Avant-Garde Tower to Grace Dubai Skyline. Boutique Middle East property developer, Abyaar and designer Christian Lacroix announced a joint venture, which will establish a residential tower in one of Dubai's most exclusive beachside suburbs.

The 38-unit, coastal Jumeirah-based tower will incorporate a Lacroix-designed facade, expansive lobby and luxury interiors.

Although Lacroix has worked on several Paris-based boutique hotel interiors, this is the first residential offering to which the designer's trademark blend of past and future will make its mark.

Marzooq Al Rashdan, Vice Chairman and MD, Abyaar says, "We approached Lacroix because he is known for his exceptional design skills and theatrical style, both on and off the catwalk. This is the start of a long term partnership that places Abyaar on the luxury development map internationally.

"We are working on something special that will tell a Middle Eastern story. The interiors will be based on paradox - contemporary and baroque, blending East and West, old and new, inspired by history and folklore," says Lacroix

Lacroix will be sourcing and, in many cases, creating unique materials for the interior design.

"The Middle East is a pioneering place where creative freedom is unshackled. We are pleased to be entering the region with a developer like Abyaar who caters to a select audience, favouring the extraordinary."

Among his non-catwalk pursuits, Lacroix has designed several hotels, interiors for the French chain of Gaumont cinemas; TGV trains to Strasbourg; tramway cars in Montpellier and the costumes for The Marriage of Figaro at the Aix-en-Provence festival, amongst other high profile productions.
