DUBAI: Arab influencers have taken the streets of Paris by storm this fashion week. We take a look at six looks sported by the region’s style icons.

Dima Al-Sheikhly

Al-Sheikhly sported a structured red velvet dress to the Elie Saab show this week. She kept her accessories simple as the dress was a statement piece.



Rania Fawaz

Fawaz layered different textures, patterns and colors for this look she wore to the Issey Miyake show. From silk to denim, it does look a little on the messier side of the style spectrum.

Louis Vuitton pulls Michael Jackson-themed items from collection

  • The collection was shown in January at the Paris Fashion week and is due to hit stores in June
  • A Louis Vuitton spokeswoman said the Jackson-themed items would not be put up for sale

PARIS: French fashion house Louis Vuitton has pulled Michael Jackson-themed items from its 2019 summer menswear collection following a documentary about alleged child abuse by the late pop star.
The collection was shown in January at the Paris Fashion week and is due to hit stores in June, but a Louis Vuitton spokeswoman said the Jackson-themed items would not be put up for sale.
Louis Vuitton said that at the time of the event, it was not aware of the “Leaving Neverland” documentary, in which two adult men say they were befriended by Jackson and abused by him in the early 1990s.
“I am aware that in light of this documentary, the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights,” Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh said in a statement.
Abloh, an American designer who was hired by Vuitton in March 2018, said his intention for this show had been to refer to Jackson as a pop culture artist.
The documentary has caused a backlash against Jackson’s legacy, as some radio stations stopped playing his music and an episode of “The Simpsons” cartoon show featuring his voice is being pulled from future broadcasts.
Jackson’s family has called the documentary and news coverage of the accusations a “public lynching” and said he was “100 percent innocent.”
“We find the allegations in the documentary deeply troubling,” Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke said, adding that the firm is fully committed to advocating the cause of child welfare.
Louis Vuitton is the world’s biggest luxury brand, with annual sales of more than 10 billion euros, and is the biggest revenue driver for its parent company, French luxury goods group LVMH.
The menswear unit is a relatively small part of its business and pulling the Jackson-themed items should not have a major impact on the label.
