Inspired by Montenegro
Milena Đurđić for One&Only Portonovi: the unique fashion accessories collection
One&Only Portonovi celebrates the art of travel by launching the exclusive One&Only Portonovi by Milena Đurđić collection – the limited-edition silk scarves for ladies and pocket squares for gentlemen. Influenced by the natural beauty and rich heritage of the location, these unique scarves and handkerchiefs are a perfect Montenegrin gift, and the ultimate silk souvenir from the most luxurious resort on the Adriatic.
One&Only Portonovi sits in Herceg Novi, at the entrance of the magnificent Boka Bay, a sheltered idyll on Montenegro’s Adriatic coast surrounded by spectacular mountains and azure sea. Adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Kotor, Portonovi is designed on an impressive scale to reflect the architectural style of the old Venetian palaces of the region, including grand facades, majestic colonnades, signature red terracotta roofs, lush gardens and a golden sandy beach that rivals the finest of the Mediterranean.
The design of One&Only Portonovi by Milena Đurđić collection is inspired by the opulence of the resort, as well as the natural and cultural charms of the location – celebrating Montenegro as a beautiful and diverse country. Its misty mountains and deep, clear waters are presented by colours and shapes: with dominant shades of tranquil blues, sparkling gold, and bold black which drives in from the country’s name, Montenegro (Italian: Black Mountain).
"One&Only Portonovi celebrates the fashion of the destination," stated Michele Giraudo, General Manager of One&Only Portonovi. "Our cooperation with Milena Đurđić, a Montenegrin artist and fashion designer, is especially dear to us because it represents the beginning of a series of collaborations with prominent local artists that we are planning to create in the future."
Considering its captivating nature, as well as the rich cultural and historical heritage of Montenegro, Milena Đurđić says that the design process of these special pieces was both a responsibility and a privilege.
"I am honored because the ultra-luxury One&Only Portonovi has entrusted me with presenting my vision of Montenegro to their guests, with unique design on the finest silk," she noted. "I found the inspiration for these designs in the symbiosis of the natural beauties of our country, the maritime history of Kumbor and Herceg Novi, Montenegrin national costumes, and the feeling that comes to life when thinking about the magnificence of One&Only Portonovi", added Đurđić.
There are two designs of scarves for ladies and pocket squares for gentlemen, which can only be purchased at One&Only Portonovi. To order these exclusive pieces, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit oneandonlyportonovi.com.
