It’s officially Caftan Season in Kuwait, summer is here and Ramadan is just around the corner. Whilst Caftans have recently become a global trend, they have always been a tradition in Kuwait. This makes Kuwait the perfect place to stock up on your Caftans. What’s more, Caftans in Kuwait are more likely to be climate suitable and use natural fibers such as Linen or Silk.
Charlotte Lucie, my own brand, has some stunning Caftans and Caftan inspired dresses this season in luxurious silk, linen and cottons. So do some of my favourite Caftan Designers and Shops in Kuwait:
Tefaseel– located in Souk Mubarakiya, Tefaseel has their own brand of unique and simple Caftans designed by Dala al Yaya, as well as a range of unique brands from across the Gulf including: Charlotte Lucie, Hamsa, Altai Atelier, House of Fatam, Fanoos Collection and many more. You will also find the Caftan pricing range very reasonable. Instagram: Tefaseel
Faby Garden– located in the new and very cool Mayar Complex in Shuwaikh on the Mezzanine Level, Faby Garden has a range of exclusive caftans as well as clothing designed by Farah Alwazzan. This year her Ramadan Collection is inspired by Frida Kahlo, so expect lots of colour and vibrancy. Charlotte Lucie Dresses are also newly available here. Instagram: faby_garden
Hamsa– Located next door to Tefaseel in Souk Mubarakiya, Hamsa is one of the longer established and famous Caftan Designers in Kuwait. Expect a mix of traditionally embroidered as well as more modern pieces. Her Caftans are definitely an investment piece that will be worn for years to come. Instagram: hamsakwt
Revolution Boutique– located in Kuwait City, Revolution Boutique is a multi-brand boutique with a range of Caftans, many in linen which are so desirable for Kuwait summers. Again, the Caftan pricings are very reasonable. Instagram: Revolutionkwt
