What ACNE did for Swedish fashion export Byredo has achieved in terms of scents - the Swedish house of perfume that is modern, minimalistic and way ahead of it's time is a best seller in 25 countries and carried by department stores like Colette in Paris and Barneys in NY amongst others.
I have been a fan of the brand ever since the launch 5 years ago and so I was thrilled to hear that Paris Gallery were bringing the scents to the UAE. I was even more thrilled to hear that I was invited to a lunch with the founder of the brand - Ben Gorham - at the Ritz Carlton hotel in DIFC.
Ben is a very interesting person and we share a few common interests such as surfing, our fondness for tattoo's and general hippie mannerism. Needless to say we had a lot to talk about and I received a bottle of one of my favourite Byredo scents - the musky and smokey Gypsy Water. LOVE.
Weekend low key in terms of outfits (there was a birthday on a yacht but the bubbly distracted me from photography attempts.
I did however enjoy flaunting around this lime coloured arm candy from D&G and my-wardrobe.com. I'll be wearing it a lot this summer so expect a few more inspiringoutfits soon!
Ah - the most romantic thing happened: since the moon was full last night I asked Le BF if he could take me to a rooftop where we could watch it together.
I asked for A roof and I got THE roof - we watched the full moon from the 127th floor of the worlds tallest building; the Burj Khalifa. Needless to say it was majestic and I left one loved up Cookie.
Enough about me - how have you been??
