This weekend I visited the delightfully stylish Per Lei Couture at The Pearl in Doha. The multibrand luxury boutique offers a private shopping space for the sophisticated woman. The clothing collections range from ready-to-wear youthful styles to intricately detailed evening gowns. Needless to say, I felt right at home.
At the doorway, the glittering brass chandelier and plush white chairs are incredibly inviting and make it near impossible to just walk by without peering in. On entering the boutique, I was greeted by two well-manicured fashion attendants who were so friendly I wouldn’t have been surprised if they’d offered me tea and a back rub while I shopped. After feasting on the footwear, I had a look at the delicate accessories that were draped on life-size hand moulds on display cabinets.
I was then escorted into what I can only describe as the closet of my dreams. This newly extended area of the boutique is like a stylist’s fairytale. Filled with designs from London, France, Brazil, Italy, US as well as some local talent. And all perfectly positioned in glass display cases and on beautifully lit cabinets. Not only did I feel right at home, I wanted to move in!
Some of my favourite pieces were from Romanian designer Cristallini, Italian brand Esme Vie and two Lebanese talents Harith Hashim and Randa Salamoun. Their selection of red carpet looks can make a girl feel like a princess, and of course a princess requires private chambers in which to fit her ball gowns; and that’s exactly what Per Lei provides. A private VIP lounge area where you can fit your garments at leisure.
Just like the name says, Per Lei “For Her” this boutique gives your femininity butterflies, because if you’re looking for elegance, sophistication and style – Per Lei is ‘For You”.
To give you a glance into the boutique and my style selections, I’ve put together the short video below for your viewing pleasure.
