A Positano Love Affair
Is it possible to love a place you've never been? Because the love affair we're currently having with Positano feels very real. Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica's casually classy beachfront hotel, is to blame. They've introduced us to Le Sirenuse hotel, the place to stay in Positano, and its famed boutique Emporio Sirenuse. The two hotels have partnered on the Pacific Coast for a week of celebrating all the Amalfi Coast has to offer: including incomparable cuisine by guest chef Matteo Temperini in collaboration with Shutters' chef Sven Mode (of which we got a little taste of the other day), and a pop-up shop from their famed boutique Emporio Sirenuse. The store offers a curated selection of hand-embroidered pillows, iconic Carlo Moretti glass tumblers (which Le Sirenuse uses in its champagne bar), and other selections that bring the Amalfi Coast to your everyday. And thanks to the Emporio's recently launched e-commerce site, you can get your fill of Positano shopping from wherever you may be day-dreaming.
