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 myriad of 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.


West LA

One of Dubai’s quirkier fashion edits lies in West LA boutique in Sunset Mall, showcasing cult brands like For Love & Lemons, Alice McCall and Finders Keepers, at surprisingly affordable prices. A more hipster, as opposed to luxury, curation of fashion makes this store one of Dubai’s most unique.




The super glamorous Symphony boutique is fittingly located in The 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 multibrand boutique, S*uce, has spread all over the city thanks to the chutzpah 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 sums up Dubai style perfectly.


Boutique 1


Boutique 1 is located in the Mall of the Emirates. Taking up around 2,000sqm, it might seem a stretch to call Boutique 1 a 'boutique', but it pulls it off by being incredibly chic and home to a special edit of brands from contemporary to red carpet glamour. Christopher Kane, Delpozo and Erdem, among other popular brands, are displayed on the aesthetically pleasing shop floor.


Ginger & Lace

Home to over 100 fashion and accessory brands displayed in their adorable boutique in Dubai Festival City Mall, Ginger & Lace stocks playful pieces that appeal to feminine tastes and LA-style sensibilities. The boutique stocks both established and emerging brands such as Cristiano Burani, Butter by Nadia, Ella Luna, Raluca and MLH.
