Launching the new Vacay Newport Collection
Posted on February 04 2016
As we launch our Newport collection, it got me thinking about that beautiful New England city by the sea and why I love it. To me, it’s quintessential New England. From the moment you arrive, you’re surrounded by the old world grandeur and history of this charming and beautiful city. The smell of the sea air, sight of the glistening ocean and the bustle of visitors on Thames Street immediately draws you in. As a sailor, I love watching the many sailboats in the harbor, and long to be in one of them!
Newport’s history is remarkable. Not only is it home to some of the most spectacular mansions, or “summer cottages” as they were named by their famed owners, but Newport is also one of the US’s oldest cities with sights dating back to the late 1600s! If you haven’t been to Newport, RI, it’s worth adding to your Bucket List. And, don’t forget to get a lobster roll before you leave! For more information on Newport check out The Preservation Society of Newport County.
Vacay’s Newport collection draws inspiration from Newport’s coastline and nautical focus. With navy and white, and clean lines, it strives to be as sophisticated and classic as its namesake.
