For the first time ever in the Middle East, Celine hosted an intimate lunch to showcase the Spring '17 collection, complete with this season's iconic cuts and carry-alls. Littered around the picturesque East Wing Gallery at DIFC, the pieces were juxtaposed against the raw edges of the achingly cool art space. Then, off to one side of the space, sat an aptly dressed dining table where guests were treated to a Celine-esque meal.
