Aqua La Vie en Rose, along with Bikini Village, unveiled their latest swimwear collections – a sight that caused waves of excitement among attendees. This inaugural event, supported by mmode, celebrated not just the launch of new trends, but also the opening of the expansive new head office of La Vie en Rose, a space that’s as grand and visionary as the collections it housed.
La Vie en Rose‘s CEO, François Roberge, couldn’t hide his pride. He praised the team’s audacity and creativity, both evident in their creation of these remarkable collections. From bright hues to daring cuts, every piece in the Aqua la Vie en Rose and Bikini Village collections embraced boldness, capturing the spirit of the summer season in over 225 unique designs.

This is summer encapsulated, a wardrobe that speaks of carefree beach days and warm summer nights.
