Introducing our new season Chaplin Stripe Sun Umbrella! Featured within the Editors picks of this month’s Real Living issue, you’ll see this one popping up all around the coastlines of Oz this summer…get closer to Chaplin Stripe here.
It was nothing but sunny blue skies over the weekend here in Sydney and Basil was out in all his glory. Spotted beachside and loving every minute of sandy toes, icy cold beers and that familiar feeling of salty skin…
Balmy Origami is our salute to summer days and the objects we love to see at the beach. From zinc on your lips to your favourite shades, this brolly will take you back to when you had a spade in your hand and ice cream on your face!

The hinge was designed to make it easy to change the angle of the umbrella. Remember those old hinges from the 70’s with the wing nut that you always used to loose in the sand? Well the Basil hinge is designed to eliminate this and to lock and unlock the hinge, you simple rotate a switch a little more than a quarter turn. It’s easy for everyone to use and has been also been tested on some people that suffer from terrible arthritis.
Serge was the dirty old man of popular music; a French singer/songwriter and provocateur notorious for his voracious appetite for alcohol, cigarettes, and women, his scandalous, taboo-shattering output made him a legend in Europe but only a cult figure in America, where his lone hit “Je T’Aime…Moi Non Plus” stalled on the pop charts — fittingly enough — at number 69.
Slim Aarons is a very famous personality and photographer who lead an amazing life capturing the lives of the rich and famous. Aarons made his career out of what he called “photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” “I knew everyone,” he said in an interview with The (London) Independent in 2002. “They would invite me to one of their parties because they knew I wouldn’t hurt them. I was one of them.”
Today, a few of our favourites to remind you of the summer ahead.
