IN PARTNERSHIP: As we head into the Autumn/Winter season, we say goodbye to the sweltering UAE heat and hello to the most fabulous weather of the year. Coinciding with that we also say hello to party season – socially distanced, of course.

With that, we need to ensure our wardrobes are up-to-date. And with more and more brands taking a conscious step to produce items that stand the test time, we’re all about finding those key hero pieces which will last for seasons to come.

Embracing the coming Autumn/Winter season is The Galleria Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi, with their ‘Step into Style’ campaign taking place from October 10 to November 9. It’s the perfect time to update your wardrobe’s hero pieces whether it’s a coat from Zara, a new bag from Saint Laurent or a staple shirt from Massimo Dutti – the shopping opportunities The Galleria Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi are endless.

During the ‘Step into Style’ campaign, with any spend of Dhs500 or more, shoppers will take home a very exclusive gift which has a personalised touch. Visit the ‘Step into Style’ stand located in the North Atrium on ground level with your receipts to choose which one of the five premium gift options you would like to have personalised: a luxury silk mask, a scented candle, a leather bracelet or a leather bag tag.

Skilled craftsmen will engrave, embroider or stamp your initials or first name on the spot, leaving you with a truly bespoke gift to take home.

If you’re needing some inspiration on the hero pieces to invest in for Autumn/Winter, don’t worry EW has got you covered. This year, leather items have been hugely popular and we’ve got eight hero buys that will bring your wardrobe to the next level, and will also stand the test of time, especially if you stick to a muted and monochrome colour palette.
