Overlooking the Adriatic Sea, rooms are graciously decorated in warm, sunny colors while the sleek bathrooms have Philippe Starck fittings. In terms of leisure, the villa offers three entertainment rooms appointed with plasma satellite TV/DVD, a tennis table, and a couple of charming terraces ideal for sunbathing.
Launched in 1999 as a denim brand out of an apartment in Sydney, Australia, Sass & Bide has since expanded into a full range of women’s wear and, more recently, opened its first U.S. store, its 21st worldwide. Akin Creative and Guild worked together on the narrow, 2,000-square-foot New York space, a former gallery. Their major move was to build five enormous “tree trunks” inspired by the driftwood collected by Sass & Bide creative director and cofounder Heidi Middleton. The structures are actually a jersey fabric that’s been soaked in resin, draped over a steel frame, then painted.
