Harry Brantly is one of the founders of FB Collection. His Brazilian roots, combined with his co-founder Max Leese’s passion for designing new and exciting items and their mutual love for the beach led to their concept of building the perfect beach collection. FB Collection was founded in Rio de Janeiro, in the summer of 2005, with the launch of the brand’s signature beach accessory FB Frescobol. FB Collection has brought Frescobol to beaches across the globe from Asia to Europe, the Caribbean and back to its origins in South America.
What is luxury?
Something truly beautiful, intricately designed and crafted, which our customers feel is bespoke or one of a kind.
What are three luxuries you allow yourself?
1. Shoes – it’s very important to have good shoes and I always hear that ladies rate this as a priority.
2. My Apple gear - what would life be like without my MAC, iPhone, iPod...
3. Time in Angra - nothing can bring me back to life more than a few days amongst these amazing islands just south of Rio. Days are spent on secluded beaches followed by long “lunches” that start at around 6pm and go on into the early hours.
