Object of Desire: The 'Kaffak Collection' from Bil Arabi by Nadine Kanso
A chic 'high-five' to the local designer
Beirut-born designer and regional influencer Nadine Kanso is the creative force behind Dubai-based label, Bil Arabi (which literally translates to 'In Arabic') – a jewellery brand of rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets that draw on the calligraphic shape and lyricism of the beautiful Arabic alphabet.
Using 18-carat gold, Kanso has recently launched 'Kaffak', her first handcuff collection of designs meaning 'high-five' or 'the palm of your hand', exclusively Bloomingdale's Dubai.
The 'Ya 3ein' cuff is a particular highlight, created to read as a term of endearment, something one would say it when he or she sees a beautiful thing or a beautiful person or hears a beautiful song... On one side rests an Evil Eye, set with a beautiful sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
The Bil Arabi 'Kaffak' collection is available at the Fine Jewellery and Watches Department on the Ground Floor at Bloomingdale's-Dubai now.
