Add a designer beach escape to your weekend itinerary…
After luxury fashion takeovers made waves in Europe last summer, brands are now turning their attention to Dubai, splashing the city’s beach hotspots with monogram-branded sunloungers and parasols.
For a day of sun, sea, and sophistication, slip into your finest beachwear and choose your favorite spot…
Cloud 22 x Dolce&Gabbana
Atlantis The Royal’s now iconic Cloud 22 has been given a Dolce Vita-inspired makeover, with fashion brand Dolce&Gabbana dressing the luxe pool club up in its iconic blue majolica print. In collaboration with Ounass, the D&G glow-up blends the brand’s high-fashion credentials with the gorgeous elegance of Cloud 22 – creating a takeover that demands to be photographed. 90 metres up, the floating beds, cabanas, and sun loungers have all been dressed in the striking new print. And further adding to the luxe takeover, there’s now beach balls and rings in the same instantly recognisable print.
