    Watch and learn 

    By Charlotte Van den Broucque

    What better way to spend an afternoon than a long lunch in the luxurious surroundings of the One&Only Palace hotel and being shown the latest, beautifully displayed, Versace and Salvatore Ferragamo watches?  Fresh from Basel, both collections feature stunning updates and additions for the new season.


    VERSACE Vanity collection

    Timepieces from the Gancino Sparkling collection by Ferragamo boast encrusted bezels and coloured stones including topaz and garnets. Combined with a double wrap-around strap in traditional tan and white leather or t hot pink and bright orange, the effect is ideal for those who like to stand out. More sparkle comes with the Idillio range with sapphire-, ruby- and diamond-covered faces and a subtle ‘galaxy’ arrangement of diamonds across the dial.

    For men, the F-80 collection provides an opportunity to own a sporty watch reinforced with carbon fibre. Pick from classic black or brighter options, where colourful second hands or hour markers match bright rubber straps in yellow, blue and orange. Alternatively, the ‘Colour on time’ project for men and women allows shoppers to choose different design specifications for their own F-80s using a special app in-store. Add gemstones for extra glitz and engrave the back of the case with a personal message.

    From Versace comes a combination of class and glamour to cater to a wide spectrum of tastes. For men, the limited-edition Versace Character Automatic boasts classic good looks. Combining a stainless steel case with rose-gold details on the hands, indexes, buttons and crown makes for a sophisticated accessory. The Character Quartz is a sportier, more contemporary watch with a two-tone black and gun-metal dial that has three counters and a grooved rubber strap.

    Taking its lead from the springtime hues seen on the Versace S/S ’12 runway and clothing collection, the Vanity watch range features sky blue, mauve, white and pistachio green straps and faces. Bezels are adorned with either diamonds or raised stud detailing and the famous Versace emblem (Medusa’s head) adorns the strap.

    With many more besides, it’s well worth a trip to Paris Gallery to take a look at the superb timepieces that both Versace and Salvatore Ferragamo have to offer this season.

    Meet Angela Missoni 

    By Naomi Chadderton, Fashion Editor, Concierge

    I’ve long been a fan of Angela Missoni’s artistic talent. So when I was invited to have lunch with the design guru herself earlier this week, I jumped at the chance to pick the brains of arguably one of the most talented Creative Directors on the scene.

    For those who don’t know, Missoni is an Italian fashion house famous worldwide for its stunning knitwear and playful patterns. In town to host an exclusive preview of the Missoni Pre-Fall 2012 collection at Boutique 1, myself and a select group of media were invited to Salmontini in Mall of the Emirates to grab a bite with Angela before the event, where we talked about everything from fashion and to holiday homes in Lake Como and her gorgeous daughter Margherita’s upcoming nuptials (she’s set to marry a long-term friend of the family next month).

    When it comes to personalities, they don’t get more welcoming than Angela Missoni. Bubbly, bright and super-friendly, she oozes a familiarity I suspect you won’t find with many world-class designers and she was an absolute pleasure to chat to. As for the collection, think everything from over-sized cardigans to wide jackets and skirts in a delectable colour palette of grey, purple and earth tones. I’ll definitely be saving up for a little piece of my own Missoni from this stunning collection.

    Dubai shopping guide 

    Shopping in Dubai often does not feel like shopping at all. The sprawling malls are so huge and so elaborately designed that often they can feel like a separate city in themselves. As well as all the stores you could possibly imagine, the malls also have restaurants and cafés which draw both shoppers and Dubai residents meeting with friends. Children are well looked after, with play centres for all ages at all of the major malls. There is everything from soft play areas for toddlers to themed thrill rides for teenagers. Amazing aquariums, stunning ski slopes and vast entertainment venues make a trip to the mall more than a shopping expedition.
