AND WHAT TO WEAR WHEN YOU’RE THERE
Not all swimming pools are created equal, here are five of the best.
St Regis Lhasa Gold Energy Pool
The Gold Energy Pool can be found in Lhasa, which translates literally as The Place of The Gods. And there is no place closer to the heavens than this 14-carat-gold-lined pool, filled with therapeutic Himalayan salt water, heated to the perfect temperature, high-up in the mountains of Tibet at the St. Regis Lhasa.
A perfect fit
The saffron crocus is used to produce the vibrant colour of Buddhist monks’ robes, worn as a symbol of piety and humility. It’s also the colour of our saffron Clipper swim shorts.
The Library Hotel Ruby Red Pool
This pool is a break from the norm, a mosaic of orange, ruby and yellow tiles creates the illusion of deep red water contrasting with the pure blue skies of Koh Samui. The ruby-red pool is at The Library Hotel, located on Chaweng Beach, one of the best stretches of pristine white sand on the island.
Stand out in red
The Clipper tailored swim short in red twill is the perfect match for gliding through these spectacular waters.
Giola Lagoon, Thassos
Wild swimming can still be luxurious, and Giola Lagoon in Thassos, Greece is as wild and spectacular as it gets, with waves crashing against the rocks below the crystal-clear waters of this teardrop-shaped natural pool. According to legend, the pool was created by Zeus as a swimming spot for Venus, goddess of love and beauty.
Fit for a Greek God

Don’t break a sweat
Our Cabana seersucker shirt is the ideal option for dealing with the hot humid nights in Hong Kong.
Rooftop Pool, Williamsburg Hotel
Williamsburg is a hub for New York’s contemporary arts community, and the rooftop pool at the chic Williamsburg Hotel is the place to mingle with the neighbourhood’s movers and shakers while enjoying stunning views of New York’s iconic skyline.
