Mention Saint-Tropez and the following come to mind: millionaire yachts by the quay, terrace cafés, solitary splendor along the coastal path... a luxurious jet-set favorite. So for the launch of the Charriol St-Tropez Style collection here in our own beautiful shores, perhaps there’s no other venue more fitting than Balesin Island Club. It has the same posh appeal of the seaside town in France, minus the parade of jostling tourists.
Store Specialists, Inc., exclusive distributor of Charriol, whisked away editors, celebrities and industry personalities for a midweek blue-sky holiday to the breathtaking island destination. The guests were treated to three days of pampering, partying, feasting on global cuisines, ogling Charriol items and more partying. Scroll down to see what went on.
DAY 1: Official welcoming of guests at the Bali Warung Café
Summit Media, represent! Cosmopolitans' Donna Cuna-Pita, the author, Preview's Isha Valles
Sunset Soiree at Bali Nusa Dua. "The gang's all here!" Rajo shares on his Instagram. The guests—all dressed in white—sipped delightful cocktails while watching the beautiful sunset.
Off to dinner! Candles lined the bridge back to the lobby while the full moon provided an enchanting backdrop.
Alexandre Charriol, VP of Philippe Charriol International, just hanging out at Mykonos Village as he welcomes guests to the dinner.
Very satisfied smiles: Guests enjoyed a Meditteranean spread at Mykonos Taverna and bottles after bottles of fine wine. Oh, the lamb was glorious!
Kat Agarrado provided us with some jazz music.
DAY 2: Lunch at the Balesin Sala
Doesn't Thibaud Jaouen, Charriol's Regional Sales Director, look like George Clooney?!
The #MyStTropezStyle photo shoot session with Niccolo Cosme at the Saint Tropez Village where guests were asked to come in resort chic, preferrably in prune (or at least with a touch of the color). Here, Tim Yap shows us the way the pro does it.
Phoemela Baranda, the pro, goes back to her modelling days.
Tricia Gosingtian, this time, shows us how a blogger does it.
Nix Alañon shares the spotlight with his Charriol watch. That lovely suit though...
Mika Lagdameo-Martinez looked stunning. We couldn't believe she's already a mom of two! Her body doesn't show it.
For the culminating dinner and party, the Balesin Spa Garden and Pool Area was transformed into an even more stunning hideaway.
After the scrumptious dinner, models dressed in Charina Sarte showcased the Charriol St-Tropez Style collection.

Ruffa Gutierrez and Jordan Mouyal. She won a Charriol two-tone bangle for having the best Instagram post.
Thibaud Jaouen and Anton Huang award Phoemela Baranda with a Charriol St-Tropez watch for exuding the best St-Tropez style that evening. We want one, too!
