The North Face Now Open

Post by Mark

I was wandering around Avenues Phase III today and noticed The North Face had opened up their first store in Kuwait (they’re on the second floor). It’s a good brand for anyone looking for outdoor and camping gear. Their tents aren’t very portable but their sleeping bags can be very compact and they’ve got a nice collection of soft and hard shell jackets as well as camping backpacks.

Harvey Nichols Launch

Post by Mark

Last night Harvey Nichols had a very lavish private launch event which I was lucky enough to attend. I don’t go to many events but I had a feeling this was going to be different and it was. The night was filled with a lot of really stylish and well dressed people socializing and being seen. We were allowed to walk around and shop in the store if we wanted to while they had the most incredible seafood buffet outside the store inside Avenues Phase III. The mall looks really fantastic inside and they had small standing tables all around outside the store for us to gather around and mingle with friends. I even managed to see a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for over 10 years! It was a really great and tasteful evening and I’ll probably be attending more events because of it.

Early on in the year I posted the picture above of a tshirt I bought from my friend TataBotata. Back then they weren’t on sale yet since his website wasn’t up and running but yesterday I found out the site is now ready. The Luke Ana Abouk tshirt along with some of his other creative creations are now being sold [Here]

Prada Opening in October

Post by Mark

I’ve gotten confirmation from two different sources that Prada will be opening at 360 Mall this October. I was also told a second branch would be opening at a later stage in Avenues Phase II. The launch date for the 360 Mall Prada store is currently set for October 15th.

Update: My guess is that the Miu Miu space in 360 Mall is actually for Prada as well.

Capital District and Slider Station Team Up

Post by Mark

Local tshirt brand Capital District have a new line of tshirts which were done in collaboration with Slider Station. From the 3 different colored shirts I ordered the burger one pictured above since I thought it was black but disappointingly turned out to be brown. You can check out the tshirts on the Capital District website, the Slider Station ones start with “SS”. [Link]

Rumor: Abercrombie & Fitch coming to Kuwait and the Middle East

Post by Mark

Earlier today I was told that Habchi and Chalhoub are currently in negotiations with Abercrombie & Fitch to bring them to the region. The Chalhoub Group already have a bunch of popular brands in their roster including Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lacoste, Celine and Marc Jacobs so it would be realistic for them to get the brand although I always imagined Alshaya bringing them. I’m actually interested to see how the brand will adapt to the region but my guess is there won’t be much of an issue. For now I’ll leave you with the video above of the A&F guys lipdubbing “Call Me Maybe” while I go do a thousand sit-ups and starve myself. [YouTube]

Ralph Lauren Summer Sale

Post by Mark

Two days back I found out Ralph Lauren had a summer sale (50% off) taking place so I passed by today and picked up a few shirts. To my surprise it turns out I now wear size “small”. Thank you Fahad for that. If you’re interested, sale is on till July 10th. The classic polo shirts are not included in the sale.

Update: Forgot to add they’re also opening up a huge flagship store in Avenues Phase III.
