“My love for accessories, especially shoes, started as a little girl when my mother would take me on shopping trips,” Adelya Bakhtiyarova tells Savoir Flair. Like every young girl, the Dubai-based jewelry designer spent endless hours playing dress-up in her mother’s closet. “She always had an eye for unique and rare pieces that she bought while travelling to different countries, especially from antique shops in post-Soviet countries,” the Kazakh beauty explains.

As we walk through her Emirates Hills home, which has various closets around the house, it’s clear that Bakhtiyarova is not just a ‘shoe girl’, but also a Chanel aficionado. From dozens of camellia flower brooches to couture gloves, sneakers, espadrilles, backpacks, and more – if it’s Chanel, she’s got it. “[My passion for the brand] started about ten years ago. It grew from love to more of an obsession. I love Chanel, because the collections are very different, creative, and match my personal style. I think it’s one of those brands that never goes out of style; you can wear vintage Chanel today and still look chic and elegant.”

When you have so many of Karl Lagerfeld’s creations in your closet, it can be hard to play favorites, but Bakhtiyarova tells us her accessory of the moment is definitely the Chanel pearl bag [page 2]. “I believe it will become a truly iconic Chanel piece. It is my favorite because it’s from the Dubai cruise collection, and when taking it out I will always remember the beautiful show held here.”
