Liwa Trading announced the launch of Chaps—a timeless American sportswear brand— with the opening of two flagship stores in the UAE for Spring 2016. Offering a complete lifestyle collection for the family, Chaps represents fashion that is casual, confident, spirited and fresh. Chaps is available in the Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai, and the Al Wahda Mall in Abu Dhabi, with more stores scheduled to open in the coming years.

Special details provide each garment with a unique twist. Popular Chaps designs include the perfect-fitting shirt in smart stripes or checks, along with classic, flattering pants. The signature Chaps polo shirt is also an important part of the brand, drawing on a sporty heritage. Splashes of vibrant color easily combine with the rest of the collection.

Inspired by the laid-back attitude of Key West, the Menswear Spring collection ushers in easy style in a palette of indigo blues and soft brights. Knits are must-have layering pieces for the season, such as a French rib quarter-zip sweater pulled over a graphic T-shirt or a buffalo check button-down—great for date night or brunch in the city. Always smart and sophisticated in a custom fit; the premium cotton dress shirts are suited for a busy lifestyle, outfitting a stylish professional on the move at the office or at a festive party with friends.
Spring break has never looked cuter with made-for-play polos, versatile shirts and bright check and stripe button-downs for boys. These wardrobe staples can be mixed and matched on any day and topped off with a stripe belt for a fun finishing touch.
