Earlier this year, style connoisseur and in-the-know blogger Dana Al Khalifa of The Overdressed shared her recommended go-to spots in Bahrain. Today, Savoir Flair turns to another stylish resident of this island nation, fashion designer Amal Al Mulla, for a taste of Bahrain’s best.

The womenswear designer shares, “As far as shopping spots and hidden gems are concerned, it’s best to visit Manama Souq for traditional gold and local finds. There is also a shopping center called Riyadat Mall, where you can find local businesses, such as Amina Gallery. Owned by artist Amina Al Abbasi, this is a place where you can not only revel in beautiful artworks, but also shop for one-of-a-kind pieces to add to your wardrobe.”

Indeed, Amina Gallery isn’t your average art gallery. With the intention of raising brand awareness, Al Abbasi turned her bespoke artworks – which beautifully showcase past traditions – into collectable fashion items. What started out with phone cases now spans accessories such as clutches, bangles, coin purses, and even homeware. More recently, the gallery included pieces from Al Mulla’s recent collaboration with Al Abbasi. These can also be purchased at the gallery’s second (and bigger) branch in Seef Mall.
