St. Regis Maldives Vommuli launches British designer Deborah Henning’s collection
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort has collaborated with British designer Deborah Henning, unveiling a seasonal range of her products at the resort’s beachfront boutique.
Dubai-based Henning, who has worked with brands including Alexander McQueen, recently visited the resort’s private boutique where she launched select pieces from her classic and bestselling collection. Luxury items from the AW17 collection, which were featured at the 2017 London Fashion Week runway show, are also stocked at the private island store.
Henning partnered with the retail directors of the resort to select the most stand out items, such as the printed ‘Long Lost Lover’ tee and the show-stopping ‘Thrill Seeker’ skirt, that reflect the image of the St. Regis Maldives Vommuli.
“I wanted to place items at The St. Regis that represent the environment of the resort; pieces that work beautifully in a beach setting, as well as when guests return home. The Thrill Seeker skirt, for example, works beautifully with a bikini as a cover up for the beach, just as well as it does over a slip dress for an evening out in a city. The delicate balance of day to night makes these pieces perfect for The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort,” Henning was quoted as saying in an announcement by the resort.
“I’m thrilled to work with such a prestigious name as the St. Regis. Having visited the Vommuli Resort, I’m blown away by the modern and forward thinking architecture of this venue. It’s a perfect fit for the brand.”
The conch-shell shaped Boutique is nestled on the white sand beach and is spread over two floors with an observatory tower that occupies the third floor. It is an ideal place to indulge the dramatic views of the Indian Ocean.
The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, named in the Condé Nast Traveler 2017 Hot List, is nestled on a private island in the secluded Dhaalu atoll, amidst thriving marine life. Just 40 minutes from the main Velana International Airport by seaplane, guests are transported to a newfound paradise. The all-villa resort’s unique design, inspired by the marine setting, has been created to evoke a sense of tropical island village living. Each of the 77 villas embody the perfect combination between privacy and luxury.
