At their cobbled Covent Garden store, Orlebar Brown well and truly set our holiday hearts beating with their upbeat branding and fun photographic prints (helped along by the topless standing models outside – with cute dogs, no less).
For SS15 Orlebar Brown focused on the theme of ‘water’, specifically its unique interplay with light, colour, pattern and movement. Inspired by coral, underwater plant life, tropical fish and the abstract geometry of rocks, the colours were vibrant and varied. Bright tangerine, dark purple, deep blue and anemone pinks were seen on the brand’s signature shorts, while retro photographic pool prints and OB slogans adorned classic crew neck tees. Perfect for laid-back holiday lounging.
