DBS Journal Next Story


Hidden away in a dreamy bay near Porto Ercole, the southernmost tip of Tuscany, is the legendary Il Pellicano hotel. The villa, built on the cliffs in 1965, has already attracted many great names such as Jürgen Teller, John Swope and Slim Aarons with its incomparable mixture of beauty, sex appeal and intimacy.

Every year, the hotel – which is part of the Leading Hotels of the World consortium – cooperates with selected fashion designers. Guests have a unique opportunity to marvel at and buy fashion pieces at a trunk show with an atmosphere like no other, curated by vice president and creative director Marie-Louise Sciò.

It’s no surprise that DBS designer duo Rianna + Nina will be kicking off this year’s défilée on 15 June. This will be the label’s first trunk show abroad. They have recently organised successful pop-up events on Mykonos, Sylt, Capri and in New York, and presented their first collection last July as part of the BERLINER SALON.

We would absolutely love to be there!
