Hello everyone !

Bonjour Tristesse is a novel written in 1954 by the writer Françoise Sagan (1935-2004).

It tells the story of Cécile, a seventeen-year-old girl, and her father, a widower and a man in his forties, but happy, frivolous and seductive as anyone, lover of brief and inconsequential love relationships, they live happy, carefree, dedicated to easy and Pleasant in his beautiful mansion on the French Riviera.

One day, the visit of Anne, an intelligent, cultured and serene woman, comes to disturb that delicious disorder. In the shade of the pine forest that surrounds the house and filters the scorching summer sun, a cruel game is prepared. How to remove the threat that hangs over Cécile's strange but harmonious relationship with her father? From the moment that Anne, who had been friends with her mother, tries to take over the situation, Cécile will fight with her, with the perverse Machiavellianism of a teenager, an unrelenting struggle that, despite herself, will erode her life and lead her slowly to meet sadness.

In 1958 they made the film adaptation of that novel, and as protagonists Jean Seberg (USA, 1938-1979), David Niven (UK, 1910-1983) and Deborah Kerr (UK, 1921-2007).

We really liked that movie because it allows us to admire the environment of the French Riviera, near Saint Tropez, its lifestyle and David Niven's art of clothing.

In this photo we can see how Jean Seberg and David Niven naturally wear a used jean shirt and it is too wide making it a knot, remaining perfectly casual and elegant at the same time.

What caught our attention, and there you will understand the relationship with our Yetiberas, are the summer shirts that David Niven wears.

We can see how the British actor manages with perfect naturalness and "nonchalence" the art of wearing those shirts, loose stockings, the collar turned up quite naturally, the shirt quite open without being vulgar and combined with short shorts.
