Are you living in a part of this world where during the past couple of weeks the sun has stopped shining as bright, the air has gotten chillier and you can only reminisce the feel of the warm sand between your toes on those hot summer days that seem so far away by now? Have we got good news for you! Luckily we live on a planet where the sun shines bright 365 days, 12 months a year. You just have to be in the right place at the right time. And where is that? Well, we have a few ideas…
OCTOBER: Fès, Morocco
Once inside the medina’s walls you will have no choice but to become one with the colourful crowd, and let the exotic smells and tastes, and the wonderlands of covered bazaars of crafty finds mesmerize you for hours. Adjust to the pace, listen to the walls telling the town’s long history of dynasties come and gone, seek refuge from the hot sun in the shadow of a minaret and hope to get lost. Next time you look at your watch, it will be time to enjoy a sunset cocktail and a refreshing dip with panoramic views of the old city from the rooftop pool of Sahrai in your MITOS Mystique one-piece.
NOVEMBER: Belle Mare, Mauritius Island
Sea safaris and scuba diving are on the menu-du-jour every day at the secluded Belle Mare area famous for its underwater beauty and warm waters. The area is like a ghetto of first-class hotels, that will offer you everything your heart may desire. And so they should, since outside their walls all you can find is pure nature. Why don’t you put on your MITOS Secret bikini, take another sip of your coconut juice and rejoice in your very private paradise?
DECEMBER: Sydney, Australia
Make plans asap and you could be celebrating Christmas on the beach this year. Temperatures down-under go sky high around this time of year, so apart from your Santa beanie, make sure you also pack your MITOS bikinis. Plus, you could stay a bit longer and be among the first to welcome the New Year gazing at the firework extravaganza the Sydneians put together every year above their famous Opera. Magical night, followed by days spent on the California-like beaches that surround this cosmopolitan city.
JANUARY: Reethi Rah, Maldives
Do it like the jet set and spend the first days of the New Year in the world’s most exclusive part. It might look devine but the truth is this place is 100% man-made. The owner Sol Kerzner dreamed of a luxury paradise on earth and made it come to life one palm tree at a time. White sand and turquoise waters are the trademark here as is its famous clientele. Don’t be surprised if you bump into Chiara Ferragni wearing her -and yours- MITOS Stars bikini, as she does.
FEBRUARY: Búzios, Brasil
This is the month when samba schools and the carnival queen rule the country. Treat that hangover your wild days on the streets of Rio brought upon you, and hit the road towards the north. In a mere two hours you shall be reaching Búzios. The once quiet fishermen’s village counts itself these days as the glitterati’s favourite destination. And Geribá beach is their playground. Bright swimwear, like our Sife bikini, is the de rigueur dress code.
MARCH: Cape town, South Africa
The heart of the african continent beats stronger at its southern end. An overwhelming mosaic of diverse scenery, people, cultures and moods will leave you breathless. Under the imposing Table Mountain, life lingers between African traditions and the modern face of the city, its urban skyline seamlessly melting into the surrounding sublime nature. Here days feel as carefree as strolls on the vast wineries making some of the world’s best wines, or as invigorating as a dip in the cool waters of the Atlantic after a day’s hike, up and down the hills.
APRIL: Bali, Indonesia
Right in time for Easter, here comes the perfect opportunity to get in touch with your spiritual side. Because you might be surfing, sailing like Gala Gonzalez in our Nature bikini, or jungle trekking by day, but massages and meditation are the only way to end your blessed days on this island. Before you have some of that delicious local delicacies that is.
MAY: Tel Aviv, Israel
Nowhere on this planet will you find a place that is more vibrant, alive, fun loving, has this insatiable zest for life and the most beautiful boys and girls you have ever seen per square meter. Join in the fun by night. You will have all of next day to recover, while people-watching the cool sexy crowd on the beach, bloody Mary in hand, MITOS bikini on.
JUNE: Saint Tropez, France
Summer never fails in the Mediterranean. Having just enjoyed the gifts of spring, Saint Tropez is bursting with smells, colours and the bliss of warm -not yet hot- atmosphere. The only thing to take you out of your nirvana would be the super-yachts and occasional extravagant visitors on their rendez-vous at the scenic port, while you shop for MITOS swimwear at the elegant boutique By Marie, and the locals clueless of the funfair play petanque on the town’s squares.
JULY: Patmos, Greece
The island of the Apocalypse is indeed a revelation. Its cosmopolitan yet relaxed feel is no longer a secret of the aristocratic French and Italian families that have long discovered this little piece of Mediterranean heaven and made their summer homes here. A new crowd has made its way in and turned this place into Greece’s new hot destination; bringing in new life while respecting the island’s rhythm and under-the-radar style. Naomi Campbell is obviously a fan, visiting every summer and making sure she buys her MITOS bikinis from Esthir boutique.
AUGUST: Bodrum, Turkey
It all started with the sons and daughters of the othoman elite flocking here for long weekends away from bustling Istanbul. Soon everyone seemed to snob the sand in favour of the decks and comfy pillows of luxury hotels like the über cool Maçakizi, with views of the most idyllic gulf and the most impressive boats you would ever find along the turkish coast. Put on your MITOS Nature in gold if you want to match the setting’s earthy tones.
SEPTEMBER: Tulum, Mexico
Need a break from the French Riviera? The Riviera Maya cannot disppoint.Tulum is the new authentic mexican hotspot that boasts rich culture, untapered-with nature, food that not even the mariachi singers will be able to distract you from, tiki cocktails to see the sexy nights off and plenty of spiritual energy to go around.This place hits the right balance between bohemian and cosmopolitan, luxury and eco-friendly, active and laid-back. Yoga on your SUP, anyone? Just make sure you are wearing a piece from our Mexico-inspired Manifesto collection, out soon.
