If you are a fan of Saint Tropez, you will have no doubt heard of Les Voiles de St Tropez, one of the most famous sailing regattas of the nautical calendar held here every September.
This year’s event will take place from 26th September until 4th October – and is a wonderful occasion to visit Saint Tropez and rent one of our St Tropez House villas.
But what many of you might not realize is that Les Voiles de St Tropez is also a brand of clothing for men and women which is said to reflect the ‘skipper spirit’ and focuses on the values of waters sports: lifestyle, tradition and authenticity.
The mainstay of the men’s collection are beautifully tailored polo shirts with colourful Bermuda shorts with a number of styles of deck shoes, a prerequisite for any sailor in the South of France.
The ladies collection is predominantly a more feminine versi8on of the men’s, with a practical range of polo dresses thrown in – perfect for a day at the beach while on holiday in Saint Tropez.
Les Voiles de St Tropez is not the first fashion range to be named after the quintessential French port in the South of France, home to our portfolio of luxury villas to rent and buy.
The Tropezienne is a brand of hugely successful sandals which are created by a family who live in Saint Tropez. The Rondinis started to manufacture the simple leather footwear in 1927 from their house in the village, and now the sandals are sold all over the world.
There is also a very famous brand called Saint Tropez itself; a collection for young women which is inspired by the colours and ambiance of Saint Tropez yet based in Denmark. The brand has more than 30 outlets in Denmark and is also available online here.
