Resort “Naked Retreats” is a dream in Zhejiang Province. Surrounded by mountains and tea plantations here you can get completely away from the city noise and clear your head. The spacious resort offers plenty of room to relax: Various pools, 2 bars and 2 restaurants with nice terraces with their wonderful view into the green. The food is light, fresh and locally prepared – incredibly tasty, good for body and soul. The entire resort was built with ecological materials from the region. The accomodation are small romantic cottages with outdoor shower or the luxurious villas with jacuzzi on the terrace. The interior design and architecture is simple but tasty. Because of the colours and materials it reminds of the pure and lush green China sometimes mixed with a hint of rough Argentina and sometimes influenced by Africa. This is definitely a place to refocus on yourself, recharge your batteries and just feel good.

“Bruno Pieters ist zurück: Der ehemalige Kreativdirektor von Hugo Boss launcht nach einer überraschenden zweijährigen Pause seine neue Linie “Honest by”. Während seiner Auszeit in Indien hat der Designer seine Prioritäten komplett neu geordnet und will fortan ausschließlich auf Transparenz setzen. Seinem Design-Stil ist er jedoch treu geblieben. Im Interview erzählt er von seinem Sinneswandel, der Suche nach biologischen Textilien, Produktionsstandorten, der Abkehr von saisonalen Kollektionen und der möglichen Veränderung der Modeindustrie.”
