Welcome to the favorite beach of our L*SPACE President-Creative Director, Monica Wise: Juan-les-Pins!
Located to the South of Monte Carlo’s gambling and Nice’s glitterati, and to the North of Cannes’ resort culture, Juan-les-Pins is a French beach town legendary for its spotless white sand, laid-back vibe, and vibrant night life.
Painted by Monet and Picasso, Juan-les-Pins also counted among its early visitors Coco Chanel, who was refused entrance to a casino because she was dressed casually in the new craze – “beach pajamas.” We have Mlle Chanel to thank for introducing the fashion of beachwear and making sunbathing socially acceptable – particularly in JLP, where, these days, chic bikinis and cover-ups are de rigueur.
