For FW19, London-based brand Orlebar Brown focuses on their ‘Feel Summer’ spirit; showing that no matter what time of year, that spirit embodies adventure, life and movement. The palette comprises classic autumnal shades of black, navy, seaweed, mulberry and shadow grey with pops of signal blue, bright chartreuse and dark papaya that add vitality to the collection.
Compared to the relaxed, languid mood of previous collections, FW19 captures the restless energy of the sea with simultaneously functional and stylish pieces designed for exploration. Central to the collection is action, with new photographic prints depicting adrenaline-inducing kitesurfing and surfing.
The new sport range has taken on new dimensions for the ultimate hybrid capsule; functional design meets Orlebar Brown’s signature refined tailoring. In a monochromatic palette of obsidian black and grey melange, with styles featuring bonded seams and technical fabrics, this is athleisurewear the Orlebar Brown way; practical enough for when you’re exercising but sleek enough for when you’re not.
A staple for the men’s resort wear brand, maritime stripes are a frequent recurrence but in the context of this sea sports-themed collection, the pattern holds a particular relevance for its sailor-inspired roots. From swim briefs and shorts to polos and sweats, there’s something for every man with a penchant for timeless style and a love of the coast.
The outerwear offering is well-rounded with water- resistant cagoules and lightweight gilets while the technical Hillgard jacket is the ultimate choice for testing weather conditions. Offering excellent benefits including 650-fill power down insulation, ribbed snow guard cuffs and a detachable hood, Orlebar Brown proves that their expertise in functional and desirable menswear firmly extends beyond their iconic tailored swim shorts.
