MOJEH’s Editor in Chief Mojeh Izadpanah introduces the July/August 2021 issue and shares her summer essentials

Contrary to summers past, the strategic thinking that is now required to plan one’s summer holiday has certainly gone up a notch. Unlike last summer, (which I for one want to file away and forget), borders have opened, and we can travel again. Not only can we book an international ticket, but the UAE is back to bustling and open for business. This special issue is dedicated to travel in the here and now. Our feature The Road To Freedom gives all the intel you need on where UAE residents can travel and the good news is, places like Madrid, Crete and Venice are on the list. If getting on a plane is not in your plans, turn to Members Only for our ‘members only’ guide to the UAE, which lists all the activities, spa stays and luxury staycations you need to get your time-off taken care of.

Even though the sun is shining hotter than ever outside, the Pre- Fall collections are sitting pretty in-store and MOJEH‘s report on the best pieces to buy right now will minimise your mall time. If shopping online is more your thing, add to your bag (and get your suitcase sorted) with all the holiday essentials a girl could need at NET-A-PORTER.

Planning your beauty bag is just as vital as the all-important swimsuit, summer dress and sunglasses, so head to our beauty section for the latest sunscreens, bronzers and caviar creams to make you look relaxed and rested before you even step into a plane.

Bon Voyage and stay safe. – Mojeh Izadpanah, Editor-in-Chief of MOJEH

Editor’s Highlights

If you fancy yourself a Dior fan, a visit to the Dior and Roses exhibition is a must. The exhibition is scheduled to open at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, Normandy France until 31 October 2021 (health and safety guidelines permitting).

Temperatures might be soaring outside, but pre-fall is officially here. Valentino gets an A+ for gorgeous accessories that can be worn this season and beyond.

Editor’s Picks

I am never without a swimsuit and sundress on my summer travels, in addition to a chic cross-body so I can be hands free. I always pack sunscreens for each day, a low-heel for al fresco dinners and a beautiful fragrance which reminds me of the trip long after I am home.
