I am so glad you enjoyed yesterday’s post with some of my favorite shots from Egypt! There are many more where that came from but as I am back from holiday, you better believe I am looking to plan another trip. And here is an idea I want to float by you, the 36th America’s Cup. Like many international sporting championships this famous sailing competition is not held every year, it will actually be in March 2021, and despite the name, it is going to be held in the stunning Waitemata Harbour in Auckland, New Zealand. Swoon. And the icing on the cake? The 36th America’s Cup is sponsored by Prada (and you know, I love Prada).
What is even more exciting? North Sails, who you may know for their high quality sails for competitive sailing, has teamed up with Prada and created an America’s Cup collection. In my opinion, the best part about this collaboration is you can get Prada branded apparel for a fraction of the regular price! The collection has both pieces for guys and girls and after a through browse of the look book, I think many are the ideal combination of patriotic colors while still being chic and practical. And now while I do some more research about New Zealand, here are the items from the North Sails and Prada collection that I have had my eye on:
Cowes Full Zip Sweatshirt in Red | This is the kind of piece I wish existed during my competitive swimming days, a quick dry slim fit sweatshirt with a soft lining, perfection! Plus I love the bold color, the contrasting pockets, and the fact more than 95% of the materials used to make it are recycled.
Baseball Cap in White and Navy Blue | There is something special about a branded baseball cap to remind you of a fantastic event. I have a white hat from when I went to Wimbledon over the Summer and every time I go to grab it, I am reminded of the great sportsmanship I witnessed. Plus the Prada and North Sails America’s Cup Collection has hats in a few different colors, so many choices!
New York Vest in Grey Violet | This takes the elements of a world class regatta and transforms them into an everyday staple puffer vest. Plus the unique color, grey violet, is certainly one I do not already have in my closet.
These pieces and many others on the site will be great for the America’s Cup next year but I found myself browsing North Sails other collections – especially the swimwear – as it is all made of high quality, breathable materials and the majority are wind- and water resistant, perfect for when I visit my parents in Florida.
