Who Wore What to Sole DXB 2017

As Sole DXB (a three-day street fashion and culture festival in its 6th year) wraps up for another year,’s street style spy and photographer Samir Rana captured some of the best-dressed attendees.

The theme for the urban sartorial celebrations focused on Japanese contemporary design, so cue the Tokyo-inspired booth. The event sees high-end and high street brands collaborate. Visvim, Undercover, and Non-Native were just a few of the brands on offer in the micro village of cool. Les Benjamins x Bloomingdale’s unveiled a 27-piece capsule collection in a pop-up, and Dior Homme, Puma, Asics, Reebok, and Saudi designer Arwa Al Banawi x Levi’s all showcased exclusive collections.
