In the hisotry of fashion, nobody has transformed a place like Brigitte Bardot did to St. Tropez, making it from an unknown small fishing village in Côte d'Azur of southern France to one of the most fashionable resort in the world.
It was there she spent her summers while a child in her family's vacation home; it was there she met her future first husband Roger Vadim; it was there he has made her a star and a sensation; it was there she has been nominated B.B.; it was there she bought her first house La Madrague in 1958, thus making St. Tropez her home. Here in St. Tropez, Brigitte Bardot left her husband Roger Vadim, fell in and out of love with other men, living as a free woman. One of the most symbols of her freedom was the capri pants which she wore everywhere in St. Tropez, in a time when it was unusual and almost unacceptable to wear pants.
