CAMILLA has partnered with the world’s largest independent luxury hotels collection, the Leading Hotels of the World to reimagine some of Italy’s most iconic hotels in true CAMILLA style: as limited edition, hand painted prints splashed across luxurious silks and satins. The next chapter begins in Venice, at the illustrious Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel.
When I’m in town, I’ll slip into Martinuzzi, a timeless Venetian homewares store in Piazza San Marco, where I’ll load my arms with lace tablecloths from Burano and antique lampshades.
Libreria Acqua Alta, a charming vintage bookshop inspired by Venice's floods, keeps its books safe in bathtubs and old gondolas. Two friendly cats slink in and out between the books, which include vintage art, local guides and modern Italian literature.
Honour the city’s opulence with statement pieces to make for wearable art. Opera skirts paired with a crisp white shirt, bold pyjama suits with feathered cuffs worn with sky high heels encrusted with jewels. Slinky twist front dresses with lashings of gold jewellery. Bold sunglasses and a red lip, always.
