Our second feature for for the Financial Times’ Haute Seat blog, the online home of luxury magazine How To Spend It, has just been published. This time we chose to talk about one of our all time favourite jewellery boutiques.
Octium, Kuwait is the product of the visionary husband and wife duo Fahad Al Hajiri and Alanood Al Sabah who together with leading design talent Jaime Hayon set out to create a retail environment that oozes style and sophistication. The striking showcase draws inspiration from the art-nouveau and art-deco eras and blurs the boundaries between art, decoration and design.
You can read more about the stunning boutique and its inspirational founders on the FT‘s site – but proceed with caution – you’ll want to book a weekend getaway in Kuwait if only to experience the boutique!
