Harvey Nichols in Dubai (Instagram) heralds the arrival of Autumn Winter 2023, stepping boldly into the limelight with its dance-inspired campaign, “Let’s Dance,” a thoughtful blend of style, freedom, and self-expression. This season, the focus is on individuality, offering a colourful array of womenswear, menswear and beauty essentials, all designed to make the colder months a canvas for personal style.
This season’s Harvey Nichols collection is all about luxurious textures, avant-garde silhouettes and contrasts – earthy brown leathers meet the vivacity of bright pinks and eclectic blues, all accented by glimmers of metallic gold and silver. Vintage prints and bold motifs serve as the collection’s heartbeat. Pops of lime and olive flow throughout, infusing the collection with a retro zest.
Pink emerges as the collection’s pièce de résistance, woven into both menswear and womenswear. As autumn nears, the Harvey Nichols fashion palette shifts to embrace the full spectrum of the colour, from the softest blush to the boldest fuchsia. Imagine stepping out in a Richard Quinn dress, awash in shades of pink, complemented in Mach & Mach’s hot pink heels and Givenchy’s latest fragrance. Women’s accessories, from Giaborghini’s timeless black leather boots to Alexander McQueen’s sleek handbags, are the epitome of sophistication.
The story doesn’t stop at womenswear. For men, this season invites them to redefine their style with a fresh perspective on the classic black leather jacket, now reborn in a warm, earthy brown. Nanushka takes the lead on this transformation with a leather ensemble, seamlessly paired with Casablanca’s brown loafers. The collection also introduces pastel hues and old-school pattern shirts for a refreshing preppy twist. Smith’s flowing viscose shirt features a lively check print, nicely complemented by Palm Angels’ black velvet loafers. For those who prefer the timeless allure of minimalism, white also makes a strong appearance this season. An ensemble by Amiri, punctuated by Lanvin’s street-style sneakers offers a refined aesthetic that stands out against the season’s darker hues.
In this collection, metallics break free from their holiday confines, becoming a year-round affair. Silver and gold make an early appearance and add a touch of opulence to everyday ensembles. An exquisite silver gown by Taller Marmo can be flawlessly paired with Giaboghini’s silver mules, adding a touch of glimmer without being too overwhelming. Complete the look with Tom Ford’s Soleil de Feu glow highlighter for a subtle shimmer.
Blending rugged charm with bohemian elegance, the Western trend makes a comeback but with a modern twist. Feather-adorned tops by La Double J pair effortlessly with Senora’s leather cowboy boots, creating an aesthetic that is both nostalgic and contemporary. The ‘Modern Mod’ aesthetic is also in full swing, featuring Alessandra Rich’s pale green dress paired up with Bonnie Clyde’s iconic sunglasses, tied together by a daring Buly fragrance.
Beyond the textiles, Harvey Nichols extends its curatorial expertise to beauty. Season-defining fragrances and autumnal eyeshadow palettes perfectly complement the fashion offering, completing the sensory experience.
Spanning a sprawling 136,900 square feet across three levels, Harvey Nichols in Dubai remains the city’s premier destination for luxury fashion. With the “Let’s Dance” campaign, the store is setting the stage for a season that promises to be an unforgettable celebration of individuality and style.
