For the December issue of Luxury magazine, we teamed up with Chanel for an exclusive shoot at Zaya Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi. With a selection of beautiful pieces from the brand's Resort 2016 collection, we were spoiled for choice. The team, however, was most captivated by the pyjama-style suit, pretty brooches (which we paired with a classic Chanel jacket) and pearl studded sunglasses.

We shot right outside one of the island’s contemporary villas, by the private poolside and along the beach, and we sure didn’t let the midday rainpour dampen the mood.
