A new frontier in bohemian dreams - available to shop at Boutique 1

Cue the sand dune safaris: Isabel Marant’s autumn winter collection is quite the cool-kid’s getup for all that rural roving — ahem, desert glamping — the ‘cold-weather’ months in the Middle East brings. All joking aside though, Marant’s wanderlust-inspired aesthetic revered by the effortless-chic set the world over is right in line for evolving a beat-the-heat, boho-leaning wardrobe preferred by resorting GCC girls. Basically, it’s autumn’s answer to free-spirited style with the hint of cosiness craved during the cooler air months.

Mining America’s iconic Wild Wild West, Marant channels the cowboys, cowgirls, and pioneers that traversed Death Valley and the prairie lands alike resulting in Southwestern and Pendleton motifs brought to life in chunky oversized knits, denim shirting, graphic and paisley prints, delicate handcrafted lace, copious amounts of fringe trim, and, of course, Marant’s signature Western-inspired boots (thigh-high and ankle styles) updated with metal toe caps.

But even the most far flung nomad has to come home at some point. And as Marant’s signature Parisian la bohème point of view is sometimes the joie de vivre that can only be experienced on one's home terf, there are also plenty of high-shine, sequined-embellished dresses that exude coquette attitude fit for the region. With the festive season on the horizon, the party invitations will roll in and a whole new sparkling evening cityscape, with requisite wardrobe, will be there to explore.
