Trend-Plate: Summer In Tel Aviv
Also, thanks to the lively beach scene with youths hanging out along the beaches, or skating down the boardwalk.
But unlike any other cities in the Middle East, Tel Aviv has a unique soul and vibe conjured from the eclectic melange of both east and west.
Adding contemporary punch into the city’s vibrant landscape and the lush panorama of the palm tree-lined Mediterranean coastline is the diverse mix of up-to-the-minute architecture that thrives along its Business District and the historic Bauhaus buildings dotting the unique Ha-Ir HaLevana or White City.
Hip restaurants and shopping sites aside, fashionistas will be thrilled by what Israeli designers, both established and upcoming, have to offer in stores. But here’s a useful tip for you: If it is compulsory for you to have at least a small dosage of international couture before leaving the city, then head to Helga Design (12, Hey Beiyar Street Kikar Hamedina, Tel Aviv. Tel: 03-6955488; http://helgadesign.biz/)— Tel Aviv’s favourite designer haven. This is where the likes of Prada, Tod’s, Yves Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Diane von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Philip Lim and Haider Ackermann, just to list a few, call home.
