Come sail away with deep, dark Panay. The ideal blend of sultry and moody, lighthearted and playful, this collection’s pitch-black background and delicate red and white flowers balance each other out like the most perfect yin and yang. On a crystal-clear night with no clouds in sight and a big, bright moon suspended overhead, watch Panay spring to life before your eyes: a deep, dark forest awash in light against the infinite blackness that surrounds it.
This collection’s namesake island, the sixth-largest and fourth-most populous slice of the Philippines, is no stranger to expansive natural beauty. Panay is surrounded by striking turquoise waters on all sides, with the Visayan Sea to the east, the Guimaras Strait running alongside it, and the Panay Gulf cradling it from underneath.
Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of tourist hordes, this island is most often used as a stopover on the way to explore the famed White Beach on nearby Boracay – but that doesn’t mean it’s not a treasure trove of culture and beauty all on its own! Iloilo City’s fabulous Spanish colonial churches offer a peek into Panay’s history, and a riverfront boardwalk offers a gorgeous view of the water.
Whether you’re on the hunt for the perfect triangle top or a hip-hugging high-waisted bottom, this collection has it all. As always, each of our Skye swim pieces was designed with bodies of all kinds in mind, so we just know you’ll find your perfect floral fit with dreamy Panay.
