Summer in Portsea - Melbourne

Photography by Christian Kimber

December 9th 2022

We’re ready for a summer sojourn at the Portsea Hotel, where the terrace overlooks the sparkling peninsula, and the sun peeks out across the horizon.

Portsea is Melbourne’s summer sweetheart for good reason, and not only for its magnificent beaches and natural beauty. Portsea offers a homely, village feel that is a charming retreat for families, a contrast from the bustle of the inner city. Melbournians populate the town during the festive season, returning to their coastal haven to celebrate or to simply unwind.

Embracing the relaxed tempo of Portsea’s coastal lifestyle, our latest collection is designed to embody casual elegance across all occasions. Our pieces are comprised of lightweight, tonal fabrications, ideal for heatwaves and chillier days alike, especially on the peninsula, where layering is essential.

Crisp linen and cotton shirting is our pick for sandy beach strolls, and hot-footing it from the jetty to the bar for a negroni in the afternoon, while Italian tailored trousers accompany our evening move to the restaurant to enjoy wood-fired pizza. Portsea’s climate keeps us on our toes, so we’re always prepared with lightweight knits and windproof vests that prove elegant through drizzle and seaspray.

Our tailoring is suited to weekend getaways as it is to destination weddings and dinner parties. Pieces cut in relaxed silhouettes in soft shades of plum, sable and olive, accentuated by cinnamon and cream effortlessly combine into palettes that are reminiscent of the coast.

Though summer seems to be teasing us this year, we’re embracing the erratic with our versatile layers, ready for rain, hail, and hopefully, shine. Regardless of the conditions, Portsea always greets us with a warm welcome, one that promises a summer well-spent with those near and dear.
