Style Icons of the Month: Isabella & Leyla Brunton

Mummy bloggers are certainly on the rise, but don’t expect 30-minute meal recipes and home DIYs from this chic mama, as leylab.net focuses on the hottest trends, must-have beauty products, enviable travel destinations and chic lifestyle tips. The brainchild of its namesake, Leyla Brunton, the blog was started in 2015 . Fast forward a year and you’ve got one of the city’s most in-demand influencers who boasts one of the most personable, approach and humble personalities we’ve ever met. We caught up with Dubai’s most stylish mother-daughter duo, Leyla and Isabella, in DIFC’s equally stylish new haunt, Totora.

Top 3 trends for the current season?

This season I’m loving cargo chic. Over sized pockets, camo prints, and powdery palette of the light blues and neutrals to soften the look.

Biggest fashion faux pas that you wish people would stop doing?

Over sized hoop earrings. I think only person can wear hoops and really look good is Jennifer Lopez.

If you weren’t in your current job, what would you be doing?

I would not change anything in my life. In Nirvana.
I am currently working on my new abaya collection, will be launching SS17 soon.
