Shopping Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
The Galleria on Al Maryah Island protects its luxury boutiques under a complicated spider’s web of a canopy. Fashionistas from Abu Dhabi and the rest of the Gulf flock here for Balenciaga, Céline, Dior, Emilio Pucci, Lanvin, Fendi, Kenzo, Boucheron, Cartier, Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo, leaving these big name brands with their arms weighed down by labelled shopping bags. A few more affordable stores, like Occitane en Provence and Séphora, have also found a home at The Galleria. The lovely array of gourmet tearooms and sophisticated fusion restaurants give this iconic shopping centre in the Emirate’s capital a refined atmosphere.
