CELEBRITY INTERIOR DESIGNER SASHA BIKOFF DESIGNS AN EXCLUSIVE CAPSULE COLLECTION OF LUXURY POOL FLOATS BY OLIVER JAMES
New York City-based celebrity designer Sasha Bikoff has designed an exclusive capsule collection for Oliver James, creator of the world’s finest upholstered pool floats. Launching on 5th July 2022, the collection consists of five luxury inflatables upholstered in neon-coloured outdoor performance fabrics of the highest quality, with models including Dragonfruit in pink, Kiwi in green, Pineapple in yellow, Tangerine in orange and Blueberry in blue and purple. An elegant yet fun pop of bright colours to elevate an outdoor setting or pool décor, the Sasha Bikoff x Oliver James luxury pool floats will be exclusively available to buy on oliverjameslilos.com, each priced at $950.00 USD with free express shipping worldwide, as well as taxes and duties included.
Known for her flawless execution of bold and colourful maximalist designs influenced by the multicultural flair of her hometown, for the capsule collection Bikoff took inspiration from nature and Ralph Lauren’s RLX collections from the 90’s, imagining sun bleached neon colours with contrast details that would be perfect for the warm season. The core inflatables are made with a soft-to-touch TPU film that ensures security and longevity; they easily inflate and deflate with a USB rechargeable pump, folding into a beautiful and practical tote bag.
Enthusiastic about collaborating with Oliver James, Sasha Bikoff comments: “Oliver James created an innovative product, bridging the gap between luxury lounge chairs and pool floats for the first time. When I completed my home in East Hampton, I noticed that my style evolved into something more mature, more elegant, and I realised that the days of the plastic swans and flamingos floating around were over. Oliver James’ inflatables are beautiful, and they immediately elevated my pool and beach décor. I wanted to use them as a canvas to add a little summer fun since most people have a neutral palette for their pool settings, taking inspiration from nature and from old RLX collections, in an array of bright, neon colours with contrasting details. This capsule collection reflects my personality – cheerful, playful, punchy, fun – and I can’t wait for my clientele and Oliver James’ loyal customers to enjoy it. I’m sure they will adore it!”
The Oliver James collection already includes nine single and two double lilos in striking colourways. Redefining the poolside experience and making for a more sustainable alternative to cheap, plastic inflatables, every stylish Oliver James lilo is created to be enjoyed both in and out of the water, thanks to their practicality and high calibre production methods that ensure comfort, durability, and longevity. In addition, to reflect their aspirational price point, all lilos are manufactured with the finest fabrics sourced in Spain and the US, resulting in aesthetically pleasing products of the highest quality possible.
