Welcome to the Pleasure Dome

The Pleasure Dome being the very hedonistic name of Talitha Getty's very hedonistic home in Marrakech.

Talitha Getty being one of the beautiful and the damned of the 60s, who became world famous as an icon of the Hippie De Luxe look championed so effectively in that era. Their was a life of full on debauchery, excess and glamour but today I'm only interested in the glamour. The Glamour of the Luxe Bohemian kind.

I figured its only polite to start out with one of the most iconic images of Talitha Getty...so here she is on a rooftop in Marrakech. I don't think that dude is her husband though.

First up we have two bee-yoo-ti-ful kaftans from the Queen of beachwear, Melissa Odabash. Whenever I get round to swanning off on some super exotic ultra luxurious beach holiday on a private island in my private jet....I'll be sure to pop in. But in the meantime, while I'm waiting for all those high octane arrows to line up...I might just save up for one. The Amanda on the left is stunning in its pure white simplicity. And I am loving the gold detail of the Hannah on the left. Which do you prefer?

Next up, from Melissa Odabash again, we have the sexy Palm Beach on the left and the monochrome detail Savannah on the right. Which would you rock in your kasbah?

Now we have the diaphonous options. The pink embellished number is from the Hippie Deluxe favourite Matthew Williamson. The white semi sheer stripy option is from my favourite new name in beachwear Vitamin A. Again Matthew or Vitamin A?

The best accessories for this look are the earthy, nature inspired type of fabulousity. The tortoiseshell sunnies, the big chunky bangles, the bamboo inspired earrings, the snakeprint. You catch my drift and EVERYTHING in this divine selection is from Tiger Tem.
