Frescobol Carioca x Mr & Mrs Smith: the new limited-edition capsule collection
We've been unabashed admirers of Frescobol Carioca, a brand inspired by the golden age of Brazilian beachlife, for some time. So we're proud as rum punch to have made it to second base (so to speak), with our new limited-edition FrescobolxSmith capsule collection: two hand-crafted wooden bats and a ball (used to play Frescobol – the locally loved game of the brand’s name), a pair of men's swimming trunks (inspired by Smith's signature colours, Rio’s thrumming nightlife and the city's sidewalk mosaics) and a luxury linen beach towel. So go on, do as the Brazilians do, and update your beach look in time for summer...

About Frescobol Carioca
Launched in 2009, Frescobol Carioca’s luxury lifestyle collections are now available in over 250 of the world’s most exclusive boutiques, with three dedicated shops across London’s premier shopping districts (Marylebone, Notting Hill and Soho). Their original graphic prints are inspired by the architecture and landscapes of Rio de Janeiro, in particular the aesthetic legacies of Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx. Each hardwood frescobol bat is hand-carved by artisans in Rio with sustainably-sourced offcuts from the furniture industry.
