3 Best Capsule Collections Dedicated To UAE’s 50th National Day
From stunning bangles to artfully crafted shoes and bags, these limited-edition treasures will stylishly show your love for the country…
UAE National Day is fast approaching, and as this year comes with loads of special Golden Jubilee events, making it far from ordinary, we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate. For patriotic fashionistas, the best way to get noticed while marking the 50th Anniversary of the UAE this weekend is to splash out on a limited-edition piece that pays tribute to the rich heritage of the country.
Here are the top standout, well-crafted capsule collections that will help accessory enthusiasts enjoy the festivities in unique style during the coming celebrations.
Christian Louboutin’s “The Golden Capsule” collection marries hand-placed rich Emirati textiles, ornaments and objects with materials from previous Louboutin collections. The global exclusive collection inspired by the UAE includes a comprehensive collection of unique shoes and bags, like the “Hot Chick" pump, the contemporary “Just Nothing” mule and the “Loubi54” clutch, that also doubles as a crossbody bag.
Combining the Emirati codes with a Parisian twist, the collection weaves gold accents, such as coins and embroidery, across all styles, to honour the distinguished period of the country’s achievements. Sadu, the traditional technique of hand-woven embroidery, fishing nets that nod to traditional pearl diving and The Abra, the UAE’s oldest form of public transformation in the UAE, can also be found on many styles. Plus, the ever-popular Jalabiya is found in the collection in a fun pop-art version of red and white polka dots.
Jimmy Choo x Ounass
Jimmy Choo has created a limited-edition capsule collection, found on Ounass, inspired by the colours of the UAE flag and the Golden Jubilee. For the milestone, the new collection’s footwear consists of the high-heeled “Saeda” pumps, available in snakeskin-effect or off-white leather. The pumps have a refined pointed toe and a wrap-around delicate, jewellery-like crystal chain. The “K-Slide 50” mules, meanwhile, come in snake-print leather, as well as orange or neutral Elphane leather. As well as a sleek heel, the mules have a trending square toe and comfortably wide vamp strap.
The Made in Italy collection also includes must-have arm candy like the “Skyline Sweetie” clutch crafted from glitter acrylic. The minimalist horizontal panelled design features a Dubai and Abu Dhabi skyline design. Another showstopper is the “Madeline” crossbody, which comes in a vibrant orange hue, with an embellished buckle, classic structured shape and chain and leather shoulder strap. Additionally, there’s a chain strap wallet with a sleek rectangular shape, accented with a crystal-inlaid buckle on the flap. It’s available in luxurious snake-embossed leather and smooth off-white calf leather.
Terzihan x Al Fardan
Al Fardan Jewellery has collaborated with Turkish designer house Terizhan to launch an innovative collection of luxurious UAE National Day bangles. The delicate rose gold bangles feature a tasteful combination of diamonds and the iconic colours of the UAE flag while using unique enamel technique. The green, white, black and red shades of the flag are immediately recognisable without being too brash, while the vibrant pops of colour also perfectly accentuate the precious diamonds and distinctive textures. There are only 50 of these special bangles, which come with individual serial numbers.
Exclusively available at Al Fardan Jewellery, the expertly crafted timeless and sophisticated bangles are perfect for every-day wear. What’s more, the chic and elegant design complements any style of fashion or personality and makes it easy to stack with other jewels.
