The swimwear you and your family should wear to Sunset Cinema this weekend

Make a splash

There’s a little something for you, your significant other and even your mini-me too

Vilebrequin is no stranger when it comes to the luxury beachwear market. Known as the original creator of the modern swim trunk — and within the sartorial circle, the crème de la crème of the waterworld — this is one wet label not to compromise on quality. While it upholds its artisanal value by hand-crafting its swimwear and recently, its debut line of sunglasses, the Frenchie hardly stinge on style either.

Inspired by the freedom of a Mediterranean getaway, Vilebrequin's latest collection, named St Tropez Holidays 1971, is all about lounging by the beach, soaking in the heat and coconut spray in fashion and comfort. Made famous by Parisian bombshell Brigitte Bardot, this coastal town of France has long been a popular destination for the rich and (sometimes) famous. And for this season's high summer drop, Vilebrequin lends a slice of its hometown to us, with a range of bikinis, one-pieces, swim shorts, cover-ups, bags and more. Every piece — even the shrunken ones for your mini twin — adopts a form of illustration of St Tropez' coastal line, palm leaves and tropical prints, perfect for Sunset Cinema happening at Tanjong Beach Club this weekend.

The St Tropez Holidays 1971 collection is in stores.
