The lilo of your childhood just got an upgrade. Forget the ubiquitous unicorns and flamingo shapes that just end up in landfill at the end of the summer, Oliver James lilos are pool floats that wouldn’t look out of place in a Slim Aarons photo. It would seem the style set would agree; with Olivia Culpo, Pia Baroncini and Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart all littering their social feeds with variations of the chic lounger. Uber interior designer, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, turned to the Pico Pirata for his Palm Springs home and illustrated the design benefits without so much as getting wet.
Made from woven outdoor performance fabrics and soft-to-touch TPU inflatable film, they’re durable and stylish, but best of all they can be customised allowing you to choose your fabrics, piping and handles. So whether you’re a restless sunbather prone to slipping into the water for a dip at any second or the relaxed tanner who floats over calming ripples all day, the Oliver James lilo is undeniably a must-have for summer.
