I can see why so many lingerie designers invoke the Riviera when naming their collections (See Wolford, Eres, Princesse Tam Tam, etc. for examples.) Is there anywhere in the world that epitomizes style and sophistication more than this gorgeous stretch of French and Italian land? We were lucky enough to visit 5 beautiful places along the Mediterranean coast on this trip: Nice, Villefranche, Monaco, Finale and Manarola in the Cinque Terre, which was my personal favorite. There is something truly magical about these 5 towns, nestled in the hills along a dramatic seascape. In our one short day there, I floated with remarkable ease in my Eres suit in a deep-water swimming hole, finally made use of my Starwalk app, locating constellations in the ink-black sky, and watched the fairy-like dragonflies dance on the air, blessing everything they touched with a bit of mystery and romance. The next day, as we were leaving, it felt as though we were waking up from a dream. If you're ever in the area, be sure to plan a stopover- you won't regret it!
