“We are very excited to be a part of this collaboration with Seaside Luxe and to be able to feature MissoniHome’s textiles and collection in a unique way in our first ever outdoor retail space”
A limited edition structured canvas tote bag in the custom-created, exclusive MissoniHome fabric will be available at the two new Seaside Luxe boutiques at The Copacabana Palace in Rio de Janeiro and The Viceroy Anguilla, as well as retail locations at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and the Four Seasons Resort Maui. Available in December 2012, the tote bag will retail for $350 USD.
The exclusive fabric will also be used to create a seasonal outdoor boutique situated directly on the white sandy beaches of The Viceroy Anguilla. This glamorous cabana, draped in the custom Missoni print, will carry a variety of high-end warm weather essentials including swimwear, sunglasses and cover-ups. Opening December 19, 2012, the casual cabana-like beach store will offer guests the same mix of luxury brands and up-and-coming designers that all of the Seaside Luxe boutiques are known for.
“We are very excited to be a part of this collaboration with Seaside Luxe and to be able to feature MissoniHome’s textiles and collection in a unique way in our first ever outdoor retail space,” says Christopher Philips, Vice President of Sales, The Americas.
The Missoni Home and Seaside Luxe collaboration continues at the Copacabana Palace, where the VIP pool will be updated with items from the 2013 MissoniHome Collection, providing guests with an exclusive preview of the coveted brand’s latest collection. Scheduled to open in January 2013, this first look will be a full two months before the collection will be available at retail in March.
“The name Missoni is revered in luxury fashion and lifestyle, and we are honored to partner with the iconic brand to create one-of-a-kind beach chic items for our fashionable clientele,” says Lee Ann Sauter, CEO and founder of Seaside Luxe. “Along with our hospitality partners, Seaside Luxe is creating a luxurious lifestyle experience beyond the resort gift shop, for the stylish international jetsetter.”
The partnership with Seaside Luxe and MissoniHome originated at Seaside Luxe’s location at the Four Seasons Resort Maui with two custom-designed cabanas at the resort’s Serenity Pool. The two cabanas are fully decorated in playful MissoniHome stripes and bold patterns and include sofas, pillows, terrycloth towels, a personal cappuccino machine and a Missoni Style book for poolside reading.
