Manila Socialites Flock To Saint Tropez, Er, Balesin Divine Lee, Tim Yap, Rajo Laurel all flew in for the ab-fab Charriol launch.

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.
