Three of the coolest clothing stores in Dubai
Kachins 44 Street
Forget all notions of cupboard-sized shops hidden down back alleys of Bur Dubai, Kachins is an extensive, well-appointed store where tea is served and guests can relax on sofas while browsing through style magazines for inspiration. While there’s a good range of Indian outfits on show here, don’t be fooled into thinking that’s all they have. If you’re after a slick suit, head past the colourful gowns and rummage through the cashmere wools on display. The cut is the key to a good suit, and that’s what makes Kachins superior. They insist on two fittings and a final check before the suit is ready to go, giving you that look you’re after. A range of different collar and cuff styles are also on offer here, and it won’t cost you a pretty dirham either.
When: Open Saturday-Thursday 10am-2pm and 5pm-10pm; Friday 5pm-10pm.
Where: Near Royal Ascot Hotel, Bur Dubai

The Good Life Space
Based in Dubai since 2017, The Good Life Space has developed a well-earned reputation for its ability to ensure customers are well stocked when it comes to the latest, and often hard to come by, releases. All of the major brands can be found here and its Instagram page, which provides news of exactly when the latest models are due to be released, is particularly useful. The Good Life Space is a major player in the Dubai sneaker scene and it continues to go from strength to strength.
When: Daily, 11am-8pm
Where: Alserkal Avenue

Bamboo t-shirts? How in the world does that work? Those were our initial thoughts anyway. Until we realised the benefits of sporting a tee made of a Panda’s favourite dish, along with how on-trend Teesing makes its shirts. From being naturally thermo-regulated to its extremely soft material, tees at this homegrown store are a no-brainer anyway, but add on the cult movie-inspired designs with a Dubai twist and you have a brand you’ll definitely want to be seen in.
When: Daily, 9am-10pm
Where: Boutique at the Beach, The Walk, JBR
