One&Only has partnered with world-renowned Italian fashion house Missoni to create a capsule collection of coveted items for the winter sun season, including a bikini ($395), short beach dress ($620), kaftan ($900) and playsuit/romper ($745). The stunning new collection features a bespoke Missoni print, created exclusively for One&Only, designed in a colour palette that inspires comparisons with the lush tropical foliage and brightly coloured flowers found at One&Only’s luxury beach resorts around the world. The items offer a sense of effortless style for guests, whether they are enjoying lunch on the beach or an après-sun cocktail at the bar. This is a limited collection with just 250 pieces worldwide being sold at One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives, One&Only Cape Town in South Africa, One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius, One&Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas. The collection will soon be available at One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico.
One&Only Reethi Rah is celebrating the launch of this new collection with a ‘Missoni Month’ from mid-February. The exclusive Missoni print will be ever-present at the resort, with a bespoke Missoni buggy to transport guests from the boutiques and a fashion show at the weekly GM cocktail party.
“Missoni is one of the best known, loved and recognized fashion brands in the world and we are thrilled and privileged to announce our partnership with them to create these bespoke statement holiday pieces,” commented Preston Schroeder, Director of Retail for One&Only. “Fashion is an intrinsic part of our guests’ lives and collaborating with such a leading luxury designer, renowned for its sophisticated craftsmanship, is a real coup for us and allows us to provide something truly unique for our guests to enjoy both on holiday and at home.”
“We have a long standing relationship with One&Only, so it was a natural progression to move from creating one-off pieces for them to a capsule collection,” commented Angela Missoni, Creative Director of Missoni. “Boasting Missoni’s pioneering stripe aesthetic vision and unmistakable zigzag motif, these elegant items were inspired by the rainbow of vibrant colours found at One&Only’s luxury resorts and are a must-have for anywinter sun wardrobe.”
