Summer may be almost over, but we’re taking a wistful look back at some particularly stylish vacations.

“After a whirlwind couple of days in Florence for the Pitti Filati yarn exhibition, I spent the weekend in Lacoste, France in the Provencal countryside doing a watercolor class at the Savannah College of Art & Design campus there. It was so beautiful—the colors, lavender-scented air, and relaxed lives people live there. I loved being back in the ‘classroom’ doing artwork and giving my mind a little break from the crazy fashion calendar!”—Chris Benz
