We pay tribute to the flavour of Paradise Island – home to The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort – with new fall pieces inspired by its tropical colour palette.

This Side of Paradise: Fall Fashion Inspired
by the Bahamas

The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, with its sun and sand aplenty, provides the perfect backdrop for
brilliant hues and energetic prints sure to illuminate the season ahead.

A longtime playground for discerning travellers and celebrities, Paradise Island has some of the world’s most beautiful natural beaches. The ribbon of white sand and azure water that makes up its northern shore – home to The Ocean Club,
A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas – is an idyllic setting for days spent lounging under the sun or strolling the Resort’s expansive gardens. This season, we celebrate the flavour of the island with new pieces inspired by its tropical colour palette.

Sun, sea and sky are yours in abundance: The Resort is set along an 8-kilometre
(5-mile) span of natural white-sand beach.

Birdsong and the rustle of towering palms provide a peaceful soundtrack on the breezy lawn that stretches from the Resort’s Crescent Wing to the sea. And in the Versailles Gardens – a fairy tale come to life by way of multi-tiered expanses of meticulous landscaping and stately statues – you’ll find the reconstructed 12th-century French Augustinian Cloisters, a notable island landmark.

One of several private villas at the Resort, the exclusive Bougainvilla – complete with personal infinity pool – shared screen time with James Bond in the 2006 film Casino Royale. The Bougainvilla holds three bedrooms within its 450 square metres (4,800 square feet) – a fourth is tucked away in the private garden.

The mirrored halves of the Versailles Gardens contain fresh surprises at every turn: hand-laid flint and sandstone walls, tranquil lily and koi ponds, and, beyond the Cloisters, a view of Nassau Harbour. Meanwhile, the Hartford Courtyard – a striking space at the heart of the Resort – is named for Huntington Hartford II, who in the early 1960s grew the former private residence into a resort destination.

From coconut palms and purple bougainvillea to the delicate orchids you’ll spot grafted onto trees – they’re regrown and recycled on site – the botanical beauty of the Resort grounds is a marvel to behold. The property Hartford purchased in 1959, known as Hog Island until he gave it a more suitable name, has transformed over the decades into the Caribbean hideaway it is today.
