Michael Kors Opens Its First Store In Beirut

Posted By :


I’ve seen the brand in malls like ABC but this is the first standalone store in the country. Michael Kors is now open on Fakhry Bey Street in the Beirut Souks area.

I checked the official Michael Kors website and the Beirut store is still not added.

American fashion brand Michael Kors hosted a party Tuesday night for the opening of its first store in Lebanon. Dozens of women wandered through the shop at the opening event, ogling walls of the brand’s popular solid-color handbags – or carrying their own – and eyeing cases of watches and eyewear.

Rolex Opening A New Boutique In Jounieh

Posted By :


As surprising as it may seem, Rolex is opening a new boutique in the old souk of Jounieh. The new boutique is a old renovated house and is located in the old souks of Jounieh right before the resort Amwaj. I have to say I never expected Rolex to open in Jounieh. I bet the monthly rent they are paying there is less expensive than a Rolex watch haha!

Rolex has a branch also in Beirut on Weygand street.


Love Translator App by The Mukhi Sisters

Posted By :


It’s no secret that men and women don’t always get each other. That’s why the Mukhi sisters have come up with a fun Valentine app that translates what women really mean. Men just type in what women are telling them and the app translates the sentence to “English”. In case Love Translator doesn’t return an answer, you could always suggest one with the help of your wife/fiancee/gf or just “Break the language barrier” and get a jewelry suggestion. I think that’s a pretty cool idea and I would love to see a compilation of the best suggested answers after a while.

Speaking of jewelry, I never understood why women or anyone for that sake love getting jewelry so much. Personally speaking, that’s like the worst gift I could get from anyone.

Born to an Indian father and a Lebanese mother, the Mukhi Sisters bring you the best of both worlds in contemporary jewelry pieces. Passion for jewelry was innate and inherited by their parents who have been renowned jewelers for years. Each their own design and their own personal touch, the Mukhi Sisters line of jewelry is sure to satisfy everyone’s tastes.

The app is available only on the iTunes Store. [Download]

The Middle East’s first 3D Print Shop in Mar Mikhail

Update: Here’s a link to the price list [Here]. Thank you Yasmine!

It would be interesting to see if this technology will pick up in Lebanon. I am not sure how much it costs and there’s no mention of the prices on the Bakery’s [website], so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Last month, Mar Mikhael became home to the Middle East’s first 3D printing shop – a walk in ‘fab lab’ allowing customers to print their digital designs as solid 3D objects.

The store’s founder and principal, Guillaume Credoz, explained the technology to NOW using the example of a Beirut taxi driver’s decades-old Mercedes.

“Say a part in this car has blown, but spares are not made any more – not in Lebanon, not anywhere else in the world. The only other that exists is in the car of a collector in the States. We could have this part scanned to create a digital file, receive the file in an email, and print a perfect copy in a durable material. The process could be complete in a day or two, and the customer can drive away.”
