Wailea, Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
This holiday season, Missoni, one of the most revered names in fashion design, will be celebrating at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea with a one-of-a-kind Missoni Christmas tree and an exclusive pop up shop, now through January 3rd, 2015. Missoni, retailer Seaside Luxe, and the Resort have collaborated to create Missoni spaces around the property that represent the unmistakable style and values imbued in every Missoni collection.
The acclaimed fashion house, founded in 1953 by Ottavio Missoni and his wife, Rosita, has provided the Resort with vintage ornaments from the family’s personal collection – all crafted from the brand’s signature knit fabrics - to decorate the Resort’s stately 15-foot Christmas tree. “We have been building a relationship with Missoni for years,” says Four Seasons Resort Maui’s General Manager Jean Claude Wietzel. “We consider it a great privilege that they have entrusted us with these very special Missoni family keepsakes for the season.”
The tree reflects the rich history and vibrant culture of Missoni, a company that has been family-run for over sixty years and which has come to epitomize the best of Italian luxury. The tree, which is the only luxury-brand themed tree on the island and the only one of its kind in the world, is located in the luxury Resort’s open-air lobby and is open to the public for viewing.
Also stationed on the lobby level, an 800 square-foot pop shop will pay tribute to the iconic, colorful world of Missoni. The “flagship pop up store” will be the first in the brand’s history and will house Missoni women’s wear, men’s wear, beachwear, children’s wear, and merchandise from the Missoni Home collection. Four Seasons Maui Missoni exclusives also will be available for a limited time. Guests, visitors and locals are invited to stop by the shop to enter to win the ultimate holiday gift, a hand-loomed cashmere Missoni throw, valued at $1,100.
In addition to the Christmas tree and pop up shop, two Luxury Cabanas at the Resort’s renowned Serenity Pool have recently been re-outfitted in Missoni Home décor. Every detail of the Resort’s Missoni holiday will be curated by the design house in collaboration with Seaside Luxe to create a unique experience for Four Seasons Maui Resort guests and visitors.
