Vamos A La Playa

When we're not Koala stroking, kangaroo watching, or VB/Chardonnay drinking, we're over shopping, over eating and over heating. But there's pretty much just one more activity left after this; super bronzing. And what do we need to help us do this? Exactly... Some super amazing beach gear is the only answer. We've already found our favourite beachwear store in Sydney - Beach Culture at George Street. This shop has a truly excellent selection of anything that is vaguely beach related. Our first recommendation is the label Jets. This company has an extraordinary collection out at the moment. Jets do not do the usual sporty-but-jolly-good type of beach wear, which is why we particularly like their stuff. The items are clean cut and very un-cluttered by unnecessary design features. The patterns on some items are very pucci-inspired, and others very sixties style with stripes or spirals. Another label is SeaFolly, which again has released a fantastic set of beach wear - anything from bikinis, tankinis and swimming costumes, to beach kaftans, baggy beach pants and strappy beach sandals. They also do a really nice maternity collection. The New Zealand producer Moontide, also offer some very nice stuff indeed. The last brand worth mentioning is Tiger Lilly. Tiger Lilly do not seem to have an official web site strangely enough (if there is one, do let us know as the garments we've seen in the shops have been absolutely stunning). Naturally there's Billabong, QuickSilver and Rip Curl, but all of their selection is a little bit too sporty for our taste. And until we can surf standing up through a "tube", we're not going to invest in any of that nonsense.
