The luxury sector and craft trades are devoted to making hard-wearing articles. Materials that keep their promise of quality and know-how now cater for seaside use… UV-protected fabrics, leathers, metal inlays treated to withstand corrosion and salt, water-repellent fabrics.
We zoom in on these materials that stand up to salt and the sun to protect your finest articles even on the beach
Cap d’Arsène – an ode to relaxation
The Parisian luxury house has turned its hand to wearability and luxury with its designer range of articles for seaside use. Egyptian percale cotton beach towels, terry towelling-covered cushions, water-repellent canvas totes and beach clutch bags – its know-how and choice of materials are what make the difference.
Luxury and the outdoors – a match in the making
Come summer, luxury is amazingly well-suited as beach wear with top-of-the-range goods made to last. Everything from outdoor use towels to beach clutch bags with delightful details are finding a new home on the beach. What is more, totes and handbags inspired by the chic bohemian look – bags made of bamboo, plaited rattan and canvas – are making their mark this summer.
