Add some edge to your wardrobe with this cool boutique Discuss this article
January is the perfect time to overhaul your wardrobe. When better than the beginning of a new year to re-invent your style a bit? And where better than home-grown boutique Eqlipse.
Founded by two Qatari sisters with a love of fashion, it’s worth seeking out for its eclectic collection of clothing and accessories. Its stock is surprisingly wide-ranging for a such a small space. We’re talking everything from beautiful ballgowns to quirky sweaters from American Retro and cutting-edge contemporary jewellery from Elle Louise Designs.
You’ll find plenty of big names on the racks, like Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang. There are also plenty of kitsch accessories from celeb-inspired, cult-favourite MuaMuaDolls (championed by the likes of Karl Lagerfeld).
But this is also the perfect place to discover up-and-coming brands and designers that you won’t find elsewhere.
Dressed-down essentials from Chaser LA sit alongside sparkly hand cuffs from designer-of-the-moment Priyanka (whose whimsical jewellery has been spotted on the likes of Cara Delevigne).
Browse tongue-in-cheek swimsuits from Shop Private Party (printed with slogans like “Bae Watch”) and vibrant two-pieces from Gypsea Swimwear, or pick up hoodies from local brands like Urban Arabian.
Whatever you walk away with, you can guarantee it will add the cool edge to your wardrobe that you’ve been looking for. And then some.
Open daily 10am-10pm. 1 La Croisette, Porto Arabia, The Pearl-Qatar, www.eqlipseqatar.com (04 414 4014).
