Let's Celebrate! For The Love Of...France

For the Love of…

Whatever it is, do it for that…

For us, it’s the love of the sea, of being in the sun, surfing with our sisters, living a bikini kinda life. For the Love of…Billabong.

We gathered in the southwest of France at The Beach House in Anglet, with our three favorite Aussie athletes by our side, Felicity Palmateer, Josie Prendergast, and Pacha Light to enjoy a night of art, surf vibes and dancing under the stars. We invited some of our local friends, and some from around the world, to join in the week’s festivities.

Our girl Julie Sariñana of @SincerelyJules flew from sunny southern California to enjoy the coastal breeze of Biarritz to spend a few days with us and test her watercolor skills with local artist Filippa Jean Edgehill of @Filippaedghill.

Guests Meryl Denis, Olka Ryzevski, Wendy Swan and Hélène Coyan from @Girlsborntotravel got creative with our resident French florist, @ladybrindlle who guided a French basket and floralizing workshop over freshly squeezed juice from a local truck and passed hors d'oeuvres.

It was the cutest mini DIY workshop and takedown of the exploding French surf ride inspired by our new Surf Capsule Collection…And let’s be real, what girl doesn’t like a French basket filled with flowers?

After the ultimate early evening workshops provided by local French artisans, we eased into a night of music provided by Musique d'Apéritif Records surrounded by floating florals, neon lights and surfboards colored in our new Sea Trip print by artist Luke Taaffe. It was a night of making new friends from far and wide and celebrating with old beachside.

As we watched the sky painted in pink and lavender slowly drift into evening we knew this watercolor evening was one magical French sunset meant to be…

For the Love of…Frenchies and friends from around the world. Thanks for celebrating summer with us. #ForTheLoveOf
