Matthew Williamson designed a suite ‘No. 67’, for Belmond La Residencia Hotel in Deia, Mallorca.

“I fell in love with Deià from the moment I first visited. It’s one of the places where I feel most creative and it was just such a natural and wonderful starting point for the whole hotel suite concept.”
