There are a few things that make one feel utterly luxurious more than lounging in clothing made of silk. The smooth, lightweight fabric rests comfortably on the skin; its beautiful, lustrous sheen adds pizzazz that may be missing in life currently mostly spent at home.
Patty Balingod, designer and owner of Syne Label is no stranger to the beauty of silk. Her atelier specializes in silk wear, most popularly evening dresses and bridal gowns. But as the pandemic pulled many of us back into our homes, the public’s interest in loungewear has become stronger than ever.
And Syne took advantage.
“Since quarantine, we’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the restock of our Silk Intimates collection, which was a collaboration I did with Lanai a few years back. When we put that on sale last May, the collection sold out in days,” shared Balingod.
With an emerging need for stylish loungewear in the new normal, Syne Home was born.
Using knowledge gained from working extensively with silk for five years, Syne Label’s skilled team of silk sewers started to work on a collection of silk lounge sets.
“With our clients’ needs as our utmost priority, we created a new line inspired by our most requested looks,” she said.
The collection consists of Syne Label’s signature double cowl neck sleeveless and shorts set and a basic silk tee and shorts set. The double cowl neck, Balingod said, was a highly requested detail from her clients.
Aside from the double layer scoop neckline, the set also features adjustable straps and is paired with gartered shorts for a sophisticated but comfortable lounging combination. The set is available in emerald green, stone gray, and black.
Meanwhile, the classic oversized silk tee paired and high-waist, double layer gartered shorts set comes in olive green, stone gray, and bone white.
Balingod sets Syne Home loungewear apart from other similar silk pieces available in the market today. According to the designer, her label’s clothing is made of high quality 22-25mm (momme) of silk, which is equivalent to 600-750 thread count.
“I created these classic silk sets considering their wearability, versatility, and convenience. When I think about the perfect silk loungewear, I think of something that can be worn in and out of your home. Something with a timeless design and good craftsmanship to last a lifetime,” enthused Balingod.
Syne’s silk pillowcases, meanwhile, feature 19mm. Other soon-to-be-launched silk home essentials include face masks, beddings, and room slippers.
