Editor-in-Chief Mojeh Izadpanah unveils MOJEH’s summer issue

Welcome to our summer issue. As the sun blazes over the Middle East, we present a meticulously curated collection of trends and destinations ready to elevate your high-summer season to new and unparalleled heights.

Start by immersing yourself in a swimwear edit that proudly features regionally-based, female-led brands. It not only champions local talent but also offers an array of options, whether you’re seeking something that simply looks and feels good or are on the hunt for a piece that considers saving the very oceans you’re swimming in.

For those enchanting nights out at sea, our high jewellery edit is an absolute must-see. This month, we feature the latest dazzling launches from Bulgari, Christian Dior and Cartier, the latter of which has just opened its glittering new boutique in Bodrum — a destination on everyone’s travel list this season. In Kinetic Energy, MOJEH takes Chanel’s new Haute Joaillerie Sport collection for a spin, where the pinnacle of the fashion world receives an athletic makeover, revolutionising our perceptions of diamonds and gemstones.

Planning a getaway? We’ve handpicked the most exclusive beachside escapes close to home, perfect for a rejuvenating break without the burden of long-haul travel. From the Maldives and Turkey to something even closer to home, these nearby havens offer the ideal respite from city life, providing the luxury and tranquillity you crave. Additionally, our guide to the fragrances that deserve a coveted spot in your travel wardrobe will ensure you leave a memorable impression wherever your adventures take you.

We are equally delighted to unveil our cover shoot set against the enchanting backdrop of Waddesdon Manor in Oxfordshire, UK. This joyful story celebrates the quintessential essence of summer, showcasing ensembles from Bicester Village’s edit of designer labels. Their collaboration — aptly named Gardens and Gatherings — with Waddesdon Manor and its neighbour Blenheim Palace seamlessly blends heritage and style in a truly picturesque setting.

Indulge in the adventure of summer with us, and let this issue be your guide to a season of discovery.
