Marrakech is always a good idea, so when Allianz invited me to visit again the¬†red¬†city I just couldn’t say no! This city is really a little gem in the middle of the desert and I love to go back each time I have the occasion. Each time I have the chance to discover a new place, I try a restaurant and discover a new designer and so my favorite thing to do in Marrakech had¬†become¬† » hunting treasures!
During this¬†weekend, I had the chance to attend the 2nd edition¬†of the formula E, which is a race similar to¬†Formula¬†1 but with¬†an electric car. Indeed, Marrakech¬†has become¬†one of the cities that encourage and promote the¬†global climate action when it hosted¬†the Cope 21 in 2016. And oh you will not believe that, Leonardo Di Caprio and Orlando Bloom were there too, unbelievable, it seems¬†that Marrakesh is really trendy right now.
The day after the race we went for a walk in the medina with the Allianz team and since they¬†just started their own clothing collection I had to find the best boutiques in town.
We started our tour in the ¬† » Rahba Lakdima‚ÄĚ¬†square, which is a place where you can find the typical Moroccan handcrafts such as baskets, rugs and jewels.¬†I like this square because from there, you are able to visit the whole medina and it is also a nice place to shop and to enjoy a mint tea while watching the sunset on the rooftop of Caf√© des √Čpices or Nomad.
Also if you like curious animals be prepare to observe some chameleon and discover a different kind of snail recipes than the French one. The square really look like a small circus, and if it seems strange to you, we in Morocco like to have parakeets or turles at home because it brings good luck!
After that, we went to ¬†‚ÄúSouk cherifia‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúCaf√© des cr√©ateurs‚ÄĚ witch¬†is a kind of a « gallery » with many different designers who have in¬†comment the ambition of mixing the¬†Moroccan¬†culture with the modern¬†style.
Some of them like Bazarkech have a really sustainable production since they reused old fabrics for their clothes.
I really liked this caftan, I can easely style it on a pair of jeans with a tee shirt for a very gyspy look, what do you think?
Also I found at ‚ÄúThe Henna Store‚ÄĚ organic and homemade hair and skin products. I adore the argan oil and this time I bought some castor oil to help my hair growth, I will let you know you if it works well ūüėČ
Then¬†we went to Max & Jane one of the biggest concept store in the Medina and with¬†its¬†big pink wall you cannot miss it. On the inside you will find a¬†bazaar¬†of clothes, sunglasses, arts, furniture¬†all very original and unique.
Then we continued our tour¬†through the narrow streets of the medina to Chabi-Chic an address that I highly recommend you if you are looking for cockery with a Moroccan twist.
I took a set of pots that I putted in my bathroom to use it for my make up brushes and I like to have a little Moroccan touch in my interior since it is a very bohemian style. In Marrakech you can explore different word in the same street, from leather bags, to straw baskets, rugs and fantastic food, a real mix of the Moroccan tradition!
Now you have a guide to explore the city of Marrakesh when it comes to Fashion and Lifestyle¬†and I hope that I helped you planning your next trip and finding your own little treasure!
