French Palazzo Pant
Summer of 1929.
Days of gossip and sunbathing, green figs and Pernod. Smells of orange and lemon trees. Sobranies being lit everywhere as Italian secretaries seduce their bosses.
She’s a producer from the little film house in Marseille, with the Mam’zelle Nitouche production in town. She’s talking to Maugham, also impeccably dressed, sharing his stories about World War 1.
It’s late evening and her pants are a cool, flowing, wide-leg cut. Very slimming, lots of drape.
Richebé can’t resist from across the villa. He introduces himself, kissing her hand (and makes her a movie star forever).
