Best philanthropic resort wear

December 21, 2018

Resort wear takes on a new level of social responsibility with Pondichérie, the philanthropic line from designer Devon Fisher. After years of fighting for gender equality, women’s empowerment, and sustainable employment, Fisher purchased a hand-painted silk caftan in Pondicherry, India and began to dream up her future company. And that’s how one of the most beautifully crafted resort wear lines was founded. Let us introduce you to Pondichérie, our go-to resort wear, whether we’re crash padding at Soneva Jani in the Maldives or the Hotel du Cap in the South of France. We knew we were on the right track when we saw these caftans pop up on Aerin Lauder’s must-haves.

Each Pondichérie piece is crafted from hand-dyed fabric, which is woven using the techniques of a legacy of Indian artisans, locally sourced from Indian textiles, and made in New York City. Pondichérie puts an emphasis on empowering local Indian craftswomen, while simultaneously supporting commerce closer to home by piecing their line together in the United States. Their look-books include Petite (for children), Malibu, Montauk, and the Hamptons, all of which are exquisitely crafted and destination-inspired takes on flowing cover ups, tunics, jumpsuits, and dresses.

Pondichérie pieces are available in Sunni Spencer in the West Village and online
