Taking inspiration from 1950s and 1960s surf culture, the collection delivers a healthy dose of effervescent Californian spirit. Featuring a new Sunset Silhouette photographic print shot by model-turned-photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and Clementine orange accents against tonal greys of Chalk, Alloy and Granite, the palette embodies the adventurous spirit of sun-drenched American road trips.
Carefree, functional and stylish with expert warm-weather tailoring throughout, the Wye hooded cagoule and Ransley blazer offer laid-back layers while the Foracker hat and Haston Stripe flip flops are coastal essentials. The Bassett trunk style makes a comeback to the swimwear collection, and the shorter-length Setter swim shorts have numerous editions in retro, sporty and luxe styles, ensuring there’s an option for every activity and occasion.
Two new exclusive images featuring beachside pools by esteemed society photographer Slim Aarons join the eponymous collection of photographic print mid-length Bulldog swim shorts. Alternative prints for the season include geometrics created in small-scale tessellation for a softer approach to pattern, while a vintage print from the Design Library archives has been revived for the flamboyant ‘Summer Scenes’ print used across different categories. Orlebar Brown has taken classics like crewneck tees, polos and sweatshirts and given them a subtle rework for their new season styles, with details like ribbing, racking, contrast binding and zip plackets. Versatile Aquamarine and Sea Breeze blues combine with an undertone of vintage nostalgia for the ultimate capsule summer wardrobe.
The collection will be available from 15th March 2020 at orlebarbrown.ae, in store and at selected stockists worldwide.
