Destination XL

Post by Mark

I passed by Symphony Mall to check out the new Bang & Olufsen store but found it closed so I decided to wonder around the mall to check out what other stores are open. The whole mall is pretty much vacant except for a new store in the basement called Destination XL. It’s a big and tall men’s store that opened up just two weeks back.

The place from the inside looks pretty nice with the layout looking very similar to a men’s section in a large department store like Macy’s. I wasn’t allowed to take pictures of the inside but I spotted brands like Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren, Joseph Abboud and Calven Klein among others.

It’s too bad the store is just for the big and tall since I liked the fact they carried a bunch of brands all in one place. Symphony Mall is located in Salmiya right next to Missoni Hotel opposite American University of Kuwait. The entrance is from the back side and the mall looks like it’s still under construction but DXL are open in the basement.

Shake Shack Fanar and Harvey Nichols

Post by Mark

PinkGirlQ8 spotted a Shake Shack coming soon hoarding outside Fanar Mall in Salmiya. I thought the location was a bit odd but I guess they want to drive traffic away from the Johnny Rockets branch that’s just a few shops away.

I also found out the Harvey Nichols launch date at Avenues Phase III is now confirmed to be around end of September early October. This will be their first store in Kuwait.

miu miu coming to 360

Post by Mark

According to Q80 High Street there is now a miu miu “coming soon” hoarding at 360 Mall (she doesn’t mention where in the mall exactly).

Miu Miu is a high fashion brand of women’s clothing and accessories from the Prada fashion house. [Source]

I guess it’s only a matter of time before Prada opens up as well. [Link]

Prada not coming to Kuwait?

Post by Mark

Last September I got a tip saying that Prada was coming to Kuwait and opening up at 360 Mall but according to a recent interview with the CEO he stated the following:

“We are expanding in Morocco, Istanbul, Beirut, Dubai and Qatar” [Source]

What about Kuwait? I guess it could be the CEO just forgot to mention Kuwait…

لوك انا ابوك

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you might have seen the tshirt pictured above. I wasn’t planning to post about it just yet since the tshirt isn’t available yet but I also didn’t expect to get a lot of emails asking about it.

Those of you who’ve been reading blogs for quite some time might remember a blogger called Tatabotata. Well he shutdown his blog ages ago but it’s going to be relaunched again soon as a tshirt store. He used to have a lot of cool and controversial tshirt designs back then (snapshot here) and when he showed me the design above last year I told him I wanted first dibs which is how I became his first customer (and #1 fan).

If you also want this tshirt or his others you will have to wait until his website goes live which is very soon. Right now you can sign up to be notified when his tshirts go live so if you’re interested you can head over to his website [Tatabotata.com]

Burberry Salhiya Now Open

Post by Mark

I think it’s their smallest store in Kuwait. Just remembered they have the much smaller Marina Mall branch.

Just saw this video on iLSuL6ana. Girls just a tip, at the next event forget the line and just charge in from the opposite side as soon as the doors open. Seems to have worked out for a few lucky ladies. [Link]

Puma Ghutra

Post by Mark

I accidentally switched over to 99.7 the other day and heard an advert about The Athlete Foot selling ghutras made by Puma. I think they said that they were created either just for Kuwait or for the region not really sure but I decided to pass by and check them out. Turns out they’re not actually selling ghutras but clothing with the ghutra pattern. Would have been cooler if Puma actually made ghutras.
