Summer Time: Orlebar Brown Shorts Obsession

Don’t you just feel like you need a break sometimes? A city break won’t do anymore, you need the piece and quiet, but most importantly, you need a bit of sun and heat in your life. This is just the best period for it, many people are impatiently waiting for their cheeky little holiday away, the bag is slowly getting loaded, but do you know what you are going to bring with you and still look fab?

Orlebar Brown is my favourite designer when it comes to good quality beach wear and great prints, so I made a selection of shorts exclusively from the Orlebar brand, and matching them with the coolest t-shirts around and the complementary beach towels.


1) Setter Short-Lngth printed swim shorts £160.00: If you feel funky and love a complex print, then these swim shorts are just the perfect ones for you, shorts who aren’t exactly considered swimwear nor shorts, they can be used to chill by the seaside without them getting drenched and vice versa. Fast dry system, they are perfect for being packed easily in your backpack if you feel like going for a quick swim in the pool and then move to the next party of the evening. The print somehow brings to mind the design of fish scales and we just love how cool they look!

We paired the wonderful shorts with a white J.W Anderson x MR PORTER t-shirt, a minimal white t-shirt that will focus the attention on the Orlebar shorts.

2) David Hicks Mid-Lenght printed swim shorts £140.00: Getting the style from the interior designer Mr Hicks, these super chic contemporary swim shorts are the perfect combination of chic, style and geometry. Edgy it up with a black Givenchy shark t-shirt to add that extra youth contrast made with the geometric shapes. Suitable for the dapper teenagers or 30 years old fashion enthusiasts.

3)Bulldog Mid-Lenght swim shorts £135.00: Colour blocking, we do love that! So why not embracing the summer spirit and choose a pair of yellow shorts to rock your summer style? Made with the fasty-dry fabric, these bad boys will definitely help you if you feel like you want to get noticed – and hey, we are talking about the good kind of attention – We decided to mix the shorts with a light beige Lanvin t-shirt, ultra stylish and making a great combo with the Orlebar yellow shorts!
