Fashion editor Oriane hits the Côte d’Azur with a suitcase packed full of essentials: From a Lisa Marie Fernandez suit to Valentino slides and Dior sunglasses
Oh the South of France…how I love you…your myriad colors, eclectic scenery, balmy summer weather, and mouth-watering cuisine. You are the ideal destination for a quick getaway that combines two of my dearest obsessions passions – fine food and sunshine!
Alongside a selection of sunglasses and swimsuits – it’s always better to have too many choices than not enough! – I packed my suitcase with a selection of light dresses, basket bags, and a lot of other colorful and summery looks.
My dream beach day outfits consist of a pair of Dior sunglasses – bleu, blanc, et rouge, evidemment – and two of my favorite swimsuits: One by the iconic Lisa Marie Fernandez to keep that tan nice and even, and a second by Marysia that’s best suited for relaxing in style and enjoying a light lunch by the pool. On my feet? Slides, of course – and to be specific, these beauties by Valentino. Throw in a Kafka novel and a glass of rosé and I am officially in heaven!
For my daily vegetable shop au marché, I would opt for a bit more modesty to avoid shocking the locals – and yes, even if Leandra Medine has predicted that no pants are the new pants. My outfit of choice? A matching top and long skirt by Kalita with Ball Pagès espadrilles, Rebecca de Ravenel earrings, and my current favorite bag, a bamboo creation by Glorinha Paranagua that – DAMN – is already sold out…
And, for the evening? A Saloni dress, Tabitha Simmons sandals, a straw bag, a nice and very red lipstick, and I’m ready to go!
Côte d’Azur…Je t’aime!
