BINTAN ISLAND, Indonesia – Travellers know hotels manufacture their own bath and beauty products, their own signature scents, and occasionally their own bathrobes, but a show-stopping, runway-worthy collection of apparel is something quite rare. The Sanchaya is about to cultivate that rare ground.
This month, the estate is introducing The S’YA collection -- 20 items ranging from silk yao boxy tops, retro single mesh singlets and silk cotton sleeveless shirts, to silk linen flair shorts, rib cotton brought trousers, and cotton twill skinny jeans.
Natalya Pavchinskaya, the founder of The Sanchaya, a luxurious beachfront resort situated next to Singapore on Indonesia’s Bintan Island, said her debut apparel line marks a contemporary yet classic take on smart casual and sporty wear.
“The Sanchaya wants to go home with you; not merely in your memory bank, but in your suitcase, too,” said Pavchinskaya. “I wanted to design a collection for true travellers at heart so they could recapture, in a tangible way, that blissful, indulgent yet relaxed feeling you experience only on holiday.”
Fashioned from soft, sophisticated fabrics and various compositions of cotton, viscose, silk and lycra, the collection, Pavchinskaya said, is “all about travelling light”.
The predominantly monochromatic S’YA items, of black, white, grey, and various hues of light blue, can be mixed and matched to suit the occasion, be it a casual brunch, a leisurely stroll in a park or a glamorous evening.
Rising model Richie Hines, who has appeared in runway shows for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Saint Laurent and Thom Browne, is the face of The S’YA line.
The collection’s contemporary classic style also draws inspiration from The Sanchaya’s award-winning colonial architecture, crisp, neutral tones and tropical beauty.
“The garments are designed to blend in with scenic spots across The Sanchaya -- our powder white sands, manicured croquet lawn, and The Bar with its vintage prints, antique telescopes and porter chairs,” said Pavchinskaya.
The S’YA line is currently available at The Sanchaya’s boutique named The Collection, and at selected clothing outlets in Singapore.
