Playa Grande Beach Club

On Holiday

The Cara Cara family celebrated Friendsgiving at Playa Grande Beach Club, the casually elegant Dominican Republic resort featuring lacy Victorian bungalows and trellised cabanas scattered on a tropical green lawn spilling into the ocean. The resort's co-owner Celerie Kemble, an interior designer whose work serves as a constant inspiration for the brand, decorated the property in an eclectic and colorful clash of tropical prints and bamboo antiques. It all served as a perfect backdrop to take the new resort collection for a run around the island. 

We styled Cara Cara's resort collection with minimal make-up, barefeet and bottomless spicy margs. It was the perfect recharge before a chaotic holiday season and a great way to test our most jet-set collection!

After we shot our Pre-Fall 2024 lookbook, our families joined us at the resort. We have 5 kids between us and they get along swimmingly - literally. We spent the rest of the holiday break laying by the pool, jumping over turquoise waves, and sharing fresh, nourishing fare offset by buckets of icy rosé.
