Beyond the souks, Marrakech is a shopper’s paradise. With designers opening showrooms around town – the old city known as the medina, the new city known as Gueliz and Sidi Ghanem’s industrial zone – the choice for fine fashion, accessories, interior décor and design is near endless.

With Stephen DiRenza as creative director of retail operations at the shop inside Majorelle Gardens, the collection here reflects local cultural savoir-faire from the Berber and Arab cultures. Expect embroidered leather bags, finely woven blankets and tribal-inspired jewelry, all of which is handmade where possible. Pops of color make their way into the collections as well. After all, the shop is housed inside Yves Saint Laurent’s former home in Marrakech, the city he credits for inspiring his use of colour.

It’s easy to miss the entrance to Mustapha Blaoui, but once inside it’s easy to get lost. This sprawling shop is packed with carpets, colorful basket-ware, leather side-tables, antiques and artefacts from around the world. Add to this chests and cabinets made from bone, artwork, pottery from Tamegroute, tribal seating, endless lighting options and much more.
