Hotel Cala di Volpe, the iconic Sardinian hotel tucked inside the timelessly glamorous Costa Smeralda, has announced the renewal of its partnership with luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana for a second year.
The collection, inspired by the idyllic landscapes of the island of Sardinia and even drawing inspiration from the hotel itself, returns this summer with a new palette of prints and designs. It is available exclusively in Dolce & Gabbana’s pop-up store within the hotel.
The 2022 Exclusive Collection pays homage to the romantic charm of Hotel Cala Di Volpe’s bay, in which its picturesque groves and Mediterranean landscape are accented by the traditional patterns of the fashion house’s heritage; flowers, polka dots, and even traditional sailor knots.
The new print is a celebration of both pillars of iconic Italian luxury. It will also feature an original collage compromised of postcards celebrating Italy’s coastal towns, in which lashings of vivid blue water and sun-soaked scenes are featured.
As the beloved destination celebrates its 60th anniversary, the Capa di Volpe Exclusive Collection by Dolce & Gabbana rectifies the hotel’s status as one of the indisputable leaders of luxury lifestyle across the Mediterranean.
The anniversary celebrations extend beyond the Dolce & Gabbana collection: from September, the Costa Smeralda and its four luxury hotels will host a series of events local to the area. This includes the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup organised by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, the Costa Smeralda Classical Music Festival, and also a live music event held at Nikki Bar alongside a number of golf and sailing events.
The Hotel Cala di Volpe, which many will know was originally Prince Aga Khan’s private home and later a location for James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), has also recently opened its doors of chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s new beachside restaurant. The restaurant, located on the hotel’s private beach and designed by renowned architect Matteo Thun, brings chef Nobu’s unique fusion philosophy to Costa Smeralda, for a masterclass in gastronomy in the most luxurious of regions.
