This October, Patina Maldives, Fari Islands is set to host a collaborative festival that reframes the ocean as the crucible of cross-cultural human connection and features fashion, art, and wellness collaborators. Cosmopolitan Ocean, the second instalment of its signature Pathways series, will take place from 26th – 29th October 2023, and will be marked by the unveiling of an exclusive STAMPD x Patina Maldives capsule streetwear collection; a bespoke Cosmopolitan Ocean scent by Haeckels; and a new original art installation by activist-artist Pam Longobardi.
- An intersensory opening ritual in which Welsh electronic musician and producer Kelly Lee Owens will soundscape the unveiling of a bespoke, ocean-safe Mycelium-packaged Cosmopolitan Ocean parfum from Margate’s natural skincare and wild fragrance wizards, Haeckels.
- LA-based streetwear label Stampd will drop Patina’s much-anticipated debut clothing collaboration, a capsule collection that reimagines the role of the ocean in the circle of life, alongside an exclusive exhibition of limited-edition photographs by label founder Chris Stamp.
- Oceanic Global ‘Artist in Nature’ and founder of collaborative artistic research and activism initiative, Drifters Project, Pam Longobardi, will add a large-scale ocean plastics art installation inspired by marine archaeology to Patina Maldives’ notable permanent collection.
