Last night shoeRA attended “Bullets & Butterflies” grand opening in Mercato Mall. It was elegant and stylish evening hosted by Hind and Alia Bin Kherbash, two lovely ladies standing behind the concept store.
Bullets and Butterflies are here to give a chance to brands that were still unknown to the region, and a chance to local audience to purchase and wear something different, made in small series and/or hand made – like these daring spiked shoes above.
Luxury items for men and women are ranging from ready-to-wear, perfumes and shoes to accessories, leather goods and lifestyle accents.
The Dubai-based boutique is inspired by the glam/rock movement! I have discovered some super cool pieces…
Sisters Alia and Hind say they intend to convert their passion into a fashion store that sets benchmarks, pushes boundaries and leaves the fashion world yearning for more, “We truly started working on the boutique around a year and a half ago when both of us felt the need for Dubai to have a store that stocks showpieces for those who really like to creatively express themselves through fashion”.
“This is not just a hobby, not just another store selling clothes,” remarks Hind, “this is a concept, a visual that takes artistic creativity to new heights.”
“We are telling a story, building a legacy,” adds Alia, “we are showing that if we take our surroundings, take our energy and our passion, we can create a fashion concept that has no comparison.”
shoeRA recommends to visit the store in Mercato Mall and surprise yourself with an outstanding gift for the New Year!
