CDLP’s swim shorts borrow a few details from traditional running shorts for a style that’s both sporty and sophisticated. The lustrous fabric is 100% econyl (a nylon crafted from ocean and landfill waste) that’s fast-drying and eye-catching. Featuring a low-rise drawstring and elastic waistband, these trunks incorporate a mesh lining and side pockets. Available in size XS to XXL, there are five elegant colors to choose from, including our pick: rust.
Available with black or red straps, L*Space’s Cameron Cooler Bag appears from the outside like a woven straw tote, but the interior is insulated, complete with a removable interior liner. The bag features a wide top opening and a flat bottom, both useful when stacking and carting drinks and snacks that could spill or leak. Additionally, the liner can be easily wiped clean.
From UK-based MAIYO, a brand dedicated to luxurious swimwear made with more environmentally responsible materials and practices, the Blossom bikini has a decidedly sporty silhouette, but with a couple of delicate details. Available in white, green, black or deep red lurex (the latter two come with a rhinestone belt), there’s the option to be understated or a little flashy. Each swimsuit is crafted by hand with 100% cotton yarn that provides a slightly raw texture. Fully lined, this bikini offers full coverage and high-waist bottoms, and a top that has removable padding.

It comes with a carry bag and weighs nine pounds total.
Screen-printed by hand, these 100% linen pajama sets by Australia’s Holiday The Label certainly don’t need to be limited to the bedroom.

Consisting of high-waisted, drawstring shorts and a boxy, button-down shirt, the set has been made to be comfortable and worn as loosely as one likes. In size XS to XXXL, they are designed in Sydney, screen-printed in Melbourne, and crafted in Bali by a small family-run textile studio with a firm focus on less waste (offcuts are used to make smaller accessories like face masks and scrunchies). Price is in AUD.

Wacky Wacko (aka artist/musician Seth Bogart and artist/designer Peggy Noland) has just released a new range of towels, covered in their signature kitsch-meets-punk designs. Our favorite of the four is the GRRRLS towel, which pays homage to NYC girl group The Chiffons, Swiss punk band Kleenex, English experimental rock outfit The Raincoats, and more. Measuring 34 by 66 inches, the towel is made from 96% cotton and is covered in artwork by Bogart.
Designed by Pierre Charpin for Danish design brand HAY, this PC Portable Lamp features a USB-rechargeable battery and an energy-efficient LED bulb within that produces a warm white glow. The light can be dimmed or brightened thanks to touch control. Made from ABS plastic that’s finished with a scratch- and water-resistant coating, the light comes in six colorways—some of which boast several hues. Standing just under nine inches tall, these lights can be used anywhere, but should be kept indoors when not in use.

The new Polaroid Go instant film camera is smaller than any of the photo brand’s previous iterations, and it uses an all-new type of film. This starter kit includes the pocket-sized camera and a double-pack of color film. The camera’s self-timer and side mirror assist make self portraits a breeze. Weighing just .53 lbs (242 grams), it’s light enough to wear around your neck for long periods and comes with a strap to do so. The Polaroid Go is rechargeable via USB and a full charge should last 15 film packs—or 120 snaps.

Pairing bright red with pale pink, deep plumb with emerald green and more, the combinations simultaneously contrast and complement. The silhouettes are classic Suicoke and feature an adjustable Velcro strap and a foam-rubber sole. Stylish but utilitarian, these sandals are ideal for all kinds of summer adventures.
From Comme des Garçons SHIRT (one of the brand’s diffusion labels) and featuring an abstract print by legendary NYC graffiti artist Futura, just how “floral” this tote bag really is remains in the eye of the beholder, but there’s no denying it’s colorful and playful. The polyurethane outer isn’t quite waterproof, but should protect from drizzle or well-placed spills. With a cotton inner lining, the bag features two top handles and a shoulder strap.
