The Middle East is home to some of the most impressive collections of bags, shoes, and jewelry in the world, and Savoir Flair’s Accessories All Access series takes you into the closets of regional collectors to discover them for yourself. This month, follow us into the home of Emirati designer Latifa Al Shamsi for an exclusive tour of her accessories collection. From Hermès and Dior to Van Cleef & Arpels and Cartier, Al Shamsi’s extensive repertoire is one of the most covetable we’ve come across. “I think my love for accessories began long before I realized. As a child, I would play dress-up in plastic accessories for hours on end,” she shares during our shoot.

Over time, Al Shamsi, who describes herself as both a bag and shoe girl, has acquired an impressive collection of “It” bags and statement footwear, but her most cherished pieces are those passed on from her mother. “Every vintage item that my mom has given me really means a lot, like the one-of-a-kind Chopard watch that I plan to pass on to my daughter someday.”
