Aimed squarely at the same luxury goods consumer as its stores, Ounass now also offers an extensive range of high end goods.
With fashion by Erdem, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, and Bottega Veneta, it will include additional exclusive capsule collections from the likes of Rami al Ali, Ayesha Depala, Roland Mouret and even Gucci.
Alongside fashion, the site also offers handbags and shoes from brands that include Dolce & Gabbana, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Jimmy Choo; evening-wear by Monique Lhullier, Ellie Saab and Notte by Marchesa; beauty by Acqua di Parma, YSL and Laura Mercier, and even homewares from the designers like Jonathan Adler, Michael Aram and Kate Spade.
The site offerings don’t end there, they also connect you with access to a world of fine jewellery, with pieces by Boucheron, David Yurman and Pomellato available along with others.
While this isn’t the first offering of its kind, what sets Ounass apart is the promise of free delivery of goods within two hours in Dubai.
