Event: Athnain Magazine Launch – Kuwait’s Fashionable & Stylish Affair!

I was invited to attend last night’s launch of  “Athnain” magazine at Arabana Warehouse.  The event was a successful & stylish affair attended by Kuwait’s most popular socialites, fashion icons, bloggers, artists and stylists. It was nice to get out & mingle in such an artistic environment infused with so much self expression in various forms. The magazine itself is a unique concept embodying true style & creativity from what I have seen so far, focusing on artistic visionaries & cultured young people.

Athnain was founded by Yousif Abdulsaid & Yousif Al Taher and will be sold exclusively at 4 Boutique in Kuwait for KD 4

Rihanna for River Island Summer Collection: In Stores Today

Rihanna‘s second collection in collaboration with River Island was officially launched today in all River Islands stores world wide. To be honest, Rihanna’s first collection failed to impress me and so did this collection as well, mainly because it isn’t my style. I stopped by to check it out at the Avenues Mall earlier and her summer collection is characteristic of her style; casual & tom-boyish. You can view the full collection here.

Below are the highlights of what was in store:
