Berluti Beach Essentials Unleash Sunny Fun

A capsule collection for the summer sand comes from the firm famous for its footwear and leather.

If you ever thought that playing ball at the beach just wasn’t stylish enough then Berluti has you covered. Their Spring/Summer 2016 ‘beach essentials’ capsule collection includes a bat and ball set, amongst other forms of footwear and sunny fashions, due in stores this May. This can be seen as a part of the brand’s attempts at diversification that have been taking root in the last few years, with a line of leather goods in 2005, followed by a ready-to-wear clothing line in 2011, and bespoke tailoring at certain stores.


Of course, the question would be why anyone would want to risk playing with a ball crafted out of natural rubber and leather (approx. $475) out in the open where the wayward swing, with one of the Venetian-leather grip adorned paddles, can send it flying straight off into the far horizon. Still, it’s a nice little accessory to keep around, coming in two colors – Rosso or Blu. They were made specially in collaboration with luxury beach goods firm – Beach Access.


The footwear provided, in this capsule’s case, is the espadrille. These are hand-made and come with rubber soles encased in rope, and an upper finished in natural unlined kangaroo leather. They retail for approximately $554, but you can also get the version with tasteful script-print canvas for approximately $440. Bathing suits come in three colors, are tough, and retail for approximately $362. A beach bag features in cotton and linen with a grained leather trim at approximately $1,074.

I have to admit, these look too fancy for beaches with children that run about treading on toes but if you happen to be able to get a little cove of your own to share with your friends, this could make for a trendy seaside experience.
