We are truly living in the age of the inflatable pool toy. Once the purview of tadpoles alone, the fanciful novelties shaped in the likes of everything from swans to pizza slices have become the poolside finishing touch du jour.
Now, thanks to a collaboration between Missoni and pool floaty makers Funboy, an elegant set of butterfly wings is eligible for addition to your floating menagerie. Available in two colourways—a cool blue-green and a warmer orange—the wings are designed to flank the lounger. That is to say, instead of the insect’s thorax, head, and abdomen, there’s you. After all, if you’re not supine on a Missoni-patterned floating simulacrum of butterfly wings, what’s the point of having a swimming pool at all?
