Celebrating the launch of their debut Dubai boutique, art and style lovers shouldn’t miss visiting luxury Italian fashion brand Loro Piana’s immersive art installation in the Sky Garden of Dubai Opera.
From November 8 to November 10, the multi-sensory installation will invite visitors to discover the secrets of the world's finest merino wool, one of Loro Piana’s most exclusive treasures: The Gift of Kings®. Partnering on this exclusive exhibition with Tashkeel, the Dubai-based foundation that nurtures the growth of contemporary art and design practice rooted in the UAE, which was founded by H.H. Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Loro Piana has chosen to celebrate local culture by collaborating with internationally renowned artist eL Seed. Famed for his striking works that blend traditional Arabic calligraphy with contemporary street art, this site-specific piece was inspired by an ancient poem written by King Alfonso X, the enlightened, cosmopolitan ruler of thirteenth century Spain who played a pivotal role in the history of merino wool.
The installation can be seen from Thursday November 8th to Saturday November 10th in The Sky Garden at Dubai Opera.
