Through the current hot and humid summer weather in Hong Kong, it’s essential to pick one’s wardrobe wisely to fully enjoy any time spent outdoors. Patagonia has just introduced a series of items under the theme “Summer Joy” that’s perfect for this time of year.
Sustainability has always played a vital part in Patagonia’s ethos since day one, so it comes as no surprise that all of the new summer items are at least partly made of renewable or organic fabrics. Take the Back Step shirt as an example. The soft and airy shirt is made with a breathable 55% hemp/45% organic cotton blend. It comes in various prints, ranging from dazzling floral to subtle patterns to match different styles, while the coconut shell buttons add an extra touch of tropicana. Another summer weather staple is the organic cotton seersucker pullover shirt. The fabric is great for cool-wearing comfort as it stays loose and away from the skin, and the three-button design is smart enough for slightly more formal occasions.
There are recommended items for other family members too. Both the Fleetwith belted jumpsuit and skort for women are made of recycled polyester and spandex, topped with a durable water-repellent finish, and feature a zippered pocket for securing valuables. The Sunrise trail pants for boys and the sun bucket hat for babies are equipped with 40 UPF and 50+ UPF sun protection respectively and are both treated with a durable water repellent finish, making them the ideal children’s headwear for both sunny and rainy days.
