The Cannes Film Festival is a happy place. Make sure you join in the joy with a wardrobe fit for the occasion. Casual by day, nearly formal by night, Cannes is bohemian enough to accept just about any style sense, as long as it’s in good taste. Outlining a few guidelines, from edgy to epic, here’s what to take with you.
In a simple two-piece, the focus is on you, not the suit. Melissa Odabash uses the less-is-more philosophy for a streamlined two-piece bikini that hides virtually nothing, and in doing so, is truly something. Valentino, on the other hand, has some great camo beach shorts for men that play with style for fun. Several color options make the look yours.
You’ll want to take an occasional peek at someone famous without giving away your stare. Keep your glances under wraps, and perhaps even encourage a few acknowledging returns, behind Vera Wang’s Freya frames for her, and Lafont’s Lazare subtle, square-jaw stripes for him.
A casual nod to the feminine profile with an Italian accent, Emilio Pucci prints up a gorgeous 2015 resort season. Stroll the decks of your private luxury yacht or the quaint streets of Cannes in pretty bordered blues. Equally as stylish and certainly as casual, horizontal striped dobby shorts with a lightweight, dark print shirt are perfect beach wear. Button up and the look is ready for a daytime walk around town or lunch on board the yacht.
Cannes is a little more casual than some of the spots along the French Riviera, but style still rules, especially in the evening. Brioni’s subtle print jacket, impeccably paired with crisp white shirt and dark trousers, makes a handsome look whether out for dinner or living it up on the yacht. A gorgeous little black dress can go just about anywhere it wants, so pack this Elie Saab 2015 spring collection frock to be ready for anything, dressy or un, under Canne’s starry skies.
It’s complicated. It’s also beautiful, and something of a marvel in how thin Cartier’s new Rotonde de Cartier Grande Complication Skeleton truly is. They’ve packed 578 components into a 5.94 mm movement, and a case that is a mere 12.6 mm. Astounding. And very packable. Or, wearable.
Black. Diamonds. Feathers. What else could one possibly need? Dior’s VIII Grand Bal 38mm “Dior Inverse” 11 ½” calibre movement puts film critics at bay, earning rave reviews right there on your wrist.
Louis Vuitton continues the stylish brand with rolling hard cases, suitable for any travel adventure but particularly for your luxury yacht charter experience in Cannes. Need we really embellish this epic any further? Nothing but the signature will do for her. You know it’s the right choice. For him, the Pégase 55 in smooth, black Tiaga leather, packs everything in its place. Pockets, rollers, and simply superb function make this an indispensable travel companion.
Louis Vuitton makes incredible travel pieces in every size, and for every function, but this business case for him, and the Bandoulière 45 for her, are both just the thing to keep essentials close at hand.
