Le Loft 271 (Jaledib-Antelias main street)
When we received the invitation from LE LOFT 271 ‘s manager Roula Salem Mansour to attend the launch of this innovative concept store, we just had to find out more about it!

Invitation to the Launch of Le Loft 271

Beirut has always been at the forefront of fashion – a reference point for the Middle East fashionistas (not to mention birth place of our own trend spotter Maya A. Kanaan), so it comes as no surprise that a store which includes an Art space, an Event venue AND a boutique for all art, design and fashion lovers finds its perfect setting in the Middle East’s Fashion Capital – Beirut!

A renovated Warehouse with an industrial look, surrounded by a small garden in a hidden street seconds away from Antelias Highway LE LOFT 271 will exhibit artwork on a continuous basis, so art lovers will be able to feast their eyes on stunning artwork whilst also browsing through the unique pieces and collections in the boutique which will be displayed along with  home accessories and Fashion accessories  designed by local and international talents.
