La Redoute Launches a Brigitte Bardot Inspired Collection for Summer 2016

We have seen many a time a cosmetics or a fashion brand draw inspiration from the eternal fashion icons we keep on admiring, creating something exceptional and always winning, a collection that perfectly merges present with the past, the modern with the vintage. Such ventures have always proved to be successful, so no wonder e-tailer website La Redoute has decided to revive that inspiring Brigitte Bardot sprit in a limited-edition collection designed for summer. Drenched in the ‘70s style reminiscent of the French actress, model and singer, the La Redoute Brigitte Bardot collection is all about lovely gingham patterns, pastel colors and feminine silhouettes, which you can get your hands on at LaRedoute.com.

La Redoute Brigitte Bardot Summer 2016 Collection

Bardot has had a great impact on shaping certain fashion trends and styles since early Sixties, popularizing skimpy bikinis in her films, thereafter sporting them on the beach during the Cannes Film Festival. The Bardot neckline exposing both the shoulders and having a wide open back is another contribution to the industry, while we still now try hard to emulate her always-perfect mane, a little bit teased and tousled with a certain effortless allure. She managed to stand out with her sweet and feminine style that contained the right air of sensuality to drive every man crazy.

In pursuit of copycatting the legendary actress and turning into the modern Bardot, make sure to check out the French fashion retailer’s Bardot collection featuring lightweight peasant dresses, button-up below-the-knee-length gingham skirts, crisp white blouses with bell sleeves, tailored short shorts and shirts with Brigitte Bardot imprinted on them. Mind you, you are going to fall in love with that wide-strapped A-line frock available in pastel pink and black gingham patterns, which is to become a timeless classic in your vintage wardrobe. There is even a white triangle bikini top included in the collection, which you can pair with your favorite shorts to hit the beach.

The styling of the looks is the next aspect that makes us fall in love with the collection, especially when it comes to the look made up of the gingham skirt and the sleeveless t-shirt tucked into it to create the perfect juxtaposition between casually chic and ladylike attire options, the modern pop culture and the timeless classic. Add a pair of espadrilles to the look and your perfect summer outfit is ready to make you the trendsetter in town.

A pair of round-lensed sunglasses can be lovely finishing touches to that white peasant dress, while teaming the shorts with the bell-sleeve top, both coming in white, can lead to the go-to summer outfit you’ll be able to easily take from day to night. Our favorite must-haves? Definitely the Bardot tees, which are real vintage gems you can easily use in your day-to-day summer looks.

The entire La Redoute Brigitte Bardot collection oozes out effortless vibes, inspiring us to let being carried away by the relaxation of a summer vacation, beach and rambling strolls in the city!
