Presenting a bold series of ready-to-wear clothing and travel accessories created by Chufy founder Sofia Sanchez de Betak in partnership with The Luxury Collection.

Travel-minded style enthusiasts are familiar with the name Sofia Sanchez de Betak of CHUFY, am of-the-moment brand known for its colorful ready-to-wear essentials and accessories, all inspired by its founder’s globetrotting adventures. In her role as one of The Luxury Collection’s esteemed Global Explorers, Sanchez de Betak has created a collection of bold, bright designs with our well-traveled guests and followers in mind.

The Luxury Collection’s array of global properties exude an open-minded opulence and a deep appreciation for world travel.

Meet Sofia Sanchez de Betak

Global Explorer: Sofia Sanchez De Betak

Born in Buenos Aires and based in New York, Sofia Sanchez de Betak is both an art director and style consultant in addition to her role as founder of an internationally-coveted fashion brand. The sharp-eyed world traveler has collaborated with brands ranging from Chanel and Chloe to Valentino and Vogue, and is sought after for her ability to engage in vivid visual storytelling through her creations.

As a Global Explorer for The Luxury Collection, she searches for travel experiences that highlight the true essence of each destination she chooses around the globe. She is united with her fellow Global Explorers by their shared fluency in world cultures.

CHUFY x The Luxury Collection

The CHUFY x The Luxury Collection series encompasses a loungewear-based capsule collection of pajamas, robes, kimonos, and sleep masks, all rendered in silk, viscose, or cupro, an innovative cotton-based fabric beloved for its silky smoothness and environmental sustainability.

Chufy Kimonos for the Luxury Collection: Kangoo

From Dubai-inspired desert prints to artistic influences direct from Japan, the pieces each convey a distinct sense of place with a mood to match. The capsule collection is inspired by Sanchez de Betak’s global travels during which she experienced destinations through the lens of The Luxury Collection’s celebrated hotels, including Suiran in Kyoto and The Prince Gallery in Tokyo.

The Luxury Collection Luggage Series by Globe-Trotter, produced in collaboration with the famed British luxury luggage brand, is designed by Sanchez de Betak as well, featuring shades of blue and white accented by touches of black, as well as Globe-Trotter’s signature handmade leather trim and iconic gold hardware.

The Luxury Collection Luggage by Globe-Trotter: Athens

The interior of each piece is lined with cotton linen and features a colorfully illustrated scavenger map of one of four destinations, a design quartet inspired by Athens, Messinia, Mykonos, and Santorini. This homage to Greece harks back to the original “Golden Age of Travel” in the 1950s and 1960s — those halcyon days of vintage steamer trunks and the rise of the luxury jetliner. 

Each of The Luxury Collection’s collaborative pieces with Sofia Sanchez de Betak and CHUFY involves rich colors, imaginative design, and an idea of the stories of the places that sparked their inspiration. Influenced by vintage fabrics and traditional garments collected during Sanchez de Betak’s travels, they’re made from high-quality fabrics in playful patterns and vivid colors.

To own a bit of travel-inspired luxury designed exclusively by CHUFY for The Luxury Collection, shop the Luxury Collection Store for the perfect piece, and take them along as you travel in style with the Globe-Trotter x The Luxury Collection luggage series.
