Whether you’re a guest or host, these contemporary pieces will show how much you care.


Just in time for summer, Dubai recently celebrated the launch of Maison Christian Dior at Bloomingdale’s in The Dubai Mall. Since 2006, François Demachy has imbued his spirit into the Dior perfumes he has composed. Today, the expansion of Dior has allowed him to continue his forays into the inimitable world of scents – with candles, soaps and, later this year, liquid soaps. Guests can choose the colour of their own wrapping cord and Christian Dior logo ‘seal’ when they gift-wrap their items. For something special, surround yourself with the Oud fragrance; it speaks to the dynamic spirit of the region and its singular beauty.

RM 67-02

Thin, lightweight, coloured, elegant and athletic, the RM 67-02 is the watch for any situation. Breaking with precedent, Richard Mille designed this model so that it can be adapted to various sporting disciplines. Together with tennis player Alexander Zverev, the RM 67-02 timepiece will now enter a new era. Zverev is now ranked no. 3 in the world, and will test the resistance of his RM 67-02 – featuring Carbon TPT and red Quartz TPT materials – on the natural laboratories of tennis courts around the globe. The automatic calibre watch has been designed to handle any situation in top-level sport, thanks to featherweight 32-gram construction and ‘comfort’ strap that adapts to individual morphology.
