Mr.Über does the Raf Simons fashion show in an Armani shirt, a vintage Lanvin blazer, Dsquared2 jeans, YSL shoes, Cartier bracelets and Rolex watch. Now strut!
I think these Guardian Angel “Dont mess with me” bags from Vlieger & Vandam are absolutely kickass. Definitely adding one of these to my birthday list! Any takers? Anybody?
When was your label established and how did the idea come about?
It was the time for me to move on, on my own! The idea of handbags started in early 2008 between myself and a partner of mine. We created a handbag line called love and label. After going through many trials and errors, I decided to continue on my own and took the whole brand to a higher level and kept it under my name.
Tell us a little bit about your latest collection.
I’m presenting my FW2012 collection, where colors vary from cold pink to warm navy blue. I use textured and plain calf leather. The high-impact accessories add up all the detail emphasizing on the designer’s inspiration of mixing chains and braids.
How would you describe your own personal style?
No matter how rapid fashion changes, I’ll always have that touch of mine, I go to extremes! I wear contemporary fashion and I collect vintage jewellery. I fancy romantic flowy dresses although structured pieces always grab my attention.
Which bag is the ‘IT’ Farah Asmar bag for the summer?
The Bree tote and the Silvia shoulder bag are our best sellers. But you can find wonderful bags in our Winter 2012 collection too.
What do you do when you’re not sketching and designing?
I have no clue what I’d be if I wasn’t a designer, probably a chef! If I’m not sketching I’m usually brainstorming and researching!
What’s your favourite city and why?
Anywhere I can walk barefoot by the beach. But since I produce my work in Istanbul, I find it very inspiring. It’s so rich and diverse!
I love Chloe Jade Green’s shoe collection which was launched back in May. The elegant designs contrast beautifully with Gothic opulence. Look out for her mega high platform heels and her signature “Green” sole. What’s really cute too, is that Chloe (daughter of TopShop mogul Sir Phillip Green) personally named every pair of shoes after members of her family, close friends and special people in her life. Awwww!
Every piece of Dina’s collection is handmade to sheer perfection, bringing a certain liveliness to any space. She values the relationship between craftsmanship and technology, and strives to produce beautiful, timeless pieces of furniture that encourage creative living and expression.
The designs infuse western elegance with modern arabesque inspirations creating exquisite pieces. Her love to experience with different materials, styles and innovations has earned her a respectable reputation and a growing customer base, spiraling all the way from Jordan to countries all around the world.
“Dina Gildeh” was establish in 2009 by sisters Dina & Tala Gildeh.
