Sail across the waves and breath in the sea air with a Seaside Top!
Is there a better place for relaxation, for reflection than the seaside? The sea and the coast, synonyms of vitality, create their own atmosphere. You quicky taste a drop of saltwater on your lips, feel the crumble of sand under your soles, hear the gulls cry, make out a foghorn, and see the waves breaking on the rocks. A necklace of stones or pebbles collected on the beach, an anchor resting against a wooden wall that looks like the hull of a boat, a buoy, and old glass floats in a fishing net from an antique shop awaken invigorating memories within you. Sky, navy or turquoise blues are all around you. A parasol reminds you of lazy days, espadrilles of mussel fishing, a little round window of a boat, carefully installed in an urban interior, makes you relive a choppy sea-crossing.
The ruthless sea and it’s incisively charming setting, have inspired painters, poets and writers such as Virginia Woolf and Guy de Maupassant, whose Pierre et Jean opens with the Roland family and their friend Madame Rosémilly fishing off the coast of Normandy. Monsieur Roland explains that “as soon as I feel the water beneath me, I think of nothing but the fish.”
