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...

    The three-piece, resort-ready Mr & Mrs Smith collection includes one pair of classic chevron-printed swim trunks (£145), a linen beach towel (£95), and a pair of wooden bats (£150), all designed using Smith’s trademark red and navy blue to ensure a classic coastal look for beaches in Brazil and beyond.
