Dubai is known as a shopping destination all over the world and there are numerous luxury and high street brands featured in it’s extravagant malls. When it comes to a store that is unique to Dubai, there is none more famous than S*uce with it’s curated collection of designer clothing and accessories.
Today I visited their lifestyle brand: The Design Shop by S*uce. Being a design student, and the product of a Middle East expat upbringing, I was fascinated by the contemporary pieces and local design talent.
One needs to walk around the store several times to fully absorb the collection and appreciate the beauty, and sometimes humour, of what is on display. I spot a large decorative bowl with the signature handles of Omani designer Asmaa Collectionz. I have a similar one sitting in my apartment in London, it was a treasure acquired before leaving Muscat several years ago.
The store showcases handmade stools and tables, 2D art, Tom Dixon candles, beard combs for the fuzzy men in you life, stunning cushions with stunning graphics by Rana Salam and everything in between.
If you’re a tourist, or even a local, this is a chance to purchase something from the contemporary design portfolio developing in the region.
