We are now back in the UK however I thought you would enjoy a post with the latest news from St.Tropez market. Just before we left I made another visit. This time the market had returned to its original home in the Places des Lices (the main square in St.Tropez). It was full of vibrant colours and the usual assortment of fun accessories.
If you want to learn about the early history of the village and why it is called St.Tropez I found an interesting site here. Saint-Tropez was a military stronghold and fishing village until the beginning of the 20th century. It was the first town on its coast to be liberated during World War II. After the war it became an internationally known seaside resort, renowned principally because of the influx of artists of the French New Wave in cinema and the Yé-yé movement in music. It later became a resort for the European and American jet set and tourists.
Back to the present day market in St.Tropez
The hat I am wearing originally came from St.Tropez market. Below are similar ones that you can find online.
A row of neutrals. A chic combination of white and beige
There is certainly a lot of colour around this season in line with the season’s fashion trends. Bright orange, green, red and cobalt blue as well as the softer pastel pinks.
Leopard print is always very popular with the inhabitants of St.tropez. You will often see women of all ages wearing leopard prints, especially favoured are leopard print trousers.
There are always some fantastic stalls selling local cheeses which are quite delicious. The French do like their cheeses.
Some interesting colour combinations. Rust and orange seem to be popular colours this season. Interesting use of accessories.
There are always plenty of bags and hats to choose from.
There are also a variety of stalls selling homeware.
One of my favourite outfits. l like the combination of the bright scarf with the green dress.
Anthropologie has some good accessories, scarves, kaftans, bags etc. with very St.Tropez vibes.
Well till next time. Thank you for joining me on this mini-tour of the St.Tropez market. If you missed my last post on the shops in St.Tropez you can read it here.
