Slip into holiday mode with these summer accessories from Città

In association with Città.

The imminent reward of the summer hols has us wanting to reach for colour and functional finds you get a kick out of putting to good use while enjoying your favourite pastimes — doing stuff and doing nothing. These pieces by New Zealand design devotees Città exceed the brief in that they’d also make excellent festive gifts for the person who has everything or ‘to me, from me’.
Getting out of here? Fold your capsule wardrobe into a cool, slouchy carry-all like the Marlo overnight bag in Blue-Black heavy cotton canvas with a bright Spirulina zip or Green with a spicy Masala zip. It’s a rookie mistake to forget to put a bag within your bag and pack a tote for day trips, so not this year! Città’s Market Bag (now available in this juicy new Mulberry hue) offers ease when you’re out and about. As well as its textural, hard-wearing linen, it wins us over with its internal pocket for containing your keys and wallet — and stopping sand getting into your lip balm.
Downtime’s nothing without at least one drawn-out morning spent lazing around in a robe, and you can make yours refreshingly Spearmint flavoured with this new hue for Città’s popular waist-tied design made from environmentally and health-safe OEKO-TEX-certified flax linen. When you finally slip into your other holiday uniform of casualwear and togs, let the Tivoli beach towel and Solis picnic blanket be your sidekicks at home, the park, the pool and the beach. In the spirit of summer fun, soft, cotton Tivoli’s multicoloured stripes (which are available in three different combos) channel the kaleidoscopic artwork of the vintage and contemporary posters used to advertise Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens amusement park, one of the oldest in the world. Waffle weave with an oversized plaid pattern, the Solis picnic blanket will show you a good time with its contrasting colours, and the light weight that makes it easy to take everywhere then double as throw for the couch or a bedspread when you’re ready to put your feet up indoors — again.
