Contrary to what you'd think, the best time to buy swimwear is... now. It's when lines start releasing their collections, and if you're in the market for a picturesque scene of, let's say, the coast of Cannes, then Orlebar Brown's pop-up may be for you.
The brand, known for its tailored swim trunks for men (but don't worry ladies– there's a swim line for you too!), has opened up a pop-up shop at Bal Harbour Shops with menswear, womenswear, and children's wear, starting with Cruise 2015. To open in Bal Harbour was actually a goal for its founder, Adam Brown.
"When I was planning Orlebar Brown, I tested our first samples in South Beach," he says. "I remember visiting Bal Harbour Shops and hoping we might one day be in there. I am thrilled that eight years later those hopes have become a reality."
The Orlebar Brown pop-up will be open through February, so head on over to stock up on your entire cruise-ready wardrobe.
