With its orange colour and quality threads, the towel is as warm and inviting as the Mediterranean coast. Take it to the beach or use it for decorative purposes—you can do no wrong.
Salt & Stone Lip Balm
Don’t settle for convenience store lip balm (which may or may not even work) when you can get this high-quality variant instead. Available exclusively through MR PORTER, it comes to us from California-based Salt & Stone. It’s SPF30, made with local beeswax, and enhanced with hydrating oils and protective zinc oxide. Your lips will thank you.
Gucci Round-Frame Acetate Sunglasses
These round-frame sunglasses from Gucci are even more stylish and luxurious than you’d expect. Each pair is made from black acetate and equipped with a contrasting marbled brow with matching arms. The lenses pay subtle tribute to classic vintage eyewear by way of their pale-rose tint. You’ll feel richer just by looking at them.
Mr P. Mid-Length Swim Shorts
Everything gets the luxury treatment at MR PORTER, even swim shorts. Enter these sleek ones from the site’s own in-house label. Cut to a mid-length, they’re built to last and consistently comfortable. Thanks to embroidered eyelets, they’ll never inflate as you leave the water. Use the adjustable drawstring to find your ideal fit and take to the nearest beach.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Sun Drops SPF50
For a daily dose of SPF50 protection, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s ‘Sun Drops‘ have you covered. Chock full of healthy ingredients, the light serum wards off the sun and promotes cell regeneration in the process. Mix it with your everyday cream or apply it alone after cleansing in the morning. Average sunblock looks downright inferior by comparison.

Outerknown Baseball Cap

Outerknown Printed Organic Cotton-Jersey T-Shirt
The 1961 Bruce Brown film “Surfing Hollow Days” inspired Outerknown’s ‘Gone Surfin” capsule and this quality tee (as well as the aforementioned cap). It’s crafted from organic cotton and brilliantly soft as a result. Flip it over to discover an eye-catching vintage print, modelled after the movie’s own promotional poster.

A masterpiece of material, this French-made backpack employs the same waxed cotton-ripstop that’s used for sails and parachutes.

Sonic Editions Framed 1976 Walter Iooss Surf-BYTE Print
Want to spruce up your decor and get inspired in the process? Then pick up this framed print from photographer Walter Iooss. Taken in 1976, it captures the setting sun and majestic shores of Kauai. Against this epic backdrop, a lone surfer trots along the sandy beach, board tucked under his arm. The photo is printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper and presented within a solid frame of black wood.
Salt & Stone Sunscreen Lotion SPF50
Salt & Stone cranks up the quality dial on your everyday sunscreen. Colorless, water-resistant, and non-greasy, their SPF50 lotion incorporates moisturising ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid. That’s joined by non-nano Zinc Oxide, which protects the skin from sun damage and also prevents ageing. Apply generously and then re-apply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating.
