Unabashedly playful in your jewelry, sunglasses, sandals and whimsical bag, breeze into this seaside town of gentle waves and sunny beaches at the French-Italian border, known as la perle de la France. Hyper-feminine among the seaside set in above-the-knee print dresses; colors shaded in citrusy yellows, shimmery pinks, fresh lime greens and azure blues of the Mediterranean. A waft of freshness and youth, a sweet lesson in day-to-night pure elegance and sophistication with a decidedly 1960s flair. Delightfully tempered by an Italian look and worn in impeccable French style. Strolling the wide promenade is no time for chichi couture!
