State of Escape Introduces ‘The Reethi Rah Collection’

A Limited-Edition Capsule Collection Inspired by One&Only Reethi Rah in The Maldives

21 March 2019 - One&Only Reethi Rah, the ultra-luxury, all-villa resort set on one of the largest private islands in the Maldives, and Australian luxury accessories brand State of Escape, have announcedanexclusivenewcapsulecollectioninspiredby the serenity and beauty of the pristine white sand and vivid turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

This is the second instalment of the collaboration between One&Only and State of Escape, following the success of ‘The Wolgan Collection’ inspired by Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley in the Greater Blue Mountains in Australia, in 2017. Designed by State of Escape founders Brigitte MacGowan and Desley Maidment, ‘The Reethi Rah Collection’ consists of three colourways of the iconic Escape carryall that evoke the transition from land to sea, dawn to dusk.

All three pieces are distinct in their design and purposeful in their creation, combining State of Escape’s signature neoprene fabrications with its custom-made sailing rope to produce the perfect travel companion. Remarkably versatile, each of the bags in the range also represent the ultimate day-to-day accessory, combining beauty and functionality in what State of Escape’s designers describe as ‘beautility’.

“The Reethi Rah Collection celebrates the unmistakable colours that you experience following a stay at One&Only Reethi Rah – the magical soft blush hues during dusk, the creamy sand tones of the beach and the unforgettable blue tones of the Indian Ocean,” said designer and State of Escape co-founder Brigitte MacGowan. “We’ve loved telling the story of this breathtaking beach resort through our chosen colour palettes and hope that it too evokes the feelings of serenity and mindfulness experienced at One&Only Reethi Rah.”

Attention to detail during the design process and commitment to quality workmanship ensures that the bags are not only lightweight and washable, but are also effortlessly stylish. 

The limited edition collection comprises three colourways:

· ‘Scallop Shell’ Reethi Rah Escape carryall in Scallop Shell with Cannoli Cream interior and custom-made rope

· ‘Soft Sand’ Reethi Rah Escape carryall in Soft Sand with Cannoli Cream interior and custom-made rope

· ‘Airy Blue’ Reethi Rah Escape carryall in Airy Blue with Crystal Blue interior and custom-made rope

“One&Only Reethi Rah offers a blissful escape for guests to relax and rejuvenate in a captivating setting away from their busy lives,” said Jan B. Tibaldi, General Manager, One&Only Reethi Rah. “We hope that all guests depart our beautiful island feeling restored, energised and inspired, and we are delighted that State of Escape has captured this essence through the limited edition ‘Reethi Rah Collection’. Like One&Only Reethi Rah, State of Escape has a passion for exploring new experiences and the magic of escapes and we are thrilled to launch this exciting collaboration.”
