April 2023 Editor’s Letter: Reflections

2 min read

Travel, treasures and trends are compiled into MOJEH April 2023, equipping you with the tools to tackle the whirlwind months to come

This month’s MOJEH is all about fabled fashion and pieces that set pulses racing. Cover model Ophelie Guillermand shines in a mystical Georges Hobeika bodysuit, engulfed in gemstones and the tranquil hue of river blue. In Golden, we celebrate Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri’s ode to the region — bountiful dresses, skirts and jackets littered in the sparkling stuff. Mystic makes a case for an unexpected summer wardrobe brimming with darker hues, lots of luscious layers and, most importantly, plenty of diamonds and gemstones. And in In Between The Lines, MOJEH gets a first look at Chanel’s horological must-haves for the year ahead — all at once joyous, time-honoured and well and truly investment-worthy. For those of you considering Eid breaks or simply planning summer jaunts ahead of time, Healing Hangouts and Wonders tap in to new travel trends, including a personal favourite, wellness travel.

Reflections. I think about that word and its meaning a lot. If I spend too much time looking back, am I robbing myself of the now? If I sit in the past, do I become ill-prepared for the future? Or am I merely analysing the past in order to pave a better tomorrow? If there were ever a time to reflect, it’s the Holy Month. You might not find all the answers to life’s questions here in these pages — but hopefully carving out some time for yourself can only help. Here’s wishing you a blessed Holy Month and all that your heart desires.
