After much anticipation and preparation, we officially opened the doors to our flagship store in Bahrain Seef Mall! Under the patronage of Tamkeen Chairman H.E Sheikh Mohammed Bin Essa Al Khalifa, on May 18th 2016 we had the honor of hosting a spectacular evening of art, beauty and elegance.
The first Annada store in Bahrain is a place to immerse yourself in beauty and art, experiencing the stories behind the scarves and feeding the senses all at once. As a luxury lifestyle brand that encompasses the art and culture of the region, the success of opening our first store drives our vision to open stores
around the world in the future.
As ballerinas gave our scarves a twirl around the store, colorful silk scarves were showcased and we were happy to be joined by many for a beautiful celebration. Sharing our passion and philosophy with everyone, we were delighted to be creating memorable moments surrounded by friends, family and well-wishers.
The opening of the flagship store showcased the launch of an exclusive new collection, labelled Volume R, which represents the personal art pieces of H.E. Shaikh Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa. The shop also contains scarf collections and accessories reflecting the work of various emerging and established Bahraini artists such as Abbas Al Mosawi, Abdul Elah Al Arab, Ebrahim BuSaad, Faika Al Hassan, Hassan Haider, Ghassan Mohsin, Jamal Abdul Rahim, Khalil Al Hashimi, Mariam Fakhro, Nabeela Al Khayer, Omar Al Rashid, Sabine Al Gosaibi and other renowned Bahraini artists.
Additionally, we held the release of our latest stationery and accessory range to complement our silk accessories. We launched notebooks, postcards, bookmarks and bracelets, with each featuring a signature artistic accent from our carefully curated artist base. Our ever-growing collection is the essence of Annada’s vision; to illuminate your world.
Our new store allows for customers to delve into our vision of sharing beautiful art with the world through a platform of timeless elegance. Co-founder of Annada, Nada Alawi, said: “Annada is about finding joy in beauty and celebrating it with another, and with the opening of our flagship boutique, we’ll be able to share this beauty with everyone across the kingdom of Bahrain.
We would like to thank all our partners, our colleagues and friends, Tamkeen and the passionate artists we work with, as the launch of our first full-fledged boutique would not have been possible without them.” We look forward to seeing you!
