The cover of the May issue of Luxury magazine shows a model standing on top of a rocky cliff located in Oman's Al Hajar mountain range. She is dressed in a dramatic tiered gown from the Gucci spring/summer 2016 runway, with accessories by Etro, Jennifer Fisher and Dubai-based jewellery designer D by Dalia. Our fashion team was hosted by Alila Jabal Akhdar, an exquisite resort nestled within the mountains, offering guests a priceless view of the surrounding natural wilderness. To produce the fashion editorial, titled The Edge of Reason, we braved steep rocks and scary drops, traipsing outside of the outermost barriers of the lodge-like resort (at our own risk) to capture images that would do justice to the stony, serene setting.
Pick up a copy of the magazine, out tomorrow with The National newspaper, to see the full fashion shoot, and to read about contemporary carpet designer Jan Kath, the latest collection from Montblanc and the new hot spot for Japanese cuisine in Dubai. Also, find out what makes the new Drive de Cartier watch so covetable, and why a certain piece of furniture was recently auctioned off for Dh1,450,000.
