Eastern Mangroves Promenade gets better and better: Carluccio’s now open
An opera singer with a plate of appetisers marks the opening of Carluccio's at the Eastern Mangroves Promenade.

Abu Dhabi’s second Carluccio’s is now open in the gorgeous Eastern Mangroves Promenade (the first is in The Galleria, Al Maryah Island) and it’s about as lovely a spot for a meal or a coffee or a drink as you will find in the city. Although Anthony Carluccio was supposed to be on hand for Tuesday’s night opening, a routine visit to the doctor revealed the 76-year-old Italian needed a pacemaker. All is fine though, and in a video message he promised to stop by the capital soon. Guests, who nibbled on cheeses, chicken liver and mini-pizzas, were also treated [...]

Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection for Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s new creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere, had some big shoes to fill after the departure of Marc Jacobs. Ghesquiere, formerly at Balenciaga, showcased his first collection for the French fashion house yesterday in Paris.

We thought the gracious letter Ghesquiere left on each seat for all of the show guests was a lovely touch – he said, “I salute the work of Marc Jacobs, whose legacy I wholeheartedly hope to honour,” and thanked his team for their support. What do you think of Ghesquiere’s [...]
