With its picturesque cliff-side villages and dramatic alpine scenery, Lake Como was the perfect backdrop for our Autumn Chill shoot, which showcases the ultimate transeasonal line-up of fine knits, tailored coats and easy-going jeans.
“In scouting our location, a wooden deck was of paramount importance to evoke the relaxed nature of the clothes but equally we wanted to retain the romance of this iconic Italian destination in our photos. Villa Lario offered the best of both worlds,” said Claudia De-Meis, Online Fashion Editor at harrods.com.
Perched on the glassy lake (complete with vintage Riva boat) and just across the bay from George Clooney’s famed holiday retreat, the newly-opened boutique hotel is a remodelled version of the 19th-Century villa owned by the Lombardi family. Incredibly chic, Villa Lario offers all the luxury amenities you would expect from a five-star hotel (sleek infinity pool, manicured gardens and a gourmet restaurant) without losing the charm and intimacy of a private villa.
A stone’s throw away from the nearby town of Bellagio, which boasts a host of local boutiques and quaint restaurants, Villa Lario is the ideal getaway for a suitably stylish minibreak.
