Dubai-based handbag designer Lilian Afshar is known for more than just her stunning line of clutches, L’Afshar; her understated, elegant, and minimal style has earned her a loyal following in the Middle East. Savoir Flair tapped the regional trendsetter to find out where she shops for everyday casual wear. “Uterque. I’m in love with that store for casual clothing,” the 24-year-old accessories designer reveals. Originating from Spain, Uterque is known for its high-quality leather accessories, but the Spanish brand, which comes from the same Inditex family as Zara and Massimo Dutti, has been upping its ready-to-wear game lately, landing itself on Afshar’s shopping radar. “They just opened a new store at The Dubai Mall, which is even better than the previous one,” she adds.
