Dolce & Gabbana tell us their Dubai haute spots

On their many visits to the gilded, marbled emirate of opulence, Domenico and Stefano prefer to see a very different side to Dubai, eshewing our extravagant hotels for the more authentic experiences of the Gold and Spice Souks in Deira, and the wilderness of a desert safari. They lunch at Cipriani, of course, thanks to a traditional Italian menu of burrata alla Mediterranea, braised artichoke hearts alla Romana and Chilean sea bass with grilled vegetables. At sunset, the designers take in the stunning views of the Burj Al Arab from Pierchic for dinner, and the next time you’re in d3, don’t be surprised to come across Dolce and Gabbana themselves checking out the region’s aspiring new design talent. Domenico and Stefano tell Grazia, “The city is very exciting! We discover something new every time we come visit. It just keeps on growing and growing.”
