Orlebar Brown, Purveyors of Awesome Men's Swim Trunks, Launches a Women's Collection
The #menswear guys love London-based line Orlebar Brown for its expertly tailored, nattily fashioned swim trunks. (And in more recent years, t-shirts, polos, and khakis, too.) But up until last week, us ladies had to settle for buying the men's version and cutting out the netting. Now that's all changed (!) with the launch of Orlebar's 15-piece womenswear collection, sold at Net a Porter, Barneys, Opening Ceremony, Harrods, and Montaigne Market in Paris. The line, which looks like something a '60s-era Bond Girl would enjoy wearing, features sexy-but-simple bikinis and flattering board shorts. I spoke with Orlebar Brown founder Adam Brown, who's currently in Florence for Pitti Uomo, to learn more about the collection.
