Treat yourself to an opulent evening at the Bulgari Resort this Ramadan. The Bulgari Majlis returns for its second year, this time on the breathtaking terrace of Il Caffé overlooking the resort’s private marina. Dine for Iftar or suhoor under the mesmerising lights, surrounded by textiles inspired by the Bulgari campaign ‘Celebrating Ramadan in Full Colour” with the elegant backdrop of the sprawling resort. The buffet offering presents both Italian fare and elevated regional dishes across hot and cold mezze, starters, main courses, twelve live cooking stations and – most importantly – decadent desserts, all to be enjoyed on Bulgari crockery. The best part? The menu changes daily, meaning more than one visit should be on the cards. Don’t mind if we do. Open until 9 April, book now

Greener Pastures

Typically, cruise collections are presented in sun-drenched locations reminiscent of the destinations the clothes would be worn in. Scotland does not often come to mind when sun is mentioned, however Dior has announced it will be showcasing its cruise 2025 collection in the gardens of Drummond Castle in Perthshire. The historic site was chosen as an homage to the Maison’s ties with the United Kingdom; Christian Dior debuted the Summer 1955 collection in the Gleneagles Hotel and was fascinated by the country’s enchanting gardens. Maria Grazia Chiuri often creates collections inspired by the show locations and in collaboration with local artisans – the cruise 2024 show in Mexico incorporated traditional embroidery and commented on Frieda Kahlo’s legacy – therefore MOJEH predicts plenty of sumptuous fabrics and historic prints come 3 June.

A Warm Welcome

Zimmermann opened its first regional boutique this week, setting up shop in Dubai’s Mall of Emirates. Minimalist architecture, clean lines and a tropical palette balance the eccentricity of the House’s print-filled collections throughout three retail spaces – an elaborate entranceway, intimate lounge area complete with terrazzo floors and private fitting rooms decked out with Florentine apothecary display cabinets. The boutique features the spring/summer 2024 ready-to-wear collection alongside pieces that are exclusive to the region.
