Ditch Boring Grey For Refreshing Pink

22 pieces that prove men can wear pink.

Romantic and charming, pink has become increasingly popular among men. Worn without taboo today, a man in pink communicates confidence and style. Granted, of course, you wear it right! Just look at Chadwick Boseman at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, or Timothée Chalamet in a deep berry shade.

The first step is to choose the right shade for you. Pink can be a very flattering shade for every skin tone. Darker complexions do well with brighter shades, such as hot pink, while paler skin tones should opt for peach, apricot and other lighter pink hues.

One of the easiest ways to inject a pop of pink into an outfit is with a shirt. In many cases, a pale pink shirt can replace a white or pale blue shirt to match your existing suits. They work well with a blue suit, particularly on the darker side. For a weekend look, simple pair a pink top with white chinos and loafers. However, with no shortage of pink fashion items to shop, you can just as easily work pink into your wardrobe with a sweater, hoodie or even jacket.

5 Podcasts Defying Stereotypes about the Middle East

Headphones at the ready.


Considering the recent revival of hakawati, the ancient Arab art of storytelling, it’s no surprise that the podcast scene in the Middle East is booming. According to data released by markettiers MENA, there are 5.1 million regular podcast listeners in Saudi Arabia and a further 1.3 million regular podcast listeners in the UAE – numbers that are only rising as we speak. As for the podcasts that are helping defy stereotypes about the region on a global scale? Here are our favourites.

Bedouin’s Coffee Corner

Airing from the heart of the Middle East and hosted by Saudi journalist Sabal Almadi, Bedouin’s Coffee Corner is anchored in highlighting initiatives, progressive movements, and change-makers in the region. The episodes introduce local talents (photographers, designers, makeup artists, and more), helping fellow Arabs feel proud of their heritage and encouraging them to embrace their rich history. Simultaneously, the platform shines a light on the side of the Middle East that’s not seen in mainstream media, highlighting its cultural diversity while overcoming the most common prejudices around Arab culture. Win-win.

Listen to Bedouin’s Coffee Corner here.

Kerning Cultures

The first venture-funded podcast company in the Middle East, Kerning Cultures is also female-led, raising the bar for audio storytelling in the MENA region. Offering an alternative view on the Arab world, it spans the spectrum of what’s happening here and now – past episodes have explored the growing interest in K-pop in the region, racism towards black Arabs, the journey of Port of Mokha coffee from Yemen to a hipster coffee shop in America, and more. More recently, Kerning Cultures has signed with CAA, which will work with it to expand its projects into TV, film, and publishing.

Listen to Kerning Cultures here.

Pass The Kabsa

Twice a week, the three ‘Kabsa Boys’ sit down to discuss trends, pop culture, relationships, music, and current affairs – and virtually no topic is off-limits, resulting in raw and uncensored views about life in Saudi Arabia. Vocal about its mission to serve the culture and people of the kingdom, it encourages its audiences to embrace their thoughts and individuality in order to become leaders and help inspire change, never shying away from the problems faced by the country’s creative community. The result? Insights that are brutally honest with a side of humour.

Listen to Pass The Kabsa here.

Rep

Over two decades after 9/11, renowned journalist and activist Noor Tagouri has set out to examine the misrepresentation of Muslims in US media and how this impacts American culture through her recently launched podcast, Rep. A thoughtful investigation of our beliefs and understandings – and how they exist within the dynamic of politics, pop culture, and public opinion – it features well-known faces (Brother Ali and Huma Abedin included) alongside stories that are deeply personal to Tagouri’s family history, like the 1986 US air strike on Libya.

Listen to Rep here.

The Dukkan Show

One of the first podcasts to be launched in the MENA region, The Dukkan Show is the voice of Neo-Bedouins, exploring the concept of home and modern-day nomadism. Hosted by three third-culture kids, it’s also the first show globally to host a #TodayAtApple talk. Incidentally, the word ‘dukkan’ means shop in Arabic, resulting in a podcast inspired by the conversations held between friends as they hang out at their respective store stoops. As a result, everything from entrepreneurship and local events to hip-hop and motherhood are discussed in a manner that feels laidback and easily accessible.

What to Wear To Our 3 Favourite Dubai Brunches

Get your brunch on this Friday at one of these three hot spots.

Brunches are a firm staple of Dubai expat life but it can be difficult to navigate all the options. If you have a birthday coming up, or have visitors from out of town, we have just the pick of unique brunch spots to choose from, whether you want fun and rowdy or classy and elegant. So now that that’s sorted, what to wear? Brunch has long been an excuse to get dressed up to the nines and flaunt your favourite outfits, and who are we to halt that tradition? We’ve put together three outfits to match your brunch destination of choice perfectly.

BRUNCH 1: THE QUEEN’S IMMERSIVE BRUNCH

Where The London Project, Bluewater Islands
When Fridays 1-4pm
Cost From AED 395

Located on Dubai’s Bluewater Islands, The London Project pays homage to the street stalls of Camden Market, the posh restaurants of Mayfair and the modern cuisine of Shoreditch. Bruch-goers are treated to theatrical entertainment marked by “pomp, pageantry and a touch of debauchery,” including dancers, an aerialist and, of course, good food.

In keeping with the spirit, we’ve put together a look which evokes London’s traditional spirit and character – cosmopolitan, edgy, quirky at times and always sexy. Whatever decade of fashion you’re inspired by, be it the Swinging Sixties or the punk era, it won’t be hard to pull off a “London look.” We’ve taken inspiration from across the board and settled for this sparking dress inspired by Twiggy’s swinging 60s and the disco era. Ideal for The London Project’s theatrics!

What to wear:
Pretty Little Thing oversized t-shirt dress in dark grey glitter
Asos Design pull-on knee high boots
Lifestyle Sasha cow print tote bag
Susi Bellamy multi grid blocks scarf
Trendyol geometric shaped transparent earrings


BRUNCH 2: BULGARI YACHT CLUB

Where The Bulgari Resort, Jumeirah Bay Island
When Fridays 12-4pm
Cost From AED 495

There are no shortages of brunches nor yacht bays in Dubai, but the Bulgari Yacht Club brings the two together in outstanding elegance and style. Unlike the usual rowdiness associated with Dubai’s brunches, the Bulgari Yacht Club offers a more serene experience with delectable cuisine and surroundings. This locale should be on your list if you are a lover of seafood and want to enjoy a leisurely dip in the pool during your brunch experience.

As far as your outfit goes, we’ve put together this resort chic look, suitable for any yacht theme dining experiences.

BRUNCH 3: GORDON RAMSAY’S HELL’S KITCHEN

Where Caesars Palace, Bluewaters Dubai
When Fridays 12.30-4pm
Cost From AED 350

Said to mimic its counterpart in Las Vegas, Gordon Ramsay’s brunch at Hell’s Kitchen Dubai is a combination of theatrics and world-class cooking. An ode to the battle between the reds vs the blue on the show, brunch-goers will be treated to an Eton mess-making competition to round off the day’s events. Fun, participative and show-stopping, your outfit should reflect the tone of the day.
