Dubai’s premiere street culture festival, Sole DXB, is returning for its eighth edition, and this year it's making a point to champion local talent. Here are some of the homegrown labels to watch out for.
A unisex lifestyle label known for its fuss-free basics that include ultra-cozy track suits, sweatshirts and graphic tops and has collaborated with Nike and Carhartt Wip to name a few.
Spearheaded by Wathek Allal, a Syrian-born, Algerian skateboarder-turned-fashion-designer, Precious Trust flawlessly marries traditional Algerian garments with Western sportswear.
An abbreviation for Too Dark to See Tomorrow, the Riyadh-based unisex label founded in 2016 is one of the first streetwear brands to emerge out of Saudi Arabia.
Founded by designer Farrukh Ershad, the idea of 5ive Pillars is to mix Arabic art and literature with contemporary streetwear, resulting in a lineup of graphic T-shirts, jackets, track pants and hoodies.
A Dubai-based label, founded by Egyptian designer and pattern-maker Engy Mahdy, that focuses on expertly-tailored and carefully-curated pieces that can be worn by both men and women.
The eponymous brand features a range of classically-made, minimalist, luxurious leather handbags, all individually manufactured in the UAE.
