With many hotels now acting as both curator and purveyor of the finest local Mauritius brands, the answer is often right under your nose.
Luxury cashmere brand In’am is a case in point. The sensuous knitwear can be found in a number of resorts across the island, as well as in five exclusive boutiques.
The name itself – which means ‘to reward oneself’ in Persian – is synonymous with style, comfort and well-being, and the innovative, trans-seasonal designs represent all facets of Mauritian heritage, from the natural colours of aqua lagoons and tropical bourgainvillea, to quirky British ‘cool’ and classic French styling.
Founded by Mauritian Shenaz Currimjee de Robillard in 1999, In’am is now firmly established as one of the nation’s genuine fashion success stories: a brand which, under the creative direction of de Robillard, has developed a chic, contemporary, confident identity appealing to women with an independent and discerning sense of style.
