RED BANK, NJ (May 18, 2023) – LowTides Ocean Products, an eco-conscious beach brand, just launched a new collection of beach chairs inspired by the 70th anniversary of the global fashion and lifestyle brand Laura Ashley.
Featuring a mix of iconic Laura Ashley prints on LowTides' high-quality, eco-friendly and amenity-driven beach chairs, the limited-release beach chairs for adults and children are now available on www.lowtidesop.com and www.lauraashleyusa.com, as well as in select retail stores nationwide. This is the second release in the Laura Ashley X LowTides Collection, which builds off their successful introductory launch last summer and the third season for LowTides.
The new collection continues the palette of nautical blues and serene greens in order to mix and match with the first collection. The adult Dune High Backpack Beach Chair is now available in the Sailboats and Palmettos prints, inspired by the Laura Ashley archives and a nod to the picturesque British seaside.
The top-selling Sea Buoy pattern from the previous collection is now available in the adult Sandbar Low Beach Chair, and the popular Sea Turtle pattern seen in the collaboration's kids' beach towel is now on LowTides' bestselling children's Gully Child Beach Chair.
LowTides Co-Founder, Elizabeth Ackmann, says, "We feel honored to be a part of such a celebratory year for a truly timeless and influential fashion empire. Their coastal designs are an inspiration to the classic and nautical style that LowTides presents each year in our collections. The new patterns are a natural flow into the existing line."
"We are thrilled to partner with LowTides on a second collection. The new adult and kids' beach chairs are a great addition to the collaboration's stylish and sustainable beach essentials," adds Penne Cairoli, President of Laura Ashley, Inc. (Americas). "Consumer demand for more environmentally friendly products has grown significantly over the last few years, and LowTides' ocean-saving mission and commitment to quality is something we know resonates with the Laura Ashley customer as well.”
The capsule features 12 designs, including coordinating beach towels, a beach blanket, a beach tote, and beach chairs, with prices ranging from $39.95-$169.99.
