Carefree Riviera StyleApril 2019
When Chanel introduced wide-legged, white trousers to Cannes in the 1930s, they changed forever the way women dress for cool comfort. Under the azure blue skies, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn made the Riviera look their own – appearing equally at home sipping a cocktail in a glamorous oceanside restaurant or jumping onto a catamaran.
There is no need to jump on a plane to experience Riviera glamour. On our latest photoshoot, the David Nieper team had the pleasure of visiting the Cary Arms and Spa in Babbacombe Bay, jewel of the English Riviera and brimming with coastal charm.
With its relaxed, elegant and laid back feel, this was the perfect location to launch our new Riviera collection for summer designed to be polished and feminine and comfortable in warmer weather.Shop the look
“Think soft, cool fabrics in bright whites and pops of colour – and add a pair of Jackie O style sunglasses of course!”

How to get the Riviera look
It’s a style that has its roots in sun-drenched holidays. A sunny Mediterranean colour palette with bold splashes of red and jewel-like aquas reminiscent of warm turquoise seas. Opt for airy white cotton, linen and coloured silks. Ladylike shorts or flowing palazzos look effortlessly elegant while you’re having fun. And when it comes to dresses, go for slip-on, feminine styles that are cool and easy to wear.Shop the look
