The Saint Tropez event theme transported guests to the French Riviera which is the coastal town that inspired one of the key collections of the brand: The Saint Tropez Mariner. Indeed the views of the sea and the spectacular sunset added the perfect touch to the already upbeat ambiance. One of the new collections highlighted during the event was the St-TropezTM Mariner. According to the chief executive officer and creative director: “With this new collection, we’ve been able to capture the world of St-TropezTM, a complete offering that balances the
spirit of our hometown – a charming seaport that matches the sparkle of its illustrious guests.”
