In celebration of its 20th anniversary, Blue Palace, A Luxury Collection Resort in Crete, Greece, announced an exclusive collaboration with Greek fashion brand Zeus+Δione. Telling its story through this limited collection of accessories, Blue Palace and Zeus+Δione aim to create a synergy epitomizing elegance and sophistication.
Blue Palace, part of PHĀEA, a female- and family-run collection of properties in Crete, combines bold design, responsible living and original experiences, offering guests one-of-a-kind Greek hospitality with virtues of care and authenticity at its core. Blue Palace continues to redefine the essence of genuine Greek hospitality through meaningful concepts giving prominence to a truer and more timeless Greece.
Blue Palace x Zeus+Δione introduces an exclusive limited collection capturing the refined aesthetics of both brands, which feature the signature Spathoto motif showcased on a range of accessories such as hats, shoulder bags, bracelets and pouches, available in navy-and-white cotton for both men and women.
Marios Schwab, creative director, Zeus+Δione, said, “Contentment and relaxation were an important factor to consider when designing the collection for the Zeus+Δione x Blue Palace collaboration. The deep blue against the white, just like all these elements surrounding us on a Greek holiday, set the tone for the signature Spathoto weave. The tote and pouches are created to hold all the things you want to travel with during your stay, whilst the details on the recycled macramé bracelets made with off-cut fabrics -traces of our 10-year journey- tell stories of myths and folktales.”
The collection is available to purchase at Blue Palace beginning this month.
Early on, pickleball had something to do with pickles. Pickles the dog, that is. In one story, the game was named for a family dog that ran off with the ball between sets.
Not a word was spoken as I settled into a cozy spot on the outdoor terrace just outside the main lodge at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge in Uganda. The air was so still the ice in my single malt seemed to echo off the forest in the distance as it clanked against the glass. I sat among a handful of fellow adventurers, each sitting silently beneath the night sky for one collective goal. Moments earlier, we learned a troop of mountain gorillas had made their way down the mountain near our lodge, and we left our meals to instead sit in eager anticipation of hearing the guttural grunts of the primates below. The chills on my arms never left me that night, even as I made my way up a stone pathway to my personal banda (guestroom). Thankfully, sleep came quickly for me that night as I drifted into dreams of what my next day would bring.
Five Tips to Help Minimize Potential Travel Problems
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
