The Directory: Puma’s got the urban edge with Stampd

What’s hot and new for fashionable men in the UAE


Puma x Stampd returns

Frequent collaborators Puma and LA street-style label Stampd have released their next collection. The summer-ready pieces come with functional elements, from shapes inspired by the wetsuit, to camo motifs with an urban edge. Designed for those on the move, highlights include the Jackpack, which fuses a jacket and backpack: fold the jacket away and hit the streets and then in seconds the Jackpack can transform back into protective outerwear on-the-go. Now available.


Ajmal is an Aristocrat

Dubai perfumer Ajmal has launched a new fragrance called Aristocrat, a summer-y but intense perfume. With a bit of citrus and some musk and a touch of oudh, this one’s for the man that’s self-assured, well-travelled and who has great taste, says the brand. Now available for Dh200 (75ml).


Young and free

AllSaints’ summer collection is called Far From Here and the inspiration is love, youth and freedom. To drive home the message, the brand’s created a campaign film starring 18-year-old Maya Hawke, the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

“Anyone who spends any time with Maya will tell you that she’s smart, cool and possesses an infectious enthusiasm for new ideas, the creative process and life in general,” says AllSaints’ creative director Will Beedle. “As the title suggests, making this film with Maya is a conscious decision to escape from the city and New York’s increasingly overcrowded fashion week. Taking a trip up to Woodstock with Maya to capture the collection in the environment that inspired it — and then share it a week later with the world — felt more appropriate, more free, more now,”


Fluid lines

Clean-cut and modern, Italian brand Pal Zileri continues to evolve right in front of our eyes, making brave new changes to its image. For spring-summer, its all about fluidity, contrast and colours. From sneakers with the brand’s signature straps to multi-functional backpacks and totes in sleek lines, the accessories, as always, are a highlight.


The taming of the beard

It’s going to get hot but looks like beards are here to stay. The Art of Shaving has everything you’d need for a full grooming ritual: from essential oil-based grooming products to keep the hair soft and shiny and moustache wax to hold them in place and shape them, to cleansers that removes flakes and dirt, there’s a whole universe of products for beard growers. Now available at Paris Gallery.
