Mr & Mrs Smith, the travel club for hotel lovers, has teamed up with luxury lifestyle brand Frescobol Carioca, bringing guys and girls around the world, an all-inclusive beach bundle to add a splash of style to your next getaway.
Hailing from the sandy shores of Copacabana, Frescobol Carioca is inspired by the golden age of Brazilian beach life, from Rio’s thrumming nightlife to its swirling sidewalk mosaics. Frescobol Carioca’s offerings are the embodiment of Rio’s laid-back spirit, proving that you can live like a Carioca, wherever you are.
The resort-ready Mr & Mrs Smith collection includes two pairs of classic chevron-printed swim trunks and a linen beach towel. Inspired by the easy-going Cariocas (locals of Rio de Janeiro) and the city they call home, the swim shorts and beach towel feature interpretations of the Copacabana and Ipanema calçadão designs, with Smith’s trademark red and navy blue for a classic coastal look for beaches in Brazil and beyond. These trunks are perfect for poolside lounging or a day spent at the beach.
The limited-edition Mr & Mrs Smith collection is completed with a pair of carefully crafted wooden bats. Along with a small ball, these are the only things you need to play frescobol, transporting you straight to the sandy 4-kilometre stretch of Copacabana beach. Unlike other bat-and-ball games, frescobol players are partners rather than opponents who work together to keep the ball in the air for as long as possible. Each unique bat is handcrafted with several layers of sustainably sourced wood offcuts and then finished with a sea and sand-resistant resin. The best thing about this game is that it can be played anywhere, so they’d make a stylish addition to beaches round the globe.
The limited-edition capsule collection is released on the 1st of May to mark the beginning of Mr & Mrs Smith’s 15th anniversary celebrations, alongside a short film shot on location in Rio by acclaimed photographer and art director Alex Bramall. Look out for all of those!
