Grab your wallet! Dior launches soon-to-close Dubai pop-up store

DUBAI: Luxury brand Christian Dior this week opened the latest in its series of international pop-ups in Dubai.
Taking place in the largest shoe department store in the world, the pop-up shop is located in The Dubai Mall.
Up for grabs is Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut Spring 2017 collection, a ready to wear offering which marks a new page for Dior with the fashion house’s first ever female creative director at the helm.
Shoppers can expect to be enchanted by sheer dresses, tulle skirts and carefully embroidered evening gowns as well as a stellar line-up of accessories.
Also available is a politically powerful t-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “We Should All Be Feminists,” a sartorial statement inspired by feminist writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie whose words have also been featured in Beyoncé’s feminist anthem “Flawless.”
A portion of the t-shirt’s sales will go to Dior brand ambassador Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, Vogue Arabia reported Sunday.
The pop-up is part of a series of similar shopping concepts launched in Japan, Seoul, Singapore, Beijing and Shanghai as well as Los Angeles and Paris.
Dubai’s Dior pop-up is set to run until March 25.

Shanina Shaik spotted on and off the runway in New York

DUBAI: A-Cold-Wall, founded by Virgil Abloh protégé Samuel Ross, and Diesel Red Tag unveiled their hotly-anticipated collaborative capsule collection during New York Fashion Week via an installation, which took over SoHo’s Grand Street on Sept. 10. Ahead of the big reveal, the brands celebrated the launch by hosting a glamorous dinner that was attended by a drove of celebrities, including Karrueche Tran, Kehlani, and Shanina Shaik. Nearly everyone in attendance was wearing pieces plucked from the new Diesel Red Tag x A-Cold-Wall Spring 2020 collection.

Victoria’s Secret model Shaik chose a tie-dye splattered t-shirt, which was neatly tucked into a pair of black, slim-fit jeans. Shaik, whose father is Saudi-Pakistani and whose mother is Lithuanian-Australian, accessorized the casual, laid-back look with a miniature leather handbag and a pair of black, pointed-toe pumps. With her black hair pulled back into a sleek, low-hanging ponytail, Shaik exuded effortless cool.

The 28-year-old has been keeping quite busy this NYFW. Following the dinner, Shaik attended Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Spring 2020 show on Tuesday. Additionally, she’s been spotted at shows by Tommy Hilfiger, Carolina Herrera, PrettyLittleThing x Saweetie and the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party. And when she’s not turning heads on the front row, she’s stealing the scene on the runway, including at LaQuan Smith’s Spring 2020 showcase earlier this week.   

Indeed, it appears that the model hasn’t let her recent divorce slow her down. News of her split from longtime beau Greg “DJ Ruckus” Andrews took the internet by storm when It was first announced in June. The model filed the paperwork in the Los Angeles County Court in July, citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ.

News of their split came as a shock to fans as, earlier this year, Shaik spoke to British model Rosie Huntington-Whitely about starting a family.

“Personally, I’m thinking about a family and when to settle down and have all that as well,” she told the website Rose Inc. “But there are so many things on my dream board that I need to tick off and want to do, and hopefully I’ll do some more movies as well. If I can do all of that, I’ll be very happy,” she added.

The model married Andrews on musician Lenny Kravitz’s private island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas in May 2018.
