DUBAI: British actress Florence Pugh was spotted in an ensemble by Moroccan-led label Casablanca in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The “Don’t Worry Darling” actress was styled by Rebecca Corbin-Murray, who chose the futuristic look from Casablanca’s Spring/Summer 2023 ready-to-wear collection.
Featuring peek-a-boo cutouts and oversized lapels, the outfit is everything fashion insiders have come to expect from the pioneering brand.
Corbin-Murray finished off the look with understated Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
Casablanca, founded by Charaf Tajer, is known for its use of luxury silk and cashmere in clothing inspired by Tajer’s Moroccan roots.
The label has been flaunted by the likes of British singer Dua Lipa in the past, while US actor Nicolas Cage starred in a recent campaign for the brand.
No stranger to the limelight, Tajer partnered with Italian luxury brand Bulgari on a new collection in March.
The seven-piece collection, a mix of sporty and elegant designs, was divided into two launches.
The first, inspired by tennis bags and titled Apres Tennis, was released on April 20. The second launch, Mosaic Story, which dropped on May 2, was inspired by landmarks in Rome, the city where Bulgari was founded.
The brand’s debut runway during Paris Men’s Fashion Week in 2018 was a love letter to the designer’s parents who met while working side by side in a clothing atelier in the fashion district of Casablanca.
Casablanca is also known for its charitable initiatives.
In March, the label pledged to donate all proceeds from sales on its website this weekend to help Africans fleeing Ukraine in the wake of the Russian invasion.
In a statement on its Instagram, the Paris-based label said: “Throughout the growth of Casablanca, our ambition is to support as many people in need as we can, on every level. Globally, many countries and people are in need of critical help as a repercussion of countless unnecessary wars and conflicts.”
For her part, Pugh is set to star “Dune: Part 2,” with shooting locations confirmed in Jordan and the UAE. However, it is unclear whether the star will touch down in the Middle East for her role in the hugely anticipated sci-fi film.
