On November 13, The Galleria Al Maryah Island officially launched a one-month series called Flânerie Colbert Abu Dhabi. It was created by Comité Colbert in partnership with the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi.)
What is Comité Colbert?
It’s an association that promotes the concept of luxury. There are 81 French luxury brands taking part, and so this series has been created to showcase French craftsmanship at the home of luxury brands in the U.A.E's capital, The Galleria Al Maryah Island.
What is the event about?
The Galleria’s Luxury Collection will host a ton of bespoke experiences with 26 French luxury brands from November 12 to December 14. You can check out some really cool pop-up shops and enchanting scenographies…basically you will get to experience something new and exciting at EVERY corner of The Galleria. Your fave brands like Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Christian Dior, Cartier, and Chloé (among others) will have stunning collections on display as well as special demos and artwork so we can learn about French culture, art and luxury.
When did it start?
Earlier this week, the event was inaugurated with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony at The Galleria in the presence of HE Saif Saeed Ghobash, Undersecretary of DCT Abu Dhabi, Guillaume de Seynes, Chairman of the Board of Comité Colbert, Elisabeth Ponsolle des Portes, President & CEO of Comité Colbert and Ali Eid Almheiri, Executive Director of Mubadala Real Estate and Infrastructure, as well as a delegation of 35 Presidents and CEOs of the French luxury brand members of Comité Colbert.

Tell me more!
Flânerie Colbert Abu Dhabi will also have OTT window displays and fun in-store events to highlight French luxury in the 21st century through collabs with the 26 brands exhibiting their work.
BTW, Flânerie Colbert Abu Dhabi will be going across Abu Dhabi. It’ll be exhibited at various venues like the House Of Artisans at the Al Hosn site, the annual Abu Dhabi Art Fair and the famous Louvre Abu Dhabi.
All of these events are under a main theme, ‘10,000 Years of Luxury,’ which is an exhibit that'll last till February 2020 at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. It’s hosted by Musee des Arts Decoratifs (MAD) who is an associate member of the Comité Colbert. So it’s luxury all. The. Way.
So, what are you waiting for? Put on your OOTD and escape to the world of French Luxury at The Galleria Al Maryah Island. Oui, oui?
