Fyunka


In Arabic fyunka means “bow”.
In the Gulf there is a little woman illustrated by Alaa Hashim Balkhy who is really popular. She represents a brand called Fyunka. This brand is absolutely one of the funniest khaleeji brands, alias (Arabian Gulf brands).
Alaa creations have absolutely a trademark. They are a mix between Pop Art and Khaleeji culture. The first time that I noticed this brand I was still in Milan. I was reading some articles online when I saw those bags with Chanel and Hermés bags’ shapes printed on canvas (a little bit as V73 does). Actually those models weren’t so interesting for me because, you know, I not really even like V73.
But all other prints where the Pop Art influence is evident get me crazy! I adore them!
I’m so happy to see how much popularity got this brand in the Gulf. Middle east people usually spend money for brands that are already popular and well-known. They want to show items that are recognizable. So evenif these markets are very potential, new brands struggle to emerge. Fyunka was one of those brands that won!
Further, I guess I love this brand because the little woman reminds me Mrs B. a lot! She looks like the arabic version of Mrs B.! And it makes me laugh so much! Maybe one day, you will see Fyunka and Mrs B. walking together along arabic streets.
