Travel Diary Inspired by Travel: Dezso Visits Vieques

Sara Beltran’s love for nature is more than a hobby, it’s an essential theme for her jewelry line, Dezso. Using thick gold, uncut stones and a natural color palette, Sara sees the earth as both material and muse. Naturally, the CFDA {Fashion Incubator} recipient decided to explore the unparalleled terrain of Puerto Rico’s remote Vieques Island for her W Inspiration Trip. Alongside the ever-stylish eye of The Coveteur, Sara hit the sand and surf for ultimate inspiration.

ADVENTURE

With water as clear as gin and lush land in every direction–the tropical environment of Vieques is the epitome of paradise. From snorkeling in the reef to stumbling upon wild horses running on the shore, Sara experienced the pure adventure of the island’s preserved natural habitat.

EAT

Sara got a taste of the local flavor with some traditional paella, just-caught lobster, and fresh tropical fruits. Indulging in the island favorites, each meal was as vibrant as her surroundings.

EXPLORE

Just a short plane or boat ride from the main land of Puerto Rico, Vieques Island still feels like a secluded oasis. Whether it was surfing the nearly empty beaches or exploring the magical hills by horseback, Sara was ready to find the hidden gems of the island.

CREATE

Being in paradise  didn’t distract Sara from getting down to business. The pristine beach alongside the W Retreat & Spa – Vieques Island became a perfect backdrop for the designers lookbook video. The Dezso accessories looked majestic in every terrain, glowing underwater with the coral or glistening in the sun. It’s no doubt she took away more than just a nice tan.
