Street Style, South of France Edition

The quiet French town of Hyeres doesn't get much recognition here in the States, but in the world of European fashion, it's famous. Every May for the last twenty-six years, creatives in fashion and photography gather at a landmark cubist villa built in the 1920s by Mallet-Stevens for what is officially known as the Hyeres Festival. It's a three-day event that's become an international launching pad for young designers: they present their first collections, and a panel of rotating judges like Karl Lagerfeld, Azzedine Alaia, John Galliano, and Anna Sui decide the festival winner. But unlike the frenzied schedule of say, New York Fashion Week, the festival is also a bit of a relaxed getaway for those just there to check out the scene--lots of lounging and sunning.

Our favorite looks from the weekend? Hair scarves in lieu of sunhats, drapey takes on Sophia Loren-style house dresses, and of course, the iconic Breton stripes given a slight Girl Scout twist.

There was even more ultra-cool festival style in the U.S. at Coachella.
