Saint Tropez. Shopping

In Bags, Cities, Fashion, Shops on 25/05/2011 at 07:37

Saint Tropez is of course a shopping paradise and after an afternoon on the pool we went to town and went for shopping. I wanted to go first to “les galleries Tropeziennes” one of the oldest shops in St. Tropez with a choice of objects, shoes, bags, small furniture, glassware and the traditional striped transat fabrics……..

I liked very much the brown linen bag and had a closer look, but when I saw it was made by libeco, a very famous Belgian company from the neighbourhood of Bruges I thought to go to the outlet in Meulebeke and have a look aver there.

Secondly we went to RE run by our Italian friend Rosa. Since 14 years she sells very beautiful small Italian brands and since a couple of years she also sells the collection of piazzasempione. A very chic Milanese brand with superbly cut garments with that one of a kind Italian touch.

We went to BoutiqueMy on the rue Francois Sibilli and were welcomed by Elisabeth, the shop manager who posed in front of my camera with her Le Corbusier glasses and a Ricky bag by Ralph Lauren. In the boutique she sells the collection by the Belgian Mimi Ulens de Schooten. The collection, called MUS is casual and made from the most beautiful cashmeres and wools you could ever find. Tres chic and comfy.

Funny things at BOX.

mad about the colours at Faconnable


The new Home style of the TOD'S boutique.


The funny Manoush shop. Very colourful, Indian, Moroccan inspired clothing.


Tres chic fur shop of Yves Salomon. Yes some people live in very cold countries.N'est ce pas, and they are holidaying in St. Tropez.


The garden at the Vuitton shop.The champagne is ready in the fridge.


Blanc Bleu boutique, casual wear and a large selection of Vintage.

This is only a small selection that catched my eye. For the avid shopper there is much, much more. From the cheap and funny to the most expensive. Hours of fun shopping. And don’t forget to stop at  brasserie Senequier for a pastis at the end of the afternoon or even better when the sun sets down on the port. Pure magic.
