Louis Vuitton launches first online store in UAE

DUBAI: French luxury brand Louis Vuitton has launched its first-ever online store in the United Arab Emirates.

The e-commerce platform, accessible on louisvuitton.ae, has launched with a range of ready-to-wear for both men and women, leather goods, footwear, accessories, watches, jewelry, luggage and fragrances available to shop in both Arabic and English.

The storied Parisian maison currently has three flagship stores operating in the UAE, including at the Dubai Mall’s expansive Fashion Avenue, the Mall of the Emirates and Abu Dhabi’s Marina Mall.

Clients can also enjoy a number of personalization services such as hot-stamping and engraving their purchases. 

What’s more, the new platform, which is already up and running, offers complimentary delivery services and returns seven days a week, for those that are practicing social-distancing and self-isolating at home.

Dubai’s streetwear festival Sole DXB canceled due to pandemic

DUBAI: The region’s premiere streetwear festival, Sole DXB, will not be happening in 2020, the organizers announced via a statement on Sunday.

The organizers revealed that they “aren’t confident” that they can deliver the experience festival-goers “deserve with the health and safety standards” they expect. 

“While the situation continues to improve on the ground in Dubai, the festival is a collective effort by our community around the world and we’re ready to wait ‘til they can be a part of it too,” said the statement.

Organizers also announced that they do not have a new date set. The streetwear and music festival typically takes place during the first week of December.

The urban and streetwear festival seamlessly brings together the region’s music lovers and sneakerheads, who flock to Dubai Design District to enjoy performances from top artists such as Nas and Wu Tang Clan as well as shop local and international streetwear brands.

In light of the pandemic, Sole DXB recently launched a new mixed-media platform, sole.digital, dedicated to music, fashion, the visual arts and sports from the Middle East, India, Africa, the Caribbean and their diasporas.
