“Through this new collaboration, brought by Emaar, leaders and experts in real estate, Elie Saab is confident that its aim at extending the brand experience into home and interiors will be a granted success.”
The couturier will be designing the interiors of the 1 to 3-bedroom apartments throughout the tower by Elie Saab at Emaar Beachfront as well as a collection of four-bedroom penthouses, overlooking the Arabian Sea, The Palm and Dubai Marina.
The style will celebrate the 1930 Art Deco era, added both brands, and will also include ground level boutique fashion stores, galleries and cafes as well as lobbies designed by Elie Saab, which Emaar states will promote the “feeling of luxury”.
