We are no painter, no artist at all really, so bear with us while we try to paint this picture. Clear blue waters. Olive trees. Colorful flowers. Wooden shutters. The sound of cicadas. Freshly cut fruit. Homemade lemon juice. Pastel yellow houses. Sunflower fields. Plane trees. Sapphire creeks. Warm nights. Champagne. Pink sunsets. A turquoise dream. A dream.
“She was made of pastel yellow houses and blue wooden shutters.”
This picture… this picture shows everything and nothing. There’s so much more to the South of France, to France, than beautiful beaches and glitzy lifestyles – although those are worth mentioning, too. It’s the place to discover a wide cross-section of culture, all under the gaze of the Mediterranean sun. It’s glamour and bling, but it’s also tradition and culture; it’s yachts in St. Tropez but it’s also families that have lived there for centuries. South of France is its people, the kind of people who know how to dress and have a firm sense of style. South of France is love of art and good food. South of France is love – it’s love of love. South of France is the kind of place where you elope with the love of your life; just you, your families and your closest friends. South of France is the kind of place you go to live out the magic. South of France is the kind of place where Lillian West is born and raised.
The Lillian West Spring/Summer 2022 collection draws inspiration from the free-spirited French artisans.
