MONTENEGRO is Roksanda’s Ilincic’s ultimate holiday destination.

“Montenegro has spectacular natural beauty and is full of contrasts,” the designer told CNTRAVELLER.COM. “Sights from Morača Canyon and Kotor Bay to Ada Bojana should not be missed – one of my favourite spots in the world has to be Skadarsko Jezero (Lake Skandar).”

Serbian-born Ilincic has recently unveiled her first ever swimsuit collection,but recommends you pack something for a colder clime too – “a quick helicopter journey will take you from the beach to the ski slopes”.

And where to dine?

“The local markets are filled with delicious produce and bakeries – my favourite are the large, pink tomatoes which can be eaten like a piece of fruit.”

The London-based designer will be heading to the small restaurants on Milocer beach at sundown – “all known for their delicious seafood” – and then onto the party town of Budva, where “an amazing Pizza Kiosk is open all night to help restore fuel after an evening of dancing”.

And Roksanda’s top tip for Montenegro travellers? “Local people are very friendly – take their advice about where to go. They can always recommend the best places to go out and dance all night long on tables, too!”
