These Designer Exclusives Are Perfect for Your Tropical Holiday Getaway
Camilla, Issa and more land at five beachy One&Only resorts this month.
If your holiday travel plans include someplace tropical, like say the One&Only Palmilla in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, or the One&Only Reethi Rah, where the Beckham family spent last Christmas, think about leaving some room in your suitcase. That’s because select One&Only resorts have launched a few enticing exclusive designer capsule collections in their boutiques.
The shops at Palmilla, the Maldives’ Reethi Rah, Ocean Club (the Bahamas resort where Beyonce and Jay Z have stayed), Cape Town and Le Saint Géran in Mauritius were the lucky recipients of special collections by Marie France Van Dame, Rivieras men’s footwear, Camilla and Issa, which is favored by the Duchess of Cambridge. The latter’s offering is a reworked version of its popular Tania drape dress ($650), available in an appropriately tropical aquamarine shade.
As for the Marie France Van Dame capsule, it consists of 10 day-to-night pieces — a column dress, caftans and metallic travel bag among them (ranging from $229-$720) — that work on a plane, lounging on the beach or out to dinner. True to form for the Aussie designer, the Camilla collection’s crystal-beaded dresses, chiffon caftans ($660) and printed bikinis ($300) are especially ideal for the pristine beaches of the Maldives, where they’re exclusively available. Perhaps Posh will pick one up this Christmas.
