We are all about poolside glamour and it’s even better when two sisters are behind the label. Stefania and Maria Christina Di Simone created Chio Di Stefania D in 1999, where the collection is manufactured exclusively in Italy. Their goal was to create a collection that contained a strong measure of high fashion and introduce the concept of “haute couture” to beachwear.

Chio is for that ultra glam jet setter that is modern and chic, yet sophisticated. We love that the fabulous beachwear and resort wear is versatile enough to be worn under the sun or a beach cocktail party. The fine delicate touches with Swarovski crystals, laser cut-outs and hand stitched by artisans make Chio a must-have for any luxurious globetrotter.

This beautiful printed kaftan (CA1424) with crystal and pearl embroidered lace sleeves was a huge hit on our trip to Maui. It was a showstopper in itself and got so many compliments while we watched the sunset. I wore a nude slip underneath it, as it is sheer. With the fine details and 100% silk material, you will feel like a goddess…
