Just Add Water: The Barneys Team Picks Essentials for Summer

Sure, the pool opened on Memorial Day but officially, summer starts today. In celebration, the Barneys team is sharing their must-haves for the season.

Route du Thé is the perfect cologne for a New York summer. It’s light enough to avoid asphyxiating your nearest and dearest and strong enough to mask those occasional fetid gusts on the hot streets of NYC.

My weekend go-tos will be cut-offs from Current/Elliott, Salvatore Piccolo shirts and Barneys New York CO-OP Sammy suede booties. And for the office: anything from Céline, skinny cropped pants from The Row and blouses from Chloé.

My white Levi’s Made & Crafted jeans and Orlebar Brown swim trunks will be on heavy rotation.

My must-haves? Oribe après beach spray, MiH white jeans, a white Salvatore Piccolo classic shirt, Balenciaga Arena thongs, La Mer SPF 18 Fluid Tint and YSL nail polish in Corail Colisee, the most amazing coral/red color you have ever seen!

I am planning to buy a set of Nouvel Studio Osaka bowls in all three colors for my home. They have just the right amount of color combined with elegant black—perfect for summer.

Bantu bikini to throw on, a pair of N.D.C. espadrilles to slip into, a pop of color to brush on (I love Deborah Lippman) and not to be forgotten, a beautiful beach to lie on.

Amidst all my electronic methods of communication, I still love to keep a notebook to quickly jot down thoughts that will become future memories. Summer is when I take a little time to travel and explore and I can’t leave home without a Smythson notebook. It fits in any pocket and unlike my smart phone, it won’t fail me if I accidentally drop it in water!
