September 2022 is definitely Messika’s month, between the unveiling of the Qatar Edition jewels, the Venice Film Festival’s red carpet, and the constant generosity of the Parisian Maison when it comes to helping emerging Arab fashion designers.
Paying tribute to a monumental year in the nation’s history, and as the world gears up for the FIFA World Cup 2022, Valérie Messika wanted to introduce empowering limited-edition creations from the Maison’s signature Lucky Move and My Move collections exclusively in Qatar. Inspired by the iconic colors of the Qatari national flag, the special edition shows an elegant new palette of deep burgundy and classic white.
Innovative and modern, with a reserved production of just 122 numbered editions per variation, each Qatar Edition piece, developed in close collaboration with Ali Bin Ali Luxury, echoes a universal appeal, and is further imbued with significance, they’re an ode to 12 years of collaborative partnership between the Maison and the Qatar-based retail group. Etched with its own special engraving on the back reading “Qatar Edition #/122”, every piece evokes the sentiment of pride and purpose that is illustrative of the nation at this moment in time.
