Last Night in Beirut: Dina JSR Boutique Opening

It is always gratifying to see outstanding talents. It is even more gratifying to see that these talents are Lebanese. Our latest designer crush: Dina JSR. Last night we got the chance to discover her fifth collection, Crystal Waters, in her new boutique in Saifi Village, Beirut. It has a showroom, a workroom and magic, lots of magic. Designed in Beirut, handcrafted in France, Dina JSR collections thrive in delicacy and elegance. While we enjoyed light snacks, good music and sweet ice-cream, we were stunned by Dina’s contagious passion towards her creations. Her inspiration for this latest collection was her very own wedding six months ago. She envisioned what she would have loved for people to be wearing on that special day and transformed it into a flowing collection of light blues, diluted pinks and purples, and warm limes. Her collections are already available in prestigious stores around the globe, but we can’t but feel proud that no matter where our talented people go,they always manage to come back home.

Last Night in Beirut: La Rose de Sim Opening

Last night we were heading to Zalka-Beirut to presence what we already knew was going to be a great night for our friend Rajaa. It was the official opening of his shop: La Rose de Sim. It was his invitation to step into a time machine and go back to iconic times. Before even walking into the shop, you get a hint that the designs are inspired by the Lebanese tradition and heritage. There are a wide range of purses that come in all sizes and portray different attractive visuals. Just as the name of the brand, every creation has a story that is bound to touch your heart.

Bridal Boutique Opening: Something Blue

From the moment we went up the stairs, we felt we were up to something new. We were heading to Something Blue. Yesterday afternoon, we were pleased to attend the opening of the newest bridal boutique in town. The contrast of its beautiful architectural heritage and the modern feel of the rooms definitely left an impression. The new boutique carries a collection of gowns by five different New York based designers amongst them Rafael Cenamo and Ann Barge. It also provides a range of delicate head pieces and bridal image consulting sessions as explained by Cynthia Nakhle, owner and creator of the boutique’s concept. While sipping champagne and eating macarons, we enjoyed knowing that a new store is now offering brides beautiful dresses at affordable ranges while most importantly wishing them lots of luck!
