Even though August is reaching an end, there’s still a few weeks or more of good beach weather, depending on where you live. Now fashion-forward swimmers have some high-end options, as couture house Yves St. Laurent has unveiled a line of beach balls and pool floaties for some reason.

Whether that’s a good thing or not is still up in the air – if your fellow sunbathers tag you as the kind of person who would shell out extra cash for an inflatable orb just because it had a famous logo on it, you might get some sand kicked in your face.
