The legend of St. Tropez begins with a dog, a rooster and a martyr and leads to movie stars, world-famous artists and prominent writers. Located on the sparkling French Riviera, St. Tropez has been in the spotlight, for better or worse, for more than half a century.
Celebrities flock to this idyllic town for its beaches and a dose of Mediterranean sunshine. A picturesque oasis, St. Tropez has served as inspiration for a who's who of notable writers, from Françoise Sagan to Colette; as well as famous artists Paul Signac and Henri Matisse; and even filmmakers. But St. Tropez would not be the same without the belle du jour Brigitte Bardot, her movies and lovers and many other famous couples including Annabel and Bernard Buffet and Bianca and Mick Jagger.
St. Tropez Soleil guides readers through its legendary past and ever-changing present. With annual highlights such as Les Bravades and Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez, as well as exclusive events such as a Chanel fashion show at the quintessentially Tropezian Sénéquier café and the White Party at Nikki Beach, started by Naomi Campbell. But despite all the changes, the spirit of St. Tropez remains the same and this volume is an ode to the unique joie de vivre that keeps everyone coming back.
