indulge in escape with Anne Fontaine’s ss22 new collection of lace blouses and dreamy resort wear

Not another soul in sight as far as the shoreline stretched north to south. Serenity. The only sounds to be heard – crashing waves and the same colony of seagulls that had been scavenging the stretch of beach the last few days.  I could have spent hours alone there, and so we did.
