Our favourite lifestyle store in Palma!
Now that spring is here, it’s well and truly time to gird yourself for a busy charter season. Aside from working your way through a whole slew of tasks, preparing yourself for the season ahead is also of paramount importance. Summer charters mean resigning yourself to long days serving, shopping, clearing, pouring and polishing, all while melting under the Mediterranean sun. Here are a few ways to keep cool while working your flip-flops off on a yacht this summer.
Rialto Living stock a gorgeous range of summer hats that cope with all occasions from dock parties to provisioning days. Throwing on a hat won’t only keep you shaded but also adds personality to your crew uniform or, better still, your own clothes while on a much-deserved afternoon off. From bucket hats to wide-brimmed beauties: look neat in the heat with Rialto Living’s seasonal selection of stylish headgear and keep your noggin cool during those heated on-charter moments.
Rialto Living’s über-fashionable ‘Vent de Bohème’ fans are great for creating some refreshing airflow while milling around the aft deck waiting for the guests to go ashore. ‘Vente de Bohème’s gorgeous folding fans boast contemporary geometrical designs, pretty paisley and romantic floral patterns. Store these retro accessories behind the aft deck bar so they’re ready to be whipped out after frenzied activity or snapped shut to convey subtle anger at having to refold those swim towels, yet again.
Spend a nanosecond on a superyacht’s aft deck and you’ll know why a pair of shades are an essential part of a stewardess’ get-up. Whether you need to replace your old ones or simply want to add another pair to your growing collection, you’ll find sensational eyewear at lifestyle emporium Rialto Living. The store’s owners have teamed up with Parisian eyewear brand, Izipizi, to create limited-edition sunnies which protect your eyes from UV damage and ensure a look to match your cool-as-a-cucumber attitude.
Palma’s Rialto Living, conveniently located on Calle Sant Feliu 3, is just a stone’s throw away from STP and sells a wide selection of eye-catching super yacht must-haves. Have a snoop around and see for yourself. And if you make a purchase, don’t forget to flash your STP (or other) entry card so you can relax in their leafy, oasis-like café and sip on a complimentary ‘cafe con leche’ before you head back to the boat.
Rialto Living is now open between 11am and 7pm Monday – Saturday.
