FASHION The UAE beachwear label stretches out with more colour for spring–summer 2022, signalling an optimistic future
Luxury resort brand BeMystique welcomes spring–summer 2022 with a dazzling collection of signature kimonos and loungewear. The collection showcases a vast array of prints and colours with variations of themes including Jungle, Safari, Tropics, Mediterranean, Tribal, Desert, and Boho. The kimonos come in short, midi and long versions, while the lounge pants come in wide-legged Samui, loose-fit Havana, or fitted Marbella styles.
A highlight of the line is the new long-sleeved V-neck cropped top. Each piece is meticulously handmade in Dubai, UAE, from the finest quality fabrics. They are light, breezy, and fully breathable, while remaining wrinkle-free. The kimonos, pants and cropped tops have the versatility to be mixed and matched with each other, or paired with the tops, swimwear and other wardrobe items for casual to sophisticated looks.
The line’s glamorous designs and detailing make them look stunning on any yacht or sandy shore from the Maldives to Fiji, Cancun and beyond; or you can delight in a vacation mood without even leaving home.
Created by Edyta Kochanowska-Holc, BeMystique is the luxury resort brand inspired by her passion for travel, culture and the arts. A Polish national living in Dubai, Edyta’s journeys have taken her to far-flung destinations to discover the unique craftsmanship of different artisans. This led her to working with locals in India, Nepal, China, Indonesia and Thailand in creating bracelets and other beaded jewellery and seeking out bags and sandals, crafted by the Wayuu tribeswomen of Colombia, crochet bikinis handmade in Brazil, and hand-painted panama hats and espadrilles. She eventually released her own line of unique kimonos, which now constitute the main pillar of BeMystique. She is continuously working on new designs and broadening the loungewear section with a selection of lounge pants, different cut kimonos, and stunning cropped tops.
According to Kochanowska-Holc, ‘It has been a difficult time of lockdowns and isolation for everyone and, with a glimmer of hope on the horizon, I wanted to create a collection full of colour and optimism. I would like women to feel unique, beautiful, and full of life whether on a beach escape or in the comfort of their own home. May the sun never stop shining, even if only in our hearts.’
The entire collection is now available on their website. •
