For over 38 years, Marissa Collections owes its success to staying true to the original goal…commitment to helping clients develop their individual style through personalized service and extraordinary selection.
In 1975 Marissa and Burt Hartington became partners in life and in business. Marissa is the creative force behind this legendary store and Burt anchors the business end of the operation. As a continuation of the legacy, their son Jay helms the marketing, jewelry and menswear end of the business.
Marissa Collections began in 1975 with a store front boutique of hand selected items including clothing, jewelry, accessories and shoes which Marissa personally styled for each individual. The instant success among the small community on the Gulf of Mexico has continued over the years, emerging into a 10,000 square foot location in the Third Street South shopping district of Old Naples.
Together they have sustained the formula of providing the highest level of individual service and styling and have trained their staff over the years to follow that lead. Marissa Collections is constantly updating and reinventing itself, most recently in the expansion into Fine Jewelry and Menswear. Currently, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Brunello Cucinelli have in-store boutiques at Marissa Collections. At Marissa Collections it is not unusual to find a $50 T-shirt under a sharply tailored suit. Unique styling, exemplary service and style in a beautifully designed store with Marissa’s artistic force makes this women’s specialty shop one of a kind.
Consistently receiving accolades from national fashion publications, clients from all over the world and designers alike, Harper’s Bazaar “Style Leaders”, Vogue’s “Top 25 Warm Weather Shopping Destinations”, Town and Country’s “Highly Curated Guide to Jewelry”, Women’s Wear Daily and Elle.com proclaim Marissa Collections one of the “top specialty stores in the country”.
