Still laughing at a comment by the mother of a friend who wants to visit me ('But why would you go there? Firstly, it's dangerous because of the war; and secondly, you won't see anything because you'll be stuck in a commune the whole time.'), I thought it best to help my friend out by posting these pics of some of the store windows I came across yesterday. If the streets of Beirut are a commune, at least they're fashionable!
Jimmy Choo and an exclusive sunglass store that sells one-of-a-kind designs, including an 18c-gold pair of Ray-Bans.
Lebanon's greatest fashion export, and designer to the Hollywood stars, Elie Saab.
