An endless summer state of mind is a hell of a way to live. When you truly tap into the poolside perspective, that’s when the scorching season of ice-cold Palomas, road trips, polaroid pics, ukulele jams, ceviche, sandy toes, and red white and blue popsicles truly gets locked to your soul. In fact, that’s probably why it’s so hard to say goodbye to sweet ol’ summer, our mind becomes soaked with it like the ocean water in our hair. But the tilt of the earth has not reached that point yet, so we don’t have to fret as we’re just getting it started. Toss on your Taylor Stitch Tulum button up, see a clear sky blue with Akila sunglasses, kick push your Southpaw Board to the beach bar, and pop open an oyster right out of the bay with your shucking knife—all of these are a few of the items in our summer catalog here at CYTIES. Take in what some call the season of all seasons, stock up on this exclusive gear, and don’t miss a sunset of summer ’22.
