With the cold weather and holiday bustle setting in, I’m taking another virtual vacation – this time via Vogue’s December editorial featuring Carolyn Murphy. Lensed by Mario Testino, Carolyn sports sleek black and white fashions on the sunny Tuscan coast. Every season, holiday or other, is the perfect time to get away!
The editorial is set at the famed Il Pelicano Hotel - picture-perfect and wonderfully glamorous:
"Set on Italy’s lush, unspoiled Monte Argentario peninsula, Il Pellicano is the embodiment of la dolce vita, as much a way of life as it is a five-star Relais & Châteaux hotel... Founded in 1965 by American socialites Patricia and Michael Graham, the 18-room property and its nine adjacent cottages were purchased in 1979 by one-time guest Roberto Sció, who guided the expansion of the Tuscan farmhouse–styled retreat. Over the years the cream of the European jetset has passed through its doors, including the Pucci, Missoni, Fendi, Niarcho and Casiraghi families." - Nowness
