Cut into the cliffs of the French Riviera Cap d’Antibes, the Villa Picolette boasted lush manicured gardens, sweeping ocean views, and a quaint private beach nestled among the Mediterranean’s rocky shores. Owner of the Villa, American author F. Scott Fitzgerald lived and worked in the beautiful estate from 1922-24. Whether hosting Hemingway for drinks or drawing inspiration for Tender Is The Night, Fitzgerald made Picolette famous with magical parties and a timeless art deco exterior.
With its faded linen, short sleeves and button down collar, the Picolette draws from an easier time in the classic and comfortable French Riviera lifestyle of the 1920’s. This lightweight, breathable material in faded navy stands the test of warmer weather in style, allowing you to focus on being the author of your own life’s story.

Ultimate linen is known to be one of the oldest textiles in the world and comes from the soft, flexible and lustrous flax fiber. Stronger than cotton, linen is perfect for warmer weather due to its breathability and comfort. High quality linen will expand with wear and return to its original shape with each wash.
