Of course, St. Tropez is known as the playground for the rich and famous, and for the actress/singer Brigitte Bardot in the 1950/60’s, who now has a line of clothing.
In the recent music collaboration between French DJ, Jean Roch, and American rapper, Snoop Dogg, Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, makes a cameo appearance in the video, asking “You were never told that Saint Tropez is paradise?”
We may not have actually been told, but I think we all believe it IS a little piece of paradise!
Actually, it’s St. Tropez that this famous French icon, as an actress and singer, “put on the map” back in the 50’s & 60’s! She is highly recognizable throughout the world, and apparently, is still marketable; she is also passionately involved in animal rights.
As I was walking to lunch in Nice, a photo her caught my eye, and I then noticed the shop was featuring her new line of clothing. No surprise, really — what would the French Riviera be without “BB” (as she is known)!
