Launching the latest in fashion is eponymous with the Harvey Nichols brand name. This summer, Harvey Nichols Kuwait is raising the bar with innovative fashions and incredible designers right here in Kuwait! Suited to please the styles of its sophisticated shoppers, get ready to meet three new amazing designers: Stone Island, Mawi, and Chantecaille.
Upon making its debut at London Fashion Week in 2003 with a collection of jewelry and handbags, Mawi’s designs are a tribute to its creator’s artistic vision in delivering the ultimate mélange of traditional and contemporary aesthetics.
This season, Mawi ventures into the world of soft accessories with a collection of luxury clutches, statement pieces that echo with opulence, melding cutting-edge modern style with traditional influences. Neon glamor and structural chic are the key elements within this line of luxury clutches. Highlights in the collection include a bright green glitter clutch toughened up with the addition of faceted acrylic spikes, whilst pitch-black teardrop crystals and gold tube decorate a sparkling fuchsia two-pocket design.
Also celebrating the brand’s 10th anniversary and moving towards a second decade of luxurious vision, this new line of clutches incorporates Swarovski elements, which is also true to Mawi’s signature style. Expect sumptuous jewels at the heart of this collection, making each clutch an absolute collector’s item.
One of the newest brands to arrive at the Harvey Nichols Kuwait Menswear department, Stone Island conveys sportswear chic in innovative ways. For avid Stone Island fans, this is brilliant news. Yet, for those who aren’t aware of what this inventive brand has to offer, it is a constant dedication to textile research and innovation that will turn you into a cult follower.
Founded in Italy in 1982 by graphic designer Massimo Osti, the label was then sold to Carlo Rivetti in 1993. Rivetti went on to instill a tradition of research and experimentation, always striving for uniqueness in design and integrity in production. Year after year, investigations into transforming and emphasizing fibers and fabrics are constantly in motion, leading to the discovery and production of new techniques. Stone Island is a pioneer in the field of innovative sportswear, using materials and production techniques that have never been used before in the clothing industry.
In celebrating its 30th anniversary collection, Rivetti revived the company’s archives, blending in references from military gear and work-wear with lighter fabrics and new materials. A shining example includes the thermo reflective jacket, which reacts to light and changes color according to temperature.
A beautiful alliance between nature and science, Chantecaille is the preeminent luxury brand for skincare and beautifying cosmetics. With a beauty and cosmetics range that boasts high concentrations of natural botanicals, this line stands out for its extensive research and technological innovation invested in each and every ground-breaking formula—a must have addition to every discerning woman’s beauty ritual.
With ingredients so pure at the core of its product lines, the skin is nourished and revitalized, holistically treating the body and the spirit at the same time. Targeting inflammation, also scientifically recognized as the main cause of aging, Chantecaille product ranges retain healing properties based on plant-based formulas. These reduce the aging effects of inflammation across different layers of the skin, often penetrating below the surface with innovative Nano-technology.
However, this doesn’t exclude the fact that Chantecaille believes in combining advanced technologies with centuries-old traditions in skincare. From Biotechnology, Chinese medicine, aromatherapy to European flower pharmacology; all of these fields contribute to the company’s signatory blend of natural elements and science. In doing so, Chantecaille offers extraordinary results to modern women who demand effective, high-performing products that are also health enhancing and efficient. More importantly, Chantecaille products aren’t tested on animals, contain no animal derivatives, lanolin, or mineral derivatives. All skincare products are free of synthetic colors and fragrances, and do not contain any sulfate detergents, phthalates, nor petrochemicals.
As nature lies at the essence of this brand’s vision, Chantecaille insists on giving back to the bountiful nature that serves as its muse. From launching the Butterfly eye shadow collection to help fund the protection of the Monarch butterfly’s winter habitats in 2005, to other ‘cause-metics collections, Chauntecaille’s passion and commitment to nature grows stronger with every year.
