For the first collection in their Destinations Series, Sillage chose an island with a unique ecosystem located in Yemen: the island of Socotra. This colorful collection pays homage to the island’s luxurious flora.
Socotra is home to many unique animal and plant species only found on this island, including a dozen birds, as well as 307 types of plants and trees (the most famous being the Dragon’s Blood Tree and Socotra Desert Rose) that are represented through our designs in this upcoming collection.
This collection’s prints have been designed by Kobayashi Ikki, a Japanese graphic designer. Kobayashi reinterpreted the island's iconic trees in his own way.
Sillage decided to place these “trees” in a way that’s reminiscent of a paisley bandana pattern and placed them next to each other to create an all-over print. The printed Arabic text is "سقطرى", which means “Socotra”. The material we used is similar to traditional bandana fabric, and is lightweight and breathable, perfect for the upcoming Summer season.
