This week we've immersed into the renaissance of an icon to gain an insight into its vibrant character and unique lifestyle - today we experience Monaco exclusively through the lens of VERY MCM! Join us as our latest collection escorts on a voyage to the paradise at the French Riviera!
Over the week we've spent some time with Hana Jirickova and Robertas Aukstuolis, the two stunning top models featured in our Spring / Summer '13 campaign, and took a look behind the scenes while dreaming about Monaco thanks to loads of beautiful photos captured during the shoot.
In Berlin we're always of course scared of never-ending Winters, so we're setting our minds free and going on a little journey with VERY MCM, straight to Monaco! A country called paradise by those who celebrate fun-in-the-sun lifestyles, Monaco is a spot with gorgeous waters and beaches, glamorous places and beautiful people. Of course we don't have to mention that Monaco with its unique character is the perfect match for our VERY MCM.
If you want to go there too, dream away like us & feel free to take a look at our "Monaco-Through-The-Lens-Of-MCM-Guide." Enjoy!
Highlights of GLAMOUR:
The Hercules Port
Hercules Port is a natural bay at the foot of the ancestral rock of the princes of Monaco. It's one of the few, if not the only deep-water ports of the French Riviera. It was used as a trading port by the Greeks and Romans but had the disadvantage of being poorly sheltered from the easterly winds. This prompted the erection of two piers in the early twentieth century which went some way to providing better protection. This historic locale embraces a retro-chic glam that elegantly embraces sophistication with character
