An unadulterated scenery along with the tranquil ambience of Portofino provided the perfect setting to shoot our Resort 2020 Collection. As a former designer swimwear model who lived and worked in Italy for many years, Melissa’s creativity and mastery is rooted in this alluring place so it’s also a delight to refresh the connection.


Nestled among the picturesque Italian Riviera coastline, the spectacular Belmond Hotel Splendido was our choice of location for the shoot. Belmond Hotel Splendido has been one of the most glamorous hideouts in Europe, having entertained Hollywood greats like Elizabeth Taylor and notable dignitaries. The stunning decor and understated elegance of this hotel captures the epitome of Italian glamour perfectly so it’s no wonder why it has been a popular haunt of the jet setters. Here, you won’t find any shortage of mesmerising views and luxurious adventures.


The hotel is enveloped with lush tropical gardens which makes for a great escape from the bustle of the village and offers the perfect surroundings to indulge in pampering sessions at the Wellness Centre. Equipped with expert therapists to soothe your mind, body and soul, you will find yourself pampered to perfection.

For adventure seekers, an array of luxurious experience  is offered by the hotel. If you’ve had your fill of lazy days by the pool, this is the perfect way to uncover the beautiful treasures of Portofino. Whether it’s a romantic dinner overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean Sea or a historical exploration, there’s an experience suited for everyone to take in the beauty of this charming village.

The best of Italian cuisine can be expected from the restaurants at the Belmond Hotel Splendido. Take a seat on the soaring terrace and enjoy breath-taking views of the Italian coastline as you tuck into fresh, succulent seafood dishes and fine regional wines. There’s also glitzy cocktail bars to spend your evening with friends at any hour.
