Our living world is the inspiration for Resort 2020—Port Zienna’s Collection No. IV. As odes that extol the bright notes of nature, nine looks are revealed here amid grassy dunes, rugged shores and beckoning coastal roads. Committed to sustainable practices, we tailor our luxurious pieces from eco-friendly fabrics of superior quality. This collection is built primarily from sumptuous Peruvian organic cotton, as well as woven baby alpaca wool, cupro and Tencel™. The essence of Port Zienna is not only the realization of aesthetic ideals, but also the expression of power and strength—evident here as always in our fine craftsmanship that approaches minimalist art.
