Think Pink

Dare to wear pink. Colour is key and this summer, pink is the colour that you need in your wardrobe. You can wear it as either an accent or as a whole garment. Pink looks fantastic in combination with darker colours and as a bright ground for dark prints, check out our Rainhill and Fireworks swim shorts. Pink is also used in the leafy accents in the Patterson swim shorts. Always a statement colour, the cool guys are wearing pink this season.

The retro stripe

A trend you can’t miss this summer – the retro stripe. For inspiration, we’re looking to the groovy seventies. During this decade, designers took colour and form to a whole new level. Visuals were bold, bright and experimental. These happy forms and hues translate into funky colourful stripes. In celebration of this glorious time, we’ve created the striped Tano swim shorts in different colours.

Vintage photo print

Summer is the time of year to wear print. So what kind of print should it be? This year choose the design that emanates the season of the sun, the vintage photo print. This season the placed print is in! Loud and proud, you’ll be seeing these prints all over the beach. Go for a statement print, like the tropical palm tree print on our Dimer swim shorts. Printed as a placement on each leg, this design brings the sunshine to your outfit.

Make a statement with our Dimer swim shorts. Wear this vintage photo print with one of our basic T-shirts.

Print mix

The print mix – contrasting different kinds of prints to create maximum effect. We’ve had them in our collection for a few seasons and now it’s time for some reinvention. We’re taking a new series of prints and contrasting them against each other in cool patterned stripes. See our Firsby boardshorts to get an idea of this look. The Firsby also has the added quality of being made using eco-friendly bamboo fibre. Trend and sustainability in one.

The print mix: meet our Firsby swim shorts.

Co-ord

A short way of saying ‘a co-ordinated look’, it’s when your outfit is made up of two matching clothing pieces. An easy way of looking well dressed, meet the co-ord, your summer saviour. Co-ords are extremely easy to style and they can easily be combined with other items in your wardrobe. In this group, we also have crossover qualities, as our swim shorts are matched with polo shirts. See here our Souflee swim shorts and our matching Teston polo.

Cross over

Here at Protest, we use innovation to bring you the items you need to get there. We love the idea of clothing that is just as at home on the street as on the water. This is our crossover group meaning that you won’t be requiring an outfit change when the ocean calls you. We have surfable shorts that are made from material that have the structural appearance of streetwear fabric and then we have swim shorts that are printed with designs that give them street edge. Check out our Flagship surfable shorts and our camouflage printed Fisherman swim shorts for some street edge.
