Zahr Art – Where Fashion Meets Art
Dubai: Zahr Art welcomes you to a world of eclectic, emerging and established designers. From unique jewellery and handbags, to homeware, Zahr Art showcases collections from thought-provoking, innovative and international designers. This is an original online boutique, full of artistic creations and social responsibility.
Offering unique and artistic pieces whilst also shedding light on ethical fashion where possible, Zahr Art’s designers were selected thanks to their unique and positive contribution to the world; some support culture and heritage, some help to empower underprivileged women by donating a percentage of sales to an NGO, and others by creating their beautiful items in an eco-conscious way.
Here’s this season’s top picks from Zahr Art:
Popinjay is a premium handbag label that works with 150 female artisans in Pakistan. Each silk hand-embroidered leather handbag has been made with luxurious craftsmanship, reviving ancient techniques and enabling livelihood for the women hard at work creating them. The black and white Kufic Quilted Fold-over Clutch (AED 1,085) is a perfect day-to-night handbag made from 100% pure calf leather and a satin silk lined interior.
And what about some dazzling blue? Handmade from genuine leather, this avant-garde Large Blue Asymmetrical Clutch from Georgina Skalidi (AED 730) is the perfect fashion forward accessory. Blue covers the body of the bag with wooden detailing giving it a unique contemporary feel.
Zahr Art stocks many unique earrings too. The Fern Earrings (AED 899) by celebrity favourite Elizabeth Cole are an eye-catching example. Accessorise like the stars with these fern leaf shaped earrings, decorated with Swarovski crystals in stunning pacific opal. Handmade in the U.S, Cole’s pieces reassuringly frequent the likes of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
The tribal Sabratha Gold Necklace (AED 1,375) is another statement piece, designed by A Peace Treaty, a label that creates employment for talented artisans working amidst socio-economic instability. These award-winning pieces of jewellery have been seen on top HBO show ‘Girls’ and on celebrities such as Halle Berry, Clare Danes and Jennifer Lopez.
Designer, Zariin, is modern, yet classic, specialising in boho-esque cuffs, bright coloured stone rings and raw gypsy-chic earrings. Launched by Indian sisters Vidhi and Mamta Gupta in 2010, their designs are a beautiful blend of their global travels and their roots in India, with a percentage of all sales going to the SOS Children’s Villages of India. The stunning “The Meandering” Gold Cuff (AED 998) is 22kt gold plated with multi-coloured uncut stones that make the perfect arm candy!
