For her, Marysia paints a pretty picture in a scalloped bandeau bikini in timeless black, sure to be a standout among the gorgeous aquatics around the island. For him, tuck in a pair of trunks from Vilebrequin with a little embellishment and great style.

Covering up is important on Martinique. While you’re basking on your private luxury yacht charter, anything goes, of course, but from ship to shore and around town, take cover in casual style with something feminine like Alice McCall’s Tuberose Playsuit. For him, instant island approval comes from Captain’s Landing, a carefully curated set of attire that goes 24/7 on island time. From early morning swim to evening cocktails, CL knows just what to wear.

Deliciously simple island dressing for her comes in the form of a sheath from Giambattista Valli. For him, the pick of Ralph Lauren’s combination of dress and casual from the 2017 resort collection fits the occasion perfectly. Lose the wool and wear a silk tee under the jacket to tone it down one more notch, and on the island? Please, no socks.
