, as well as elegant jewellery, home decor and beauty products. The vibe is serene, making the venue a perfect stop for a laid-back day of design exploration.
