ST-TROPEZ MAY be a French vil­lage but it is far from tra­di­tional. The nar­row streets are packed with stores. The tri­an­gle be­tween

Place des Lices, Rue Gambetta and Rue Al­lard is fash­ion heaven. The coolest spot in St-Tropez has to be White 1921 (White1921.

com), where you can sip on some bub­bles, lis­ten to great mu­sic and peo­ple-watch. While sun­ning your­self on Pam­pelonne Beach is the per­fect way to spend a day, get­ting lost down any of the cob­bled streets is the best way to catch a glimpse of old St-Tropez. The

Dior des Lices is a must-visit, as the ho­tel houses the Dior bou­tique and is in­spired by the world of haute cou­ture – it is beau­ti­ful. One of my favourite mo­ments in the city was watch­ing the old guys play­ing boules un­der­neath the beau­ti­ful plane trees on the square – it was like a scene out of a movie. What makes St-Tropez the per­fect fash­ion des­ti­na­tion? It has ev­ery bou­tique you can imag­ine. Peo­ple dress up, embrace fash­ion and aren’t afraid to ex­press their in­di­vid­u­al­ity through their style.

How has the city in­spired you? To dress how I want, not to be afraid to get a lit­tle ec­cen­tric and to al­ways wear it with con­fi­dence.

Your travel musts? An over­sized pair of sun­nies as well as Kiehl’s Mid­night Re­cov­ery Oil and El­iz­a­beth Ar­den Eight Hour Cream to keep look­ing fresh even after a long trip. But most im­por­tantly, make sure to bring along a sense of hu­mour!
