This week we’re saying ‘salut’ to chic French fashion as we jet set to the illustrious district of the rich and famous: The French Riviera. Anyone who is anyone has been snapped in this south coast paradise, from the Beckhams to Beyonce, Kate Moss to Kim K. And naturally, with any famed vacation destination follows the fashion styles and trends that give it that, well, ‘je ne sais quoi’.
French Riviera fashion is a sophisticated blend of nautical flair and Parisian chic. It’s about effortless elegance but characterised by a playful and relaxed ‘off duty’ style. We’re talking classic tailoring, sleek cuts, feminine silhouettes and block colour prints.
It’s not always easy to follow in the fashion footsteps of French Rivera old-timers, such as RiRi and Cara Delevingne, so we’ve pulled together our favourite French Riviera inspired pieces for our ‘Anchors Away’ collection. Our capsule wardrobe of Riviera apparel will transport you to the decadent coast of Côte d'Azur in no time.
For an easy nod to French Riviera style, add a simple linen shirt to your wardrobe, like Made 4-Manifattura Italiana’s Offagna shirt. Pair with your favourite white tailored trousers, like Moka London’s Stella Cullottes, and a pair of chic wedges for an easy and comfortable, south coast style. We love the Lennon Courtney Wrap Skirt paired with the Vielma Organza Top for a look that oozes sophisticated glamour. Or if soaking up the sun on your private yacht is more your scene, try Gyunel’s Scorpio Swimsuit and accessorise with a straw sunhat, a pair of Heidi London sunglasses and a martini.
Shaken, not stirred.
