Frescobol Carioca shorts
Named for the addictive bat-and-ball game invented on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro in the 1940s, luxury swimwear brand Frescobol Carioca may have its roots in Brazil but was dreamed up by founders Harry Brantly and Max Leese in the French Riviera. The pair launched their own line of bats after a quiet game of frescobol accidentally attracted a beach-wide crowd before expanding the business to include the Rio-inspired swimshorts for which they are now known. Taking their cue from the columns of the Modernist Palácio do Planalto, where the president of Brazil works, and Palácio da Alvorada, where he lives, this tailored pair is a yachting essential.
