S/S '22

In which we tell you the story of this Summer’s best beach accessories brand (and you don’t even have to use them on the beach).

The People

The company was founded in 2017 by Australian friends Ollie Edwards and Lachlan Leckie and is now based in sunny Southern California. Ollie, a former buyer for a large online store (Quiksilver since you ask), looks after all matters business. Lachlan, a product designer, with actual skills in handmaking umbrellas, learnt from Australia’s last living umbrella maker (now, there’s a niche role) looks after all matters pleasure. Frankly we’re not sure the division of labour sounds exactly fair. The intention of the company is to make beautifully designed, immaculated constructed, durable and covetable outdoor products.

The Inspiration

There is most definitely a Slim Aarons Palm Springs feeling about this collection. Let’s picture the scene. It’s the late 1960s. The sun is shining. The pool is ringed with palm trees. The San Bernadino mountains are glinting in the background (Good Lord, someone needs a holiday). It’s a world of candy stripes and pastel plains and string fringeing. And not a small amount of aspiration. This is the dream Summer we all intend to enjoy.

The Product

Ollie Edwards describes the range:

‘although back-boned by our umbrellas, we’re lucky, B&PCo has such a great identity that translates to so many categories.’


This Summer sees us adding to last year’s Beach Umbrella, Tommy Chair and Cabana with the Holiday Beach Umbrella and the Hammock. And we’re introducing new prints to the old favourites. If you are keen to accessorise your outdoor seating and your sunshade, or want to look chic and coordinated on the beach, get involved in the brand new Premium Cooler or the Cooler Tote. What better way to lug the beers?

Friends of the Product

Whilst Business and Pleasure is all about creating their very own self contained universe of co-ords, please feel free to mix and match with other outdoor brands. We’re loving a Yeti bottle or tumbler in seafoam or white for some matching pastel vibes. Tarta Gelatina cushions are flying the flag for the Palm Springs colour palette. And La Rochere glassware is sturdy enough to stand up to some serious outdoor use.
