the last mile

Patricia Bitar Cherfan Founder and editor-in-chief Sitting with Roger, better known as Rodge, I was listening to him describing how he used to play music under the bombs of Lebanon’s War (p.38). I was reminded of my own experience playing piano under the very same bombs, refusing to go down to the shelter! I looked back at the time we used to surf empty streets after a cease-fire, taking a risk just to go out, when a bomb would suddenly fall somewhere so close that the sand and smoke it made would come in our eyes. I am from Aley. I am Lebanese. I lived the war. There are terrible stories from this war. I can never forget the one of a family friend telling us about his mother who was killed in a…

letter from the editor

This does not mean that we were not affected. Nobody from this land was spared from the effects of our war’s cruelty. This scene was different, to say the least, from the world of Barney and Disney my own children grew up in! Resilience I was once sitting with a French sustainability expert who told me that there is one thing we Lebanese have, that if we could package and sell, would make us the richest nation in the world. “What’ s that?” I asked. “Resilience,” he answered. Resilience – an incredible virtue we have developed from moments that required unimaginable strength, the stamina to stay till the end, to go for the last mile. It is so easy to give up just before the finish line. In my fight to promote Lebanon’s best image, I am always…

Through adaptation and evolution, the Chloé woman for spring 2019 personifies the vision of creative director, Natacha Ramsay-Levi, through portraying a bold expression of multiple feminine identities that transition effortlessly and smoothly from day to night. Treasuring innate confidence by embracing allure, the Maison’s new collection twists French classicism through glamorous yet urbane silhouettes and a palette rich with powdery neutrals, marigold, navy, sage and saffron. Its perennial daywear classics emphasize Chloé signatures, and the dress which the Maison selected as its staple sees the concept of flou refined; slim, floating skirts kick at the calf, slash at the leg or fall into a pointed hem. Feminine lace is scalloped and striped, pieced into crepe de chine or zebra satin as a sensuous counterpoint. Saharienne shirt dresses echo outerwear details with…

an interview with emerging lebanese designer rouba el murr

When she was 7, Rouba el Murr did not play dress up with her mother’s clothes; she painted on them and cut out the fabric to design her own. The 7-year-old devoured fashion magazines and studied runway shows. She announced to her parents: I want to be a fashion designer. Twenty-two years later, she is. What was the first outfit you ever created? A colorful bohemian dress, inspired by my mother’s flowing, gypsy-like style. I have always loved her fashion sense. How did your parents react when you told them you wanted to be a designer? My mother was supportive from the start; she bought me a child’s sewing machine so that I could make clothes for my Barbie. She said I should do whatever makes me happy, and that if that was fashion…
