Showcasing the finest and most iconic looks of Spring / Summer 2017, Dubai’s premier department store Harvey Nichols – Dubai, presented the season’s key fashion trends which are now available instore.
The Harvey Nichols – Dubai trunk show was a two-day affair, comprised of a dinner and see-now-buy-now shopping concept on 29 and 30 March, at Inked Dubai in Al Serkal Avenue, Al Quoz.
Inspired by the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris, the show was a careful curation of the most coveted brands and pieces, put together to emulate a refined style that has become the signature look for Harvey Nichols – Dubai.
The intimate event hosted an exclusive group of VIP customers that attended each evening’s seated dinner, exhibiting a runway of models wearing select Spring / Summer 2017 collections, further complemented by the presence of the MARLI New York fine jewellery brand, both of which are synonymous with style and luxury.
Event attendees were able to view the trends of the season, and simultaneously shop the runway and display showcases.
The runway featured a kaleidoscope of trends including this season’s love for all things ruffled, striped, and flared for Womenswear; baby doll dresses, midi skirts and eveningwear gowns were adorned with ruffles for an added overstated look, whilst wide-legged trousers explored dramatic dimensions. Baby blue was the prominent hue as seen on the catwalk, with standout examples from Johanna Ortiz, Dries Van Noten, Ellery and Alexander McQueen. Menswear exhibited a coastal-classic look, beige being the popular palette of choice, with blazers, stripes, shorts and less-defined shapes supporting the trend.
Key looks included Stella McCartney, Thom Browne, Balenciaga and Givenchy.
Models sported equally chic make-up looks by the PRO Team ME, with contoured cheeks and high-impact highlighters being two of the essential elements. Hair was coiffed in a simple series of braids by hair care brand Sachajuan.
