ROYALS | Saudi Crown Prince Sparks Twitter Fashion Frenzy Over Luxury Jacket

RIYADH – – Twitter users are clearly feeling the cold. A cohort of fashion lovers on the social media platform have gone wild over gilet worn by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman while chairing Sunday’s board meeting of the public Investment Fund.

The prince showed off a $6.551 casual sleeves vest by U.K. luxury cashmere brand Franck Namani.

The stylish royal opted for the ‘Tobacco/Emerald’ color combination from the label’s Fall/Winter 2020/2021 collection, which features a camel – brown other juxtaposed with a bright teal – hued lining and delicate teal piping on the collar.

It is reported that many royal fans began searching for the vest online, only to be disappointed by the ultra – exclusive fashion brand’s website as it requires registration and a password to enter. 

But not to be outdone, fans soon found the traditional headwear or ‘shemagh’ worn by the crown prince, with one account tweeting that it was a Kashmiri Shahtoosh shawl that cost $746 (2,800 SAR).

It’s not the first time the Saudi Crown Prince has sparked a style storm online.

In 2019, he was photographed attending the Formula E races in Riyadh and for the occasion donned a navy-colored Barbour jacket worn over a crisp white thobe that immediately sent the internet into overdrive.

The outerwear item by British heritage brand Barbour sparked its own Arabic hashtag on Twitter – that translated to ‘Crown Prince’ jacket’ – with many taking to the social media platform to admire the look.
