Think of yachting and certain words spring to mind: exclusive, privilege, indulgence, prestige and privacy are just a few. Things have changed: once the preserve of the very wealthy and the super-elite, life on the ocean waves is now enticing a new type of traveler.
In fact, lavish, full-frills tourism has become an emblem of barefoot luxury. The ability to pull anchor on a whim and set sail to the next secret destination is to enjoy the definitive bespoke travel experience.
Yet while the desire to escape and truly relax is still high on the priority list, simply having leisure time remains the ultimate luxury.
A perfectly poised luxe palette features burnished gilt hues and lustrous opalescent shades represented by Crystal Bronze Pearl, Crystal Ivory Cream, Crystal Iridescent Dove Grey Pearl and White Opal.
Jewelry has a seductive aura of affluence created by the use of precious metals and baroque pearls set in refined, contemporary silhouettes. Adjustable settings allow chokers and chains to evolve, while floral highlights punctuate dainty pieces. Fluid and organic, sea-inspired crystal-encrusted surfaces dominate cocktail jewelry looks.
Apparel is sleek and sophisticated. Key pieces conjure a modern muse—think floaty kimono kaftans and pajama-inspired tailoring for graceful poolside glamour. Patterns are bold and monochrome to bring defined elegance to simple shapes. Cutouts embellished with pearl and crystal clusters add flashes of interest.
Accessories are oversized: hats, bags and eyewear are larger-than-life, showing off high-end materials complete with chic personalized monograms that give a nod to a “member of the club” status.
Not just for elegant daywear and cocktail-hour looks, the Leisure trend theme can also be found in luxury interiors. Here, streamlined geometrics adapted from modern yacht designs are softened with the use of plush velvets in sea-foam tones. Sleek shapes with highly reflective surfaces create major style notes.
