Sal y Limon: Cheap, ethnic and oh so pretty
Designer accessories are a fixture in our daily wardrobes, but sometimes we crave pieces that stand out more and exude a stronger character, and you rarely get those qualities from overly publicised seasonal must-haves. That’s where the cheaper, chicer and harder-to-find brands come in.
Sal y Limon, an alternative brand that deals exclusively with bangles, is all about creating individual style. The Sal y Limon bracelets come in four different sizes and offer a sensational variety of attractive colors and designs. They are hand painted and plated with real gold or real silver. They are not New Look cheap at AED 95 to AED 265, but inexpensive enough for anyone to be able to buy their entire season’s collection without having to break the bank. A bangle a day keeps sartorial monotony away.
Behind the brand Sal y Limon there is the story of two good friends. Raffaella Iten Metzger and Mehmet U. Inan, linked by their passion for fashion and accessories, they launched their first collection of SYL bracelets in 2009 – the collection turned out to be an immediate success.
With a great sense for fashion trends, Raffaella Iten Metzger creates all designs and also defines enticing new color palettes, twice per season. Mehmet U. Inan is in continuous search of new materials and innovative products all over the world to add to the hip collection of Sal y Limon and to keep the successful brand growing.
