TENDER IS THE CITY OF NICE
Between asphalt and cobblestone, an almost deserted city and it is Nice that plays the retro card. A road trip that begins with a trip back in time, as the architecture of this mythical city pays tribute to the prolific era of the Roaring Twenties. Geometric shapes, clean surfaces, mastered lines and curves, and floral mosaic patterns blend with the details of the women's collection at every corner.
Let's go together for an interview with the tender Nice, to meet the city clothes of the Dolce Riviera.
FLOWER MARKET COURS SALEYA
As if in the midst of colorful displays with a thousand scents, one strolls around carrying bright bouquets of flowers, the new prints of summer. Mimosas, geraniums, dahlias, hibiscus or birds of paradise, the flowers of the French Riviera attract the eyes under the striped hangings.
Our steps guide us then for a stop at the terrace of a café, in the bend of a narrow and colored street of the Old Nice. We savor the warmth of the sun's rays that come to caress the face. Fresh lemonade sipped with a straw. A pause. One melts in the decoration with our air terracotta dress, a silk square in the hair way Grace Kelly. The breeze comes to touch the bottom of the dress on our crossed legs. We take the time to savor this suspended moment, icon of the summer.
Let's continue the visit quietly, getting lost in the streets. With our heads up, we admire the elegant buildings of the Belle Époque. Romantic Nice, retro Nice. We wear high-waisted shorts and a white lace top with the feeling that time has stopped. Or why not a blouse with puffed sleeves that breathes the beautiful days. Suddenly, the atmosphere warms up with the colors of the Place Masséna which appears in the distance.
PROMENADE DES ANGLAIS
To finish, let's end the afternoon by strolling along the Promenade de Anglais until sunset. A stop that makes you want to read or reread Gatsby the Magnificent, sitting on a blue chair of the "Prom". We are surprised by the bewitching colors of the sky when the sun meets the horizon. To contemplate or wear with the Fig Tie & Dye, the flagship print of the season. On a skirt, a dress, overalls, or even on the little wool that we take with us when we think of the air that cools in the evening.
