Arabesque, Summer '23
Welcome to the golden age of Arabesque, where our story begins…
Built between 1978 - 1982 for the late Baron and Baroness di Portanova, the palatial residence is grandeur in every sense of the word and has played host to a myriad of legendary galas, dinner parties, private discos, and celebrity attendees such as: Joan Collins, Roger Moore, Frank Sinatra, and Sylvester Stallone. Oh if those walls could talk… Villa Arabesque remains a lavish jewel on Mexico's south pacific coast serving as a reminder of a bygone era and Acapulco's eccentric past. Most famously the lavish villa featured as the residence of villain Franz Sanchez in the 1989 James Bond film, Licence To Kill.
We invite you to take an intimate look at new season styles as part of our Arabesque, Summer ’23 collection. Inspired heavily by the mesmerising golden age of the jet set crowd, 70s discotheque, and moonlit soirees that took place at Arabesque. The collection features a strong use of rich jewel tones and feminine shapes to honour Arabesque’s ornamental design and flamboyance, while gold accents and contemporary detail bring the aesthetic of the collection to life.
The Soriya balconette bikini top features ruching technique at the sides, rear clasp fastening, our unique gold embellishment at centre, and thick wide-set straps that sit slightly off shoulder highlighting the décolletage for an elegant look.
A vintage-inspired shape designed to be worn above the hips with cheeky coverage. The Zita bottoms are finished with a zig zag stitch to create an irresistibly flattering fit.
A sophisticated triangle silhouette, the Juliette bralette bikini top is an update to our coveted Uma Top. While the style remains minimal, the details shine with clean cut triangle cups, rear clasp fastening, and slim adjustable shoulder straps embellished with our unique gold motif.
