Chasing an elusive island breeze, our summer destination leads us to a sandy alcove where we eagerly await check-in at Hotel Paradiso.
Inspired by the island hideaway of Lamu, a bustling yet tiny jewel in the Indian Ocean where the convergence of cultures and traditions makes for a profuse melting pot of textural richness - Summer ‘24 welcomes sunkist colours in new shapes and silhouettes, lightweight and sustainable fabrics, intricate detailing and assorted prints.
The collection’s artist collaboration features hand drawn interpretations of actual photos recreated by Alan Berry Rhys, with the artist’s distinctive work influenced by vintage postcards and old signage featured on a vibrant sundry of key stories. A selection of bespoke jewellery items based on Alan’s artwork are available too, drawing inspiration from the busy fishing ports and unique island life akin to Lamu.
As day gives way to night, we trace our footprints back through the palms, the air heavy with the aroma of sun-ripened fruits and flowers. A winding labyrinth that leads us along the coral stone walls, we find ourselves at our journey’s end: under the reassuring glow of Hotel Paradiso.
