WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

The Coral Beach Club

A trip to Bermuda is not complete without a gorgeous lunch at the creme de la creme of beach clubs, the Coral Beach Club.

Having changed very little since its 1948 incarnation, the Coral Beach is a wonderfully well preserved piece of a bygone era – a membership, let alone an invite, is indeed a major achievement!

Dining on the terrace of the Coral Beach club offers breathtaking views of the pinkish coral sand and turquoise sea – the perfect setting to enjoy the delectable menu of local Bermuda specialties like fish soup with rum and cherry pepper vinegar or a “dark and stormy,” (a mischievous concoction of Barritts ginger beer and Gosling’s black rum with a generous wedge of lime!).

I’m pictured here at the terrace of Coral Beach, with an excellent example of an archetypal Bermuda roof and chimney, and of course the ever-present and always hypnotic sea beyond. The wall color reminds me of Farrow and Ball’s “smoked trout” and is indicative of the blend of island and colonial sensibility that typifies the unique Bermuda style.

Admiring the beauty of this magnificent place I’m wearing a Gucci white cotton voile safari shirt, Club Monaco purple and white cotton seersucker shorts, Ralph Lauren purple alligator belt with sterling buckle, ivory leather Gucci loafers and sunglasses by Gucci.
