Yesterday afternoon I went to The Pearl to have a look of new shopping windows. The Pearl is the only place where I can go for shopping, avoiding malls. You walk along the street and you have best boutiques on one side and the sea on the other one! It’s a good compromise for an italian girl that for sure doesn’t like shopping in a mall!
The pearl is also one of the symbol of Doha. After gas, this state has also pearls. As say.. when a State was born rich it can only become richer!
Anyway, the reason for which I introduced pearls is because they immediately reminded me to a brand that I noticed last year browsing on web in a very very lazy Sunday.
The name of this brand is Mother of Pearl and it’s from UK. The Creative Director, Maia Norman, is a sportswoman and a fashion lover. And also more. She loves arts so each collection is the result of a collaboration with the brand and some talented artist.
Amy Powney is the Head Designer since 2010. She always pays attention to mix artists’ creations with luxe textiles and sportwear details. And I think that this creative team is making a gorgeous job!Before my arrive in Doha I used to buy Mother of Pearl on ssense.com
or on shopbop.com
, but now I see that it’s also sold in the Middle East. For example at S*uce
or at Harvey Nichols
. Good for me!
