We’re Crazy For This Emirati Designer’s Chips Oman Dress
What happens when fashion and junk food combine? A look that’s good enough to eat…
Who doesn’t love Chips Oman? The salty snack is a nostalgic favourite for those who grew up in the UAE, enjoying the crisps pressed inside a hot, greasy paratha, with a splash of hot sauce.
Well, it turns out there’s a way you can get your Chips Oman fix that is totally guilt-free. Local fashion label FMM Dubai has a dress that is inspired by the culinary legend – and we’re obsessed.
FMM Dubai was founded by Emirati designer Fatma Al Mulla, who is known for her pop culture-inspired shirts, dresses, abayas and accessories that can be found in Dubai’s coolest boutiques (and also online – though sadly, this Chips Oman beauty is currently out of stock).
As part of her “Throwback Wayback” collection, she also has kaftans inspired by other local favourites like Suntop Juice, Laban Up, and the Ramadan icon that is Vimto.
She sells phone cases, too. Warning: if you own one of these, you’ll crave Chips Oman all the time.
Fatma is not the only designer to have embraced the power of the chip. Homegrown fashion label La Come Di also has a Chips Oman offering – a-tshirt showing a couple enjoying some crisps and a Laban Up. The perfect combination.
You can also get a clutch bag version. Seriously, how cute is this?
Could Chips Oman be shaping up to be 2017’s hottest trend? Stranger things have happened. Remember handbag designer Anya Hindmarch’s infamous Crisp Packet clutch, fashioned from a packet of salt & vinegar chips and reproduced in silver and gold?
Saturated fats have never been more sartorial.
