A Mediterranean road-trip’s essentials

Because summer is fit for getaways and long weekends, Monaco Marine focuses on pieces to pack in your suitcase for an improvised road-trip. The idea? Choosing multifunction clothing so you can leave carefree (and luggage-free).

 

A minimalist knitted dress

 

Airy, elegant and light… Molli dresses need no introduction. The very inspired Charlotte de Fayet decided to relaunch this centenary brand specialized in knit. From its heritage, she kept the « Molli stitch », which makes her designs recognizable.

Among them, this pristine piece, which can be worn day or night — preferably during a dinner facing the sea.

 

Molli dress, 487, 50 euros.

 

 

 

 

A disco swimsuit

 

From neoprene to James Bond-girl swimsuits, designer Lisa Marie Fernandez managed to establish her glamour style by conceiving a versatile swimwear line, to be worn in the city or at the beach.

If choosing a swimsuit is never an easy task, why not opt for a golden one? Its disco aura will be a a major asset to go from a swimming session to the end of the night, by simply matching it with a skirt or high-waisted pants.

An embroidered pareo

 

Kilometre Paris’ designs all honor a special destination by unveiling their GPS location or delicately hand-embroidered landscape.

These unique pieces can be considered ahead holiday souvenirs, such as this pareo depicting the Côte d’Azur. Among its possible uses during a sea getaway: it can be worn as a headpiece as protection from the sun, as a post-swimming tunic or as a towel to lay on the warm sand.

An elegant beach dress

 

After Molli’s minimalist version, this printed dress will adapt to every unexpected occasion. Crafted from striped cotton, this Lisa Marie Fernandez piece is more than just an after-swim dress: it comes with a belt which allows to enhance the waist, which makes it as fit for the city than it is for the beach.

A woven colored basket

 

This is the summer’s essential bag! Just like Jane Birkin who never left her famous woven basket, whether she was going grocery shopping or attending Parisian soirées, we recommend to choose a design that can be worn everywhere… And it is even better if it highlights Monaco!
