Heading for the coast in Italy this summer? Go in style to the beach with these (vaguely) rock’n’roll-related accessories!
1. Cut across Shorty
Never mind being on the beach – how about having the beach on you? These eye-catching Orlebar Brown swim shorts for men give you the opportunity to do just that, emblazoned as they are with an aerial photograph of Rosignano Marittimo beach in Tuscany, photographed by Alex MacLean. Made of quick-dry polyamide and featuring a mesh lining, side pockets and a button/zip fastening, they’re also tailored for a flattering fit inspired by vintage swimsuits, meaning you’ll look every bit as chic out of the sea as you are comfortable in it.
2. Sunglasses after dark
You can always rely on Prada to come up with something that’ll turn heads. In this case, it’s the Cinema sunglasses. At once futuristic and retro, they take as their inspiration those plastic shades you get when you go to see the latest 3D blockbuster, but are souped up with Prada’s trademark glamour and cool. Features include a lustrous and durable, acetate front frame, a trendy double bridge and adjustable nose pads. But more importantly, Beyoncé wears them!
3. Domino, roll me over romeo
Too tired to play Frisbee or beach volleyball? Then how about a more genteel pastime… Inspired by the serene coastal environs of Puglia, these deluxe dominos are cut from naturally shed water-buffalo horn, rather than the usual plastic, and feature hand-drilled number pips on the underside. A rustic drawstring pouch allows for easy portability – though something tells us that once you settle into your sun spot, you won’t want to leave in a hurry. $60 (£40), www.artemare.co
