The Best Men’s Beachwear Fashion for Summer

21st May 2019 // By Emma Reynolds

It’s time to gear up for summer with this season’s hottest men’s beachwear fashion and accessories to take you from the beach to the pool, or simply enjoy the sun outdoors. From a Berluti beach towel to an Hermès bag, read on for the best accessories and seasonal ready-to-wear pieces to take with you to the beach.

Dunhill Aquarium Swim Shorts, $325

The Dunhill Aquarium collection was inspired by 1940s-era lighters from Dunhill’s archive. Fun prints in bright colors evoke a playfulness not otherwise seen in Dunhill’s sophisticated collections, which make all of these pieces perfect for summer beach days. On most pieces within the capsule collection, you’ll see hand-painted prints of hummingbirds and tropical fish that most definitely make a statement. Other pieces in the collection include lounge shirts, reversible bomber jackets, drawstring backpacks, belt bags and slip-on sneakers. dunhill-aquarium.com 

Frescobol Carioca Trancoso Beach Bat Set, $260

A handmade set of beach bats and balls is exactly what you need on your next beachside vacation to Hamptons or Cape Cod. These handmade paddles (crafted in Brazil) are coating with resin over wood off cuts and feature neoprene grips (available in multiple colors). The bats come with a handy drawstring bag that make them easy to transport from car to beach and back. Infusing colorful Rio de Janeiro flair, the bats are best paired with one of the brand’s printed swimsuits. frescobolcarioca.com

Gentle Fendi No 2 Black Sunglasses, $430

Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster and Italian fashion house Fendi recently announced their first-ever sunglasses collaboration, Gentle Fendi. There are two unisex styles in the collection, and we love these oversized aviator-style shades with a metal frame available in three different shades: black with yellow acetate top bar; gold copper with a khaki acetate top bar; and silver mirrored lenses with an orange acetate top bar. If you prefera more scene-stealing shape, opt for the Gentle Fendi No 1 Dark Havana frames, a cat eye silhouette with bold logos along the corner of each lense in three different colors. gentlemonster.com

Orlebar Brown 007 Thunderball Canvas Espadrilles, $225

After the success of the brand’s Bond swim shorts last summer, men’s swim and ready-to-wear brand Orlebar Brown released an exclusive capsule collection inspired by iconic looks from seven James Bond films, including outfits worn by Sean Connery, Roger Moore and George Lazenby as they play out the Secret Service 007 agent. The collection features polos, jackets, espadrilles, robes and swimwear. The collection is available on the brand’s website, as well as MrPorter.com, and more pieces will drop in June of this year. orlebarbrown.com

Hermès Étrivière Shoulder Bag, $2,675

Made from Dynamo Tech knit and hunter cowhide, this men’s Hermès shoulder bag is perfect for toting to and from summer activities. Not only is this bag extremely wearable for everyday, it’s made with sport performance materials that allow it to have a natural elasticity and durability. The graphic motif in black, white and gray is timeless and chic.   hermes.com 

Berluti Large Cotton Beach Towel, $590

As part of it’s Berluti Beach summer capsule collection, the Parisian brand launched this large 100-percent cotton towel with velvet finishing on one side and terry towel on the other for an ultra-comfortable pool day towel. The can’t-miss Berluti Paris in pink is over the top in the best way possible, and before this beach series launched (it also includes paddle racquets and balls, pool inner tube rings, games and leather beach bags with neon trim) it’s hard to imagine how a Berluti Beach collection never existed. berluti.com
