SU13 Preview Week: Beach Collection

Our 2013 Beach Collection is a sun-drenched escape into a tropical paradise – where you can forget all your worries, relax under a colorful umbrella, and let the stress melt away!

The focal fabrication of this collection is a magnificent photo-real woven straw print, based on vintage vacation bags, complete with real embroidered raffia flowers. Accompanying island-inspired prints include Mai Tai and Belize, along with the quintessential Cabana Stripe. Plus seven new styles are introduced exclusively for this Beach Collection.

The Tropical Tote in Floral Straw and Tropical Handbag in Aloha Straw are truly the “it” bags for Summer 2013. The tall silhouette of the Tropical Tote is ideal for carrying rolled beach towels, magazines, and water bottles, while the sleek shape of the Tropical Handbag is suited for days spent souvenir shopping. Both styles include a removable crossbody strap for easy versatility and a snap closure front pocket thoughtfully sized to store your sunglasses. Of course we didn’t forget about accessories, our Tropical Pouch Set keeps all your little seaside necessities neatly organized. These pouches are perfect for stashing sunscreen and snacks, or protecting your tech from the sand and sun.

Multifunctional components are key for styling any vacation wardrobe, and our new Convertible Backpack (available in two sizes) is just that –  it can be worn as a backpack, carried as tote, or slung over your shoulder as a carefree crossbody via a removable, adjustable strap. Once, twice, three times a summer essential!

Our new Reversible Beach Tote (available in two sizes) is the ultimate quick-change artist! Mai Tai Beach and Belize Beach each switch from a playful print to a solid fluorescent in a flash, while Cabana Beach converts from a stripe to a straw print in an instant. These terrific totes also have an interior clip that lets you modify the wide, open-top design to a more streamlined look as shown below.

Our 2013 Beach Collection will be available in LeSportsac Boutiques and at LeSportsac.com starting in May.
