Juicy Couture’s Glam Abaya
Once again, Juicy Couture have started a new trend, collaborating with Majid Al Futtaim Fashion, they have designed a beautiful and glamorous abaya, made from my favourite soft fabric – their incredible velveteen satin!
During my University days the LA based brand Juicy Couture launched their velour tracksuits. I had them in every colour, for lounging about at home, running to classes, and for weekend trips to the cinema with my girls. Fast forward 14 years and Juicy has started a new revolution. As with the tracksuits, the back of the abaya has the Juicy Couture crown with over 1,250 crystal rhinestones and gold dome studs.
There is also a chic matching sheila with gold piping around the edges of both the sheila and abaya. Juicy Couture’s signature glam has finally met traditional Arabic style to create this abaya.
I matched my abaya with a few different Juicy Couture looks from their fall-winter collection, to wear underneath. I wore a beautiful black jumpsuit with its own lace top. I accessorised the look with Juicy Couture jewellery – charm bracelets, red enamel bangles and a charm necklace and studded earrings- to add more glam! I wore this outfit beneath my Juicy Couture abaya for afternoon tea at Gossip Desserts in Dubai. As soon as I sat down, the girls at the table beside me asked excitedly “has Juicy really made an abaya?!”
I was so comfortable in my Abaya, that I took it with me to Riyadh. Where I wore it with my other outfits from the Juicy Couture collection. My next outfit was a navy blue silk dress embellished with black crystals – which is very elegant and flows in all the right places. I wore this beneath my abaya to brunch at the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh. As I walked through the hotel, every few minutes ladies would comment on my abaya. I kept smiling and saying – “Yes, it’s a Juicy abaya!”.
Finally I wore lilac patterned Juicy Couture slacks, with a plain white silk shirt. I paired this with a black and lilac bedazzled jacket and lilac and tweed bag bag. I wore this beneath my abaya and sheila for bowling in Riyadh. It was so comfortable, that I even managed to get a strike!
Once again Juicy Couture has hit the spot. With their glam and beautifully soft abaya and sheila.
