The Luxury Collection again teamed with artist Sofía Sanchez de Beta to unveil an exclusive capsule collection, this time with 54 pieces inspired by the Arabian Desert and Emirati culture. The ready-to-wear line includes an array of separates created with Dubai’s climate in mind, such as lightweight blouses and tunics, flowing jumpsuits, long skirts and dresses.
“The Luxury Collection’s hotels and resorts are such unique expressions of their locale, and exploring this destination through the lens of their properties was eye-opening,” said Sofía Sanchez de Betak. “The United Arab Emirates is a country of unconventional architecture with many awe-inspiring and opulent buildings, and The Luxury Collection is able to showcase the destination’s captivating contrast between desert and city experiences. Dubai, and on a larger scale, the UAE, has solidified itself on the global map as a travel destination, yet it’s amazing to see how this country and culture remain deeply rooted in its rich history.”
“Much like The Luxury Collection, Sofía is passionate about exploring new destinations, sharing unforgettable indigenous experiences, and embracing perspectives that allow people to connect with travel and the world around them in a new way,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection. “This creative ability, deep understanding of what it means to be a world traveler and Sofia’s adventurous, effervescent spirit have made her the ultimate Global Explorer. Sofia has already shared so much about Greece and Japan through her exploration with The Luxury Collection, and we are excited to see her showcase the highly unique cultural experience of Dubai in this latest collaboration.”
