Mariana Salvo


It’s the first week of August, which means that we’re closing on the last legs of summer. All those vacation days you’ve racked up need to be utilized while the sun is still blazing and deadlines aren’t so strict. Take it easy. Book a trip to an oceanfront property. You know you need it with the crazy time we all experienced. And to help out with your travel plans, brands far and wide have dropped all the fits and accessories you need to have a banner time OOO.

First up is the toniest trolley by Fendi and Rimowa, which will have you jetting off in style. Need something to wear on the flight? Pangaia has released a comfy selection of sweats that are made of natural, high-tech fibers. Lacoste, too, has a new tech polo that is perfect for traveling long distances, or short ones. Let’s not forget about footwear: Loro Piana is offering some of the lightest sneakers around, and Vans has an artfully distressed trio of styles in collaboration with FDMTL. And once you land at your beachside destination, Ray-Ban has you covered with some truly golden specs, Tekla and Stüssy have a great post-surf bathrobe, and Hiro Clark has the pitch-perfect flip-flops for walking along the shore. Now check them all out below, and start planning your itinerary.

Pangaia is furthering its commitment to being green. The brand— regarded for its natural, high-tech fibers—has developed two new proprietary blends: PLNTFIBER and FRUTFIBER, which are made of responsibly-sourced, organic materials. Both fabrics have been utilized on a collection of unisex tees, sweats, and hoodies. So whether you’re chilling at home, watering your plants, or jetting off on vacation, you can feel extra good about the fit you’re wearing. 

The Water’s Edge Flip-Flop

Hiro Clark x Tidal


Hiro Clark’s Andy Salzer is a master collaborator, joining forces with the likes of David Zwirner, Ana Matronic, and Equinox. For his latest drop, the L.A.-based designer decided to team with flip-flop specialists Tidal, offering up a collection of sandals that capture the laidback essence of La La Land. 

Cabin Size Trolley

Fendi x Rimowa


It doesn’t get any more first-class than Rimowa, a purveyor travel bags and aluminum luggage. And it doesn’t get any more luxe than Fendi, a fashion label that offer the most sumptuous materials. Now, the two labels have joined heads, offering up a cabin-size suitcase that combines what they do best. The trolley is made of brushed aluminum with the Fendi’s FF logo throughout, and features black Cuoio Romano leather handles on the top and sides.  

Hooded Bathrobe

Tekla x Stüssy


Speaking of stellar collabs, Tekla, a leader in top-quality bedding and towels, and Stüssy, one of the OG streetwear gods, have released a collection that is perfect for serene moments, like overlooking an oceanfront view or just lounging at home. This bathrobe, especially, is perfect for both scenarios.  

Phantom Eau de Toilette

Paco Rabanne


There has always been a sense of futurism with Paco Rabanne. The eponymous designer did, after all, make a name for himself during the Space Age by creating fits made of chain mail and silver discs. Taking this credo to heart, the label has released a new cologne—with notes of lavender, lemon, and woody vanilla—in a robot-shaped bottle. What’s more, the box comes with a QR code that unlocks exclusive content. 

OG Slip-On LX

Vans x FDMTL


All three of the styles in Vans’ collaboration with Japanese denim brand FDMTL—the Slip-On, Authentic, and SK8-Hi—have a lot going for them. But nowhere does the heavily distressed, sashiko-stitched, indigo jacquard fabric shine as much as it does on the Slip-On. And let’s face it: That fabric is the star of the show here.

Reticulated 10.5MM Band Ring

John Hardy


Tactility has long been a cornerstone of John Hardy; the Bali-based jeweler creates handmade pieces out of reclaimed metals that feel just as good as they look. For its latest collection, named Reticulated, the brand emphasized texture even more so, using an ancient heating technique that results in a ripple effect on the surface.

Blue Mohair Knit Cardigan



Los Angeles-based brand Brownstone has released its latest collection exclusively at Ssense. Titled “Chairs Missing: The Difference Between Looking & Seeing,” the line is inspired by (post) punk bands Wire and Ceremony, and features a slew of styles that celebrate the genre. In particular, this leopard mohair cardigan, a trademark of Brownstone, is the fiercest pick of the pretty stellar bunch.   

360 LP Colorama Flexy Walk Sneakers

Loro Piana


Taking a deep dive into the world of sneakers is Loro Piana. The Italian label, famed for its wool and cashmere styles, has released the 360 LP Colorama, a sneaker that is so light that it feels as if the wearer is swimming.  To wit: It weighs 360 grams (hence the name), which is roughly .8 pounds. The shoe is made of an extra-fine merino wool upper and a flexible, non-slip technical sole. 

Muscle Shoals Sound Sweatshirt

Billy Reid


Billy Reid loves himself a music festival. In fact, he hosts one of the best around. This season, however, he is lending his efforts to ShoalsFest, which will take place in his home state of Alabama on October 2. But before the festivities commence, the designer has released a sweatshirt that celebrates the occasion. Not only that, but 10 percent of the proceeds of each purchase will benefit the Muscle Shoals Music Foundation, an NGO devoted to preserving the famed Muscle Shoals Sound Studio.

Regular Fit Movement Polo



Polos, nowadays, are a dime a dozen. But leave it to Lacoste to go the distance. The French label has refreshed the iconic style with its latest drop, making it out of a lightweight technical fabric and adding a side pocket. This means that you have a place for your phone when you go on a run. That’s right, running in a polo! 

Limited Solid Gold Aviator Sunglasses



Ray-Ban has given its Aviators the Midas touch—literally. In celebration of the 84th anniversary of the iconic style, the eyewear brand has created 84 pieces that are all made of 18K solid yellow gold. Indeed, everything will appear golden with these luxe specs.

Moto Short

Mr. Saturday’s


Mr. Saturday’s tells narratives with each collection. Past drops were inspired by New York in the early ’80s and Evelyn Waugh’s Vile Bodies. Its latest, titled Good Luck 001, however, will be an ongoing story. Influenced by fast cars and the culture around them, the line of sweats, tees, and sweaters is seasonless, and will periodically be updated throughout the year.  

Summer 2021 Dad Hat

Dad Grass x Free & Easy


Smell that? Brothers in arms, Dad Grass and Free & Easy, have joined forces once again. For their third tour, the brands have released a four-piece capsule collection, which includes a new, special-edition colorway of Free & Easy’s beloved “Don’t Trip” cap. It’s definitely worth taking a whiff.
