Club Tropicana: The 80s Casual Classics Way
Our latest selection of getaway goodies from Fila like the classic Fila tennis shorts will have you singing the words to the feel good Wham track from 1983.
“Club Tropicana, drinks are free. Fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone. All that’s missing is the sea. But don’t worry, you can suntan.” The catchy chorus to Wham’s ‘Club Tropicana’ hit from 1983, a song that gave us suntans, sunglasses, swim shorts & a glamourous 80s poolside party vibe that we all wanted to be apart of. Filmed on location at the Pikes Hotel in Ibiza, the video was a testament to the glamorous playboy lifestyles of the 1980s. Nick Love’s ‘The Business’ from 2005 also had a bit of a Club Tropicana vibe, but with more Terrinda’s than trumpets. When all said and done you can’t really beat them poolside 80s vibes, a fruity cocktail and the latest getaway goodies from Fila like the Fila Botazzi tennis shorts which now arrive in an updated pink colourway.
