Unique Shopping Experience

The luxury leather goods brand LÉTRANGE established in 1838, has introduced a new service: handbag customisation. The personalisation experience lets customers create their own Attachant 10:30 or Ego Mini models. With a diverse range of colours and leathers to choose from, clients embark on a journey of self-expression. The customisation options also offer the addition of initials, precious stones, a selection of hardware, edge dying, thread colours and hot stamping. The LÉTRANGE boutique at Printemps Doha provides a captivating setting for customers to indulge in this extraordinary experience. Within this luxurious atmosphere, skilled artisans meticulously bring their visions to life in front of customers’ eyes, allowing them to participate in this one-of-a-kind creation process.

Fashion Collab

Coach has launched Coach x Observed By Us, a collection in collaboration with Los Angeles-based illustrator and designer Jessica Herschko and actor Kirsten Dunst. The capsule features the whimsical artwork of the duo, re-imagined through the lens of the house’s American design language. It showcases ready-to-wear clothes, bags, footwear and accessories that capture the collaborators’ appreciation for iconic American archetypes like T-shirts, hoodies, floral dresses and jeans – re-created with handmade touches. To compose the collection, Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers and the duo took inspiration from pieces found in Dunst’s closet, blending the playfulness and nostalgia that defines her style with the house’s legacy of craftsmanship and spirit of self-expression. The palette is inspired by Coach’s heritage colours, explored in saturated hues that convey an offbeat, youthful innocence.

Help Where It Is Needed

The London-based fashion brand with a Middle Eastern heritage, QASIMI, has launched a charity initiative to support UNICEF efforts to fight the urgent humanitarian crisis unfolding in Sudan due to the ongoing conflict. The initiative seeks to provide critical aid and resources to the affected children and families, striving to make a positive impact in the midst of challenging circumstances. To do so, the brand is donating all proceeds from the sale of the HOAG T-SHIRT through the QASIMI website to this cause. The regular fit jersey tee has Arabic text ‘A Passion For Something Absent’ digitally printed on the front and ‘As Lost As You Are’ on the back in red. This initiative bridges fashion and philanthropy, offering supporters a tangible way to contribute.

Conscious Footwear

The sports brand adidas partnered with the sustainable label Humanrace to release the Humanrace Samba Tones by Pharrel shoes in three new colourways – terracotta, charcoal and white. This luxury footwear collection continues to infuse the DNA of Humanrace through meticulous craftsmanship and materials, including premium ECCO leather. This material has a water-saving technology that salvages 20 litres per hide (hidden water is water that is not felt or seen and is required for almost every step in the production processes for many raw materials and finished products). Photographers Sheltens and Abbenes captured the essence of the collection with their signature product photography. The images contrast the new colourways with the previously launched Humanrace Samba capsule.
