Courant Sauvage: Luxury Beach Umbrellas for Perfect Summer Aesthetics

June 26, 2023 in Design & Décor by Charlotte Sinclair

In recent weeks, Sophisticated Spectra has been filling up with photos of branded beaches with bright sun loungers and umbrellas. The correct and photogenic selection of these items can significantly help a hotel (and, as we now understand, a fashion brand) in promoting on social networks.

The price for their umbrellas in fruit sorbet colors with thick fringe (immediately reminiscent of the luxurious resorts in Slim Aarons' photos) reaches up to €1000.
