Uniqlo's New Linen-Cotton Pants Were Inspired by the French Riviera — but You’re Going to Want to Pack Them No Matter Where You Go
Inès de La Fressange has teamed up with Uniqlo to design a summery collection that channels the easy glamour of the Côte d’Azur.
French designer and Roger Vivier muse Inès de La Fressange is the embodiment of Parisian chic, but the OG It girl is equally as inspired by the timeless glamour of the French Riviera as she is the City of Lights.
For her 11th collaboration with Japanese basics brand Uniqlo, the model drew on her experiences in the coastal region — specifically her birthplace, St. Tropez — to design a Côte d’Azur-inspired collection.

The styles evoke the French Riviera’s carefree and sun kissed spirit, in pieces like linen jackets, flirty dresses, adorable kids' clothes, and cotton-linen pants that have travel staple written all over them.
“When you think of the French Riviera, people like Brigitte Bardot or Jane Birkin come to mind,” said Fressange to Travel + Leisure. “Their aesthetic struck the perfect balance between sophiscation and casualness, which is the mix we were going for with this collection.”
The best part of all? The pieces are super vacation-friendly, and are designed to be mixed and matched and even worn during some of travel’s less glamorous moments.
“I wanted these clothes to look great, even if they’re fresh out of the suitcase and wrinkled.”
