Jean-Louis Deniot's Tangier: What to See, Where to Shop and Swoon Design and Fashion Topolina Isabelle Dallemang and her son Pierre-Henry kick up the color palette for the neon-hued interiors of their exciting fashion and design shop in the Medina. I recently acquired an exceptional Directoire-style armchair covered in a petit-point tapestry. I love their new limited-edition bronze tables and bamboo/ rattan furniture collections. Woven silk pillows I adore, plus cheetah-print jackets with emerald silk lining. If you love shocking pink, this is your nirvana. @topolinashop. Las Chicas Brilliant. Moroccan filmmaker Farida Benlyazid restored a Portuguese mansion to create the first Tangier concept store. I spend hours here, taking vegetarian lunch on the balcony, checking vintage jewels, lucky charms, and embroidered slippers. A must-visit here is fashion designer Jaimal Odedra and his new Baba (men and women) fashion collections. I recently ordered a Baba indigo jacket and an ivory robe in silk with a long black tassel belt. Super- chic. Tip: Odedra recently opened a new Baba boutique near the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. @laschicasdetanger. New Tangier I admire the elegance of Tangier-born fashion designer Kenza Bennani who custom- designs djellabas, kaftans, and long silk brocade dresses that Moroccan film stars wear on the red carpet. Her sustainable fashion label New Tangier is superbly handcrafted in luscious color-saturated linens, printed cottons, and silks. I especially a d m i re t h a t s h e showcases the savoir faire of local weavers and skilled artisans. Set in her family's handsome historic residence in Marshan. Kasbah Collective This very happening gallery is proof that the next generation offers exciting new ways of seeing Tangier's beauty. The founder is the son of Boutique Majid's owner, the world- famous textiles specialist, so he knows traditional crafts. Floral-embroidered This page: Veere Greeney's home, Gazebo.
