While the UAE's malls are starting to reopen, you may prefer to continue making your purchases from the comfort of your home. In response to the current situation, several luxury, fashion and homeware brands have launched new e-commerce sites and delivery services.
Here are 10 options that will now arrive straight to your door:
The harbinger of all things luxury, Hermes has introduced a complimentary concierge service across the GCC, with free-of-charge delivery to your door. Customers can chat with their concierge via WhatsApp or on the phone, from Sunday to Thursday, and there is no minimum spend.

To mark the advent of the holy month, Loro Piana launched the first phase of its regional e-commerce platform, exclusively for the UAE.

Same-day delivery is offered across the Emirates, with no additional charge. There are also a number of products only available online, including leather goods for women and a Ramadan Capsule Collection. Delivery, refunds and exchange are all free.

Your purchases will be delivered contactless and free of charge.

Calvin Klein products are now available online in the UAE, via the 6th Street e-store.
