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. Want to see what Monica would pack for a quick jaunt to Juan-les-Pins? Head over to the Swell Blog to find out xx, L*SPACE
