Think of those pieces that just sum up summer. Whether it’s a perfectly-cut bikini or a vividly-coloured day dress, as soon as you take them out of your suitcase, the trip truly begins. One&Only Resort’s Limited Edition collection is a little capsule of exactly those pieces. Created in collaboration with 10 designers to celebrate their 10th anniversary, Matthew and the team specially created this hand-dyed Rainbow Lace Kaftan.
Months ago, the studio looked back at the spring/summer 2002 collection Nu-Topia – feel-good designs in a neon palette of holiday hues. It captured that jet-set vibe with its dip-dyed rainbow look. Weeks of experimentation in lace dying technique followed (and many stained finger tips!). The final kaftan melts in a rainbow of sunny colours over delicate white lace. Its silhouette has been modernised with a fresh new cut and macramé braided belt.
“The kaftan expresses that sense of luxury jet-set associated with my label and the One&Only Resorts.”
“For the perfect luxury get away I’d always check out their resorts first. Some of my most memorable holidays have been spent there,” Matthew added. So now we know just where we’ll be going for our winter escape, and exactly what we will be packing…
The kaftan, as well as the rest of the collection from designers including Charlotte Olympia and Orlebar Brown, will be available at One & Only Resorts from January 2014.
