Your ultimate guide to the Eid Al Adha long weekend in Dubai – July 7 to July 11, 2022.
Indulge in an exclusive culinary experience at Netsu at Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai this Eid Al Adha. The new ‘This is Netsu’ tasting menu will give diners a glimpse into the world of Warayaki and its theatrical cuisine this summer. The all-new four-course menu designed by Chef Ross Shonhan includes an exclusive selection of 8 signature dishes, such as Salmon and Avocado Shiso Tacos and Spicy Wagyu Hot Stone Rice alongside mouthwatering additions such as Korean Fried Chicken and Mango Kakigori Mochi, that will leave guests wanting to return to try the full menu.
Homegrown brand The Giving Movement has teamed up with YOOX to launch an exclusive capsule collection just in time for the long weekend. The capsule collection on sale exclusively on YOOX consists of 14 pieces between sportswear and streetwear, and complements the brand’s entire collection which aims at total inclusion in terms of gender, size and age. In addition to a line of activewear for women, men and children, there is also a modest line that focuses on long, opaque garments such as maxi tunics, oversized shirts, trousers and veils that The Giving Movement is producing for the first time exclusively for YOOX. The leitmotif of this capsule collection is freedom in all its forms: whether it is understood as freedom of movement or freedom to express oneself.
