Rubaiyat, the pioneers of high-end fashion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, announced the opening of its first-of-its-kind luxury fashion Department Store in the country, thus creating a unique multi-brand fashion and lifestyle destination in one of the fastest growing fashion-conscious markets in the region.

The Department Store offers a treasure trove of over 350 leading world-class fashion brands under one roof and is strategically located at Stars Avenue Mall in Jeddah. The store, spread across 4,400 square meters across 2 levels, showcases almost the entire gamut of leading international brands across women’s wear, beauty, shoes, accessories and lifestyle.

Whether you are looking for high-end designer brands such as Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Charlotte Olympia, Karl Lagerfeld, Lanvin or any other, the one-stop destination is the all-new Rubaiyat Department Store offering a 360 degree view of luxury fashion across all categories.

No wonder that it is virtually impossible to find a place similar to the Rubaiyat Department Store, which extends the largest designer shoe offer in KSA or the largest designer handbags collection in the country or even the most exclusive high-end perfume range in the Kingdom!

Shaik Abdallah Binzagr, Owner and CEO of Rubaiyat, said: “With the new Rubaiyat Department Store, we have invested in creating the hub of luxury fashion in the region – Saudi Arabia. We are offering a totally new concept in luxury fashion by bringing almost all the leading brands under one roof and creating an unbelievable shopping experience for our customers and huge opportunity for our brand partners.”

He added: “The new store simulates a journey of discovery with its array of fashion labels, some of them exclusive to the store. This is an ultra-luxurious hub featuring exclusive and accessible designer fashion under one roof.”

Wafaa Abbar, Co-owner and President of the Rubaiyat Group, said: “The new Rubaiyat Department Store is a result of the appetite for designer fashion and lifestyle in KSA. We are redefining the luxury fashion retail in the true sense of the term – not only for those who shop but those who want to experience the world of style and high-end fashion. We are very excited about creating a really dynamic business in KSA with our new concept store.”

The Rubaiyat store offers a diverse and highly innovative journey through the world of fashion. The timeless styles on offer combine simplicity with warmth and elegance with classicism, thus creating a unique shopping experience. The project was conceived locally with the involvement of talented Saudi nationals – Ms Amra Alabdalisharif designed the store with contribution of Ms Rozan Nashar.

“The Rubaiyat Department Store is a concept store with a unique design where all brands were carefully selected for their high quality and trend appeal,” added Wafaa.

Rubaiyat was founded in 1980 by the Binzagr family and was the only company in its field to import new fashion trends of international brands in Saudi Arabia. Rubaiyat operates both multi-brand and mono-branded boutiques that offer a range of exclusive selection of the luxury fashion names.
