Bucking the trend of the sea of phenomenal international brands that are currently crossing oceans to come to us, we’ve seen has seen a steady growth in the number of homegrown, Indian brands that have taken their ventures international in the last couple of years. From Bira retailing in the US, to Nappa Dori opening in Maldives and London, and now Nicobar going international for the first time ever with their new Maldives store at the sybaritic Soneva Fushi (Kunfunadhoo Island, Baa Atoll).
For the moment, they are popping up till November 2019 (we’ll keep you posted with the updates), and will take over a beautiful space that has a multitude of things; their resort wear line, the Aparna Chandra X Nico collection, their signature light luggage and more. The space itself – with its tropical white-and-tiki vibe and large window-walls looking out onto a fresh, green landscape – looks like it’ll be a delight to browse. Keep an eye out if you’re at Soneva Fushi this year and feel like seeing a friendly face.
