Describing Portofino as a fishing village now appears almost ludicrous, as it is so closely associated with luxury and an elegant lifestyle.

Yet that is what is once was – before the “rich and beautiful” moved into this small town on the Italian Riviera. Ever since, Portofino with its pastel-coloured houses, wonderful views of the Ligurian Sea and little harbour where mega yachts now anchor has inspired people to dream.

If Dior loved Portofino…

…then we simply must too. The viscose body from the new Diorriviera Collection is a must-have for the trendy spa town and also a statement.
