News Flash! Villa Baboushka Opens May 16th

    If the name Vivienne
    Westwood makes your palms sweat, or the image of a Helmut Lang jacket makes you
    willing to sell your firstborn for a piece, then check yourself into Villa
    Baboushka on May 16 for some retail therapy.

    Set in a
    quaint 1930s villa in the heart of Zamalek, Villa Baboushka promises more than
    just your average retail experience; shoppers will be immersed into a unique
    blend of fashion, art and design, thanks to the boutique’s display of original
    art pieces by accomplished artists from all over the world, including France, Brazil
    and Argentina.

    Apart from
    fashion icons Westwood and Lang, the store also stocks an impressive selection
    of trendy fashion labels such as Paul and Joe Sister, Vanessa Bruno and
    Elizabeth and James. Fancy yourself a star-on-the-rise? Then try on streamlined, elegant evening
    dresses by red-carpet favourites Badgley and Mishka, or chic cocktail dresses by Los Angeles label
    Bianca Nero.

    If you’re nostalgic for London shopping, Villa
    Baboushka will bring London boutique shopping to you with labels like Nougat London and
    Maggy London.

    For something a little edgier, try Spanish cult label Hoss
    Intropia
    or Korean contemporary label Kaylee Tankus. Mara Hoffman’s brightly
    coloured mini dresses will leave you swooning, while Parisian label Lespetites
    will provide that much needed dose of relaxed French chic.

    Vix swimwear has
    been featured on Sports Illustrated and will now be available in Egypt just in
    time before the summer season, while NYC label Milly will bring the embellished mini dresses and silk maxi dresses.

    If any of
    this has you emptying out your bank account and relocating to Zamalek, you’ll
    have to wait until May 16 for Villa Baboushka to officially open its doors.
    Head on down at 8PM and claim asylum among the dresses. We know we will.
