Iconic French brand Saint James has teamed up with Coach to create a Spring/Summer 2013 collection of clothing, accessories, and handbags, all ready to put you in the sailing mood! Even if you think you haven’t heard of Saint James before, chances are you’re already familiar – they’re known for originating the Breton striped crewneck sweater we modern fashionistas all known and love, beyond its original purpose as fisherman’s wear! The result of the collaboration is a preppy-chic, youthful yet classic array of bags and beachwear, perfect for hitting the Hamptons this summer. Prices range from $88 for a beach towel (ouch) to $498 for a leather-detailed beach tote… but the up-side is that the nautical trend shows no signs of stopping, so these summer-festive pieces can likely serve as seasonal go-tos for years to come!
