In a destination prized for elevated style that is influenced by wellness, magnificence, and natural surroundings, it is on location along favorite beaches within the heart of the French Riviera, between Nice and Monaco, where our newest collection of sustainable luxury comes to life. Join us in Côte d'Azur, where the natural beauty of the French Riviera’s serene green spaces and cliffside gardenscapes let us bask in the sunshine of Southern France, making an idyllic backdrop for our newest styles and earth-toned color ways.
Our wanderlust begins on the eastern side of the majestic and forested Cap Ferrat Peninsula. Formerly a fishing village, the beach town of Saint Jean Cap Ferat has kept its classic authenticity over the years by offering a warm and relaxing atmosphere nestled amongst emerald green forests.
It is here we introduce the newest swim to the line, the Riviera, a timeless and elegant style. It features a scoop neckline with a minimal look that also features gold ring detailing and long straps that can be tied in the back, or wrapped to the front. The Riviera bottom is a retro high-cut with cheeky back coverage offering an ultra flattering look.
As we continue to Beaulieu-sur-Mer, a secret hideaway of the Riviera, and one of the tiniest villages of France, we are mesmerized by the curve of the rocky foothills and seafront gardens we’re surrounded by. The magnolia trees, flowering succulents and streets lined with citrus trees leave us utterly inspired by nature’s beauty. The palm shaded beach makes a picturesque backdrop and the feeling of never wanting summer to end is magnetic as we enjoy the serenity.
The beautiful Paloma Beach, with its crystalline waters and stunning views over Beaulieu, is where our additional newest swim gains its inspiration. This patch of paradise is named after Paloma Picasso as this is where the artist would spend time with family and friends. Ever since, Paloma Beach has been about family and celebrating those close so that when one returns, the feeling of nostalgia is immediate and, year after year, the iconic beach remains the same.
Like the beach, the Paloma is a classic and timeless swim that features a gathered and adjustable triangle bikini top with an effortlessly seamless look. The top features long straps for an optional wrap detail around the torso. It offers a sleek overall visual and is adorned with gold ring detailing, featuring loops for strap inserts. The Paloma bottoms are a first of a kind for our line - a classic scoop bottom that also features gold detailing and can be worn mid or high cut, perfectly complementing the Paloma top in simplicity of design.
L'été D'espoir also showcases the return of our signature swims, Loren and Pelagia, which are now offered in decadent new colorways – Café & Terracotta, encouraging mixing and matching of tops & bottoms from this new and previous classic collections.
A trip to the Riviera could not be complete without the newest introduction to our line where we were pleased to introduce Le Paréo, “The Sarong.” Our new sarongs are created from the softest GOTS certified organic voile of cotton. The Pareo is offered in a crisp, natural Ivory as well as in rich Café and Noir - both colors achieved using plant-based dyes, making them an effortless and eco-friendly pairing with any of our swims.
