Fête Chinoise x SENTALER

Fête Chinoise spent some time speaking with Canadian designer Bojana Sentaler (right), whose jackets are worn by the likes of Kate Middleton and Megan Markle. Yang Mi is one of Bojana’s favourite stars in Asia. And she really hopes to see Vogue China’s Editor-in-Chief, Angelica Cheung in a SENTALER one day.

 Her exquisite jackets were born out of her entrepreneurial spirit, leading her to travel the world seeking out histories, lifestyles, and trends. She met fashion guru Karl Lagerfeld in Dubai and fell in love with beautiful alpaca fabric in Peru for its warmth, soft touch, and ethical sourcing. She married femininity, elegance, and functionality with her brand. In 2009, SENTALER launched in Toronto and currently carries the most outstanding collection of luxury alpaca outerwear.  

We asked what has been the biggest challenge faced by Bojana and she humbly responds that it’s simply time: “we are constantly pushing and evolving in this industry.” SENTALER seeks opportunities tirelessly to bring quality and meaning to the fashion industry. Ultimately, Bojana wishes for SENTALER to become “an inspiration and aspiration to women around the world when they think about their dream coat.” Fête Chinoise had the opportunity to collaborate with Sentaler on a special project, and after experiencing the product, we have confidence that the integrity and innovation behind the brand will be welcomed by all.

SENTALER AND FÊTE CHINOISE 

We curated an exclusive opportunity to create three unique pieces — the only three in the world today, and each piece is one-of-a-kind! We invited one of the most respected masters and calligraphers in Canada, Master Shan, to hand-paint ancient Chinese calligraphy onto the luxurious liners of Bojana’s regal alpaca wool jackets. Bojana was ecstatic about the brilliant collaboration and perfect timing. Bojana tells with enthusiasm about the collaboration: “I am also very excited to introduce Féte Chinoise readers to SENTALER as the brand truly resonates with their values. Every detail of the Féte Chinoise keepsake magazine is thoughtfully done – from quality paper to stunning ink printing – just like SENTALER’s hand finishes. It is also the perfect timing too as SENTALER is launching in China and Hong Kong this month with Lane Crawford!” Guests of Fête Chinoise Signature Event in Toronto on January 26, 2019 will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind SENTALER jacket – there are ONLY three available!

SENTALER EXPANDS TO SHANGHAI, BEIJING, AND HONG KONG

This year, SENTALER’s expansion to Asia is a milestone for the brand. Bojana shares: “It has been a long-term goal for SENTALER to launch in Asia with the luxury department store Lane Crawford. I love the culture and I am excited to learn even more about what our customers in Asia are looking for.” Launching in four Lane Crawford locations, Asian audiences will find the beautiful alpaca jackets in Times Square (Shanghai), at Yintai Center (Beijing), on Canton Road and in IFC (Hong Kong). Of course, the collection will be also available worldwide online, with free shipping, customs, and duties.
