Photo art meets horology – Introducing Majed Al Sabah
Posted by WatchAnish on
Born into royalty, Sheikh Majed Alsabah is the grandson of the 10th Amir of Kuwait and the nephew of the current Shaikh Sabah Alahmad Aljaber Alsabah. Shaikh Majed single handedly put Kuwait right up there in the worldwide style stakes, competing to be the fashion capital of the middle east. A journey that started with Villa Moda and brands like Prada, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Ferragamo and many others to the more recently 21 Carrots and TFK (The Fragrance Kitchen); a Kuwaiti based fragrance house which was inspired by sensory memories associated with his beloved grandmother.
Named “Sheikh of Chic” by Times Magazine, Sheikh Majed could not be more humble and down to earth. It is only when you meet him that you can really appreciate how brilliant he is.
On Instagram, @MajedAlSabahKuwait’s account (click here) screams of ingenuity and inspiration. He has a way of presenting subjects in an artistic and innovative way. The photos range from frozen chicken, to fashion accessories to handcuffed Kit Kats. The newest chapter in this artistic journey is luckily for us watches! More precisely, the collection of Mr. Abbas Yacoub Behbehani @ayyb55 (click here), the owner of perhaps one of the largest, if not the largest collection of complicated watches in Kuwait! It’s a pleasure for us to share these images with you, and they are the first in a series of horology themed photos we will be bringing you in association with the Sheikh. We hope you enjoy them!
