In focus: AlOthman boutique in Kuwait
A leader in luxury fashion in Kuwait since 1956
Opening on November 9 2013, the recently re-located boutique featuring an ultra modern and simplistically elegant interior was designed by the talented Kuwaiti architect Nasef Al Nasef. Founded in 1956, AlOthman boutique has enjoyed half a century of successful retailing, after having proudly introduced high fashion to Kuwait. Now located on the opposite end of the Maryam Complex, where the boutique previously stood, the new location boasts an unmatched international brand selection and first-class service. With a designated area for coffee and tea, a cosy open-air garden, and a personal shopping area among their bridal, home and ready-to-wear departments, AlOthman boutique's offering allows clients to escape the scenery of the busy malls to enjoy a day of lavish shopping in a picturesque environment.
Throughout the years, the heritage of the brand has not been lost as AlOthman is still a family run business compromising three generations of loyal clientele. Providing a personal shopping service free of charge, with complimentary alterations, VIP clients have the leisure of trying on clothes at home at their own convenience without having to pay any cost or do any unnecessary travelling to and from the boutique.
The boutique's brand selection spans both the luxury market as well as contemporary brands, including the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Balmain, Erdem, Elie Saab, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, Preen and Peter Pilotto to name a few. Tucked away in a secluded area of the store, the store's eveningwear selection is accompanied by its own cashier desk, where clients are able to privately shop away from the rest of the store.
Looking to the boutique's bridal salon, brides-to-be will find on offer a very exclusive and luxurious experience. Specialising in personal one-on-one services, setting the boutique apart from others, clients have an option to special order the gown of their dreams if they cannot find it among the Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Monique Lhullier on offer in store. AlOthman works closely with a veil couturier, Homa Bridal who designs one-of-a-kind veils and headpieces to ensure that each bride has a unique veil that will compliment her wedding gown.
Among ready-to-wear and bridal, the boutique also has a dedicated space for homeware by the Kuwaiti-based brand Ecru, which aims at producing affordable home accessories and linens that glorify traditional handiworks.
Well respected as a leading brand in luxury in Kuwait, AlOthman is also a part of another upscale venture in Kuwait, as the first company to be approached by Harvey Nichols Kuwait, which opened in Fall of 2012. AlOthman is one of the key brand operating partners with Harvey Nichols Kuwait, and is working towards giving clients the best shopping experience possible. Expansion of the brand into the Middle East includes the opening of a multi-brand eveningwear boutique in Bahrain's luxurious shopping destination, Moda Mall, in 2007.
The boutique offers express worldwide shipping using DHL, delivering to any country that is covered by DHL's services. AlOthman, Maryam Complex Salem Al Mubarak Street Salmiya, Kuwait.
