Already renowned for its high quality swimwear, Orlebar brown has released a new collection of clothing designed for the holidaymaker. Comfortable, relaxed yet easy to style, the Resort Collection is gift to those of us that are style conscious yet can’t quite bring ourselves to meticulously plan our wardrobe when all we really want to do is get out in the sun.
The meat of the collection is in its effortlessly smart basics. Shorts and chinos come in a variety of colours and can be worn long when you want to look your best or cuffed up for casual, easy-going style. The ‘felix’ polo shirt in a melange pique fabric has a classic style that would not look out of place in the world of Mr Ripley, whilst the long sleeved fitted shirts have a timeless versatility that will go with any ensemble.
The range also includes a selection of sweats in classic crew neck and hooded styles as well as a Harrington look sweatshirt that provides a balance of style and comfort that epitomises the collection. Relaxed towelling shorts take a classic approach to casualwear and wouldn’t look out of place either at the gym or around town.
Though the collection is fairly small, accessories are not neglected. Branded beach towels adhere to the label’s swimwear roots while their take on the rope belt will add an interesting nautical touch to an outfit. Neck scarves are on hand to accessorise the shirts, available in both solids and patterns, providing a more relaxed, bohemian alternative to a tie.
While this summer has mostly been about bold patterns and statement pieces, Orlebar Brown’s resort collection provides a range of quality basics that are easy to pull off – making it a great option for the easy-going holidaymaker who doesn’t want to fret about what to wear.
