The literal translation of reine soleil is “queen of the sun” and le soin means “care”. We all deserve to look at ourselves in the mirror and feel noble. I spent a lot of my early twenties distraught over the condition of my skin. The ‘soleil’ for me represents no longer wallowing in the darkness of insecurity and self-loathing. My life changed when I started to incorporate an earnest sense of self-care into my daily routine. So, voila! That’s how I came up with Reine Soleil Le Soin in a nutshell. Plus, everything sounds better in french.
If RSLS was to have a muse, it would be Romy Schneider in La Piscine. Schneider looks simply radiant in every scene. I have actually been editing my wardrobe with this film at the forefront of my mind. I replace items I sell on Poshmark with more neutral, classic pieces. Schneider also sports my ideal vacation, or really anytime, look in La Piscine too. I love when I am a bit sun-kissed but slick my hair back and sport a heavier eye with a lip that isn’t too bold. Scroll to see Romy in all of her timeless glory.
