This week O-Concept Store has taken delivery of something really cool, funky and natural in the form of Sunboo sunglasses from Italy.
Sunboo Sunglasses Italy now at O-Concept Store Dubai
The Sunboo project started in August 2012 with the desire to create a concept which mixes innovative style with the traditionalism of nature. When creating Sunboo the designers were inspired by five elements which had to be the soul of the project and the basis for the creation: material, lightness, prestige, passion and fashion freshness.
Thinking about these dimensions the “credo” of Sunboo was born.
Greener than a leaf
Lighter than a feather,
More Prestigious than an Oscar Award,
More Fashionable Than the Mona Lisa Smile,
More Passionate than a Marilyn Monroe kiss.
At O-Concept Store we love the design and feel of these back to nature sunglasses and we are sure you will too.

O-Concept Store is delighted to announce the arrival of the Lamli ladies range.
The Lamli ready to wear label was founded in 2010 by Lamia Al Saleh (Lam) and Linda El Shami (Li).
Inspired by the comfort of the common elements of clothing such as T shirts, shirts and sweaters, the two long time friends wanted to develop these pieces further into a more feminine level of everyday chic dresses. Taking into consideration the clean line and the perfect construction, the dresses convey the Lamli culture of simplicity, individuality, creativity and sophisticated living, with a flawless unpretentious attitude.
Lamli is a minimalist fashion clothing line that is tailored to the comfortably chic woman. Each piece is designed with room to be dressed up or dressed down reflecting your style.
Lamli is available in Toronto/Canada, Dubai/UAE and Riyadh/KSA

We have another first taking place at O-Concept Store on the 1st July 2013 when ladies fashion label Suzani launches it’s new collection exclusively with us.
We will be providing a live Twitter feed on the night but in the meantime read on to discover a little bit more about the label and the designers.
The Suzani lines are designed and produced in Amman-Jordan employing the skills of local Arab women working from their own homes and workshops with our fabric that has been carefully selected from different parts of the world and combined with our designs to create a strikingly unique and beautifully finished clothes, and accessories.
The designers Zara Gailani & Dania Kurdi took inspiration from her their own eastern roots to create a brand that embodies a “unique glam” style and answers the call for ethnic elegance. Being Jordanians with Afghani and Pakistani roots ,and the eye for authentic materials and the love for clothes that are have a modern flare to it helped bring Suzani to life.
Their timeless lines perfectly bridge Arab, Central Asia to contemporary Western fashion. Suzani in Persian language means needlework which embodies the interest in handmade and handcrafted fabrics that interest both designers. They both love that each piece of fabric carries its own rich history and story recreated into contemporary accessories.
They both supervise the product from A-Z from design, supplying the material, production, managing their product, marketing, sales even packaging. They both enjoy their downtown shopping trips to gather material, walking through the busy crowds and listening to the music along the way and the thrill of finding material or accessories that will compliment their product is always a happy bonus. They have met few interesting people along the way, learned a lot and are enjoying the journey of it.

Deana Shaaban’s designs are each unique and unrepeated because the brand was founded on the belief that not every gown suits every woman, but that every woman is unique in her own right and the gown that adorns her should be true to that belief. Her belief is that when a woman is draped in a dress, the focus should not be on the dress, but rather on the woman and together, both gown and woman, create a harmonious masterpiece. The fabrics in each design are selectively hand-picked from the finest material of various countries. Each design is an exquisite combination of a thoughtful drape, flattering fit and the complementing plethora of fine fabric forming masterpiece of one self in the most elegant of forms.
