We all know the feeling: starting to look really pregnant and, this time quite literally, nothing to wear unless you don't mind looking like a tent … never mind those invites to elegant affairs!
Well, chic Parisian-inspired maternity label Séraphine has finally landed in Dubai, adding to the global portfolio of this brand already present in cities like New York, Hong Kong, Paris and London.
If you visit their store in Dubai Festival City which happens to be their largest flagship store with 2,500 sq ft, not only will you be treated like royalty and celebrities alike, but you will also be able to select the very outfits that style icons like Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Victoria of Sweden, Mila Kunis, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Karolina Kurkova and Sienna Miller to name but a few, would wear while pregnant.
The brand is not a favourite amongst the royals and glitterati for nothing: Cécile Reinaud, a Parisian herself and the brand’s founder and designer (amongst many other achievements and accolades), has an eye for creating sophisticated, yet easy-to-wear designs that see mums-to-be from trimester to trimester in comfort while looking super stylish.
I love the versatility of the brand: work dresses, maxi dresses, maternity jeans (even the ripped skinny variety!), knitwear, lingerie, swimwear, etc Not to be missed is Séraphine Deluxe, a line of the most gorgeous dresses for special occasions AND a range of luxury babywear, The Diana Collection, where 12% of the sale price of every piece goes to supporting The Diana Award, a charity set up in memory of the Princess of Wales.
To browse through more styles or check how the celebs wear it, have a look on HERE, or plan a trip to Ikea (there is always an excuse to go to Ikea, no matter how small!) and 'accidentally' end up walking through the doors of Séraphine ...
