The belt bag is a new expression of what Celine does best, a perfectly balanced day bag with striking good looks, reassuringly classic proportions, and simple yet eye catching detailing.

Diane von Furstenberg
Diane von Furstenberg’s latest film campaign stars supermodel Karlie Kloss and the new DVF Secret Agent handbag. In the film Karlie Kloss goes incognito as a sultry secret agent transitioning seamlessly from day to night with the help of a handsome accomplice, her multi-faceted DVF Secret Agent bag, and a series of standout looks from the autumn Seduction collection.

New to Yas Mall in September, Maje’s latest collection allows us to hold on to summer freedom and holiday grace. With a focus on relaxed yet elegant looks, the signature must-haves include long belts embellished with pompoms, huge ponchos, thick and comforting wool coats and cosy sweaters with bold fringes. Maje is the chic Parisian label launched and designed by Judith Milgrom, who believes every garment has a soul and can tell a story. The new line apparently, signifies an ‘elopement to Manhattan’.

Marios Schwab
Dark and romantic, Marios Schwab’s AW15-16 collection features billowing organza, satin and mousseline in a colour palette inspired by the bold and emotionally charged work of artist Francis Bacon. Somewhat grisly, the period silhouettes are accented with crimson and gold, a nod to the human anatomy; from the skeleton to the veins. The gothic sensibility of the collection is mixed with delicate details – puffed shoulders, soft pleats and synched waists – for an enchanting Grimm’s fairytale vibe.

Massimo Dutti
Eclectic, casual and authentic, three words that perfectly define the city of New York and everything from which Massimo Dutti drew inspiration to create the New Limited Edition Collection. The New York City Collection is undoubtedly this brand’s classiest and most urban and minimalist collection, inspired by the ’60s and ’70s, where grey loose pieces stand out for their versatility and comfort. These essentials put the spotlight on lifestyles based on movement, comfort and lightweight clothing, without ever sacrificing their chic charm.

Max Mara
The snap of cooler air ushers in a cool new mood to Abu Dhabi. Take a stroll in town by the Corniche or maybe wander in the mountains near Al Ain wrapped up in casual layers made sharp for city living and adventure travel. Boyish touches mix with countryside boho for this season’s polished, chic weekend wardrobe. Think ‘formal informality’.

Temperley London
Exemplifying modern sophistication, the Temperley London Knit collection features a relaxed, boxy shape and compelling tribal-inspired geometric patterns. Supremely soft and universally flattering, the statement autumn jackets, dresses and capes are woven into a fine-gauge jacquard knit and create a bold silhouette. Wear over neutral separates and ankle boots for a head-turning autumn look.

Zadig & Voltaire

Get ready to rebel and discover cropped overalls and leather dresses, fitted tops with ultra-long sleeves, curved hemlines, short sweaters that show off the shirt underneath and warm hoodies and boyfriend jackets paired with wool jersey baby doll dresses. This is a strong look with cashmere, leather, and knits of rabbit, raccoon, fox, flecked alpaca and python skin.
