A lifelong traveler, in 1970 he made the transatlantic journey to San Francisco and came back with his bags and trunks filled with authentic clothes that found a second life at the flea market in Saint-Ouen. That same year, he arrived on the Saint-Tropez peninsula and was so dazzled by its light and sea spray that he made it his home port. Dreaming of the fictional sailor Corto Maltese, he created Blanc Bleu in 1979, a brand immersed in the maritime universe: timeless and durable clothing in the colors of foam white and sea blue, whose flagship products would be cable-knit sweaters, pea coats, and nautical rain jackets. He becomes a sailor crossing the ocean to find his muse. In 1980, he opened his first cabana-boutique in a boathouse in Saint-Tropez. Over the course of his travels, 55 more appeared in holiday spots and landing points around the world, places where every traveler could find them: Saint-Barthélémy, Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, Cannes, Marbella, Forte dei Marmi, Sylt, East Hampton… In 1989, he discovered the sailboat Karenita 1929, which he refitted and gave a second life to. With its emblems of the anchor and the keel, the boat is still the ambassador of the Blanc Bleu brand across the world's oceans and seas. Since 2010, at the Maison Atelier Galerie in Saint-Tropez, Patrick's imagination has seduced travelers from all over the world who come to find original pieces that are truly functional.
