Aloha prints

The Hawaiian print. This is the classic summer design and it’s always in style. Images of volcanos, palm trees and surfers transport you to an exotic paradise, exactly where you want to be this summer. Our vintage-inspired design is a season must-have. We’ve printed our Hawaiian design on the Confession short-sleeved shirt and our Ratley T-shirt. We’ve also used this print in the Picasso tank top.

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 Melba T-shirt. Here glorious colour is sewn together in panels. The Melba T-shirt is part of our new form initiative where we are reworking our fits to achieve the ultimate shape. This T-shirt has a boxy form, the fit is loose with a longer length.

The vertical stripe

There’s nothing more classic than stripes. This season we’re rotating the standard horizontal stripe, transforming this design into something new. This summer we’re embracing the vertical stripe. Easy to combine with print and solid colour, it’s a wardrobe essential. The best way to wear this trend is on a tee so check out our Ramsey T-shirt, combining a vertical stripe with some retro flavour. We’ve also added vertical detailing throughout the collection so take a look. A must for this season, it’s time to get vertical.

One of our favorites: our Ramsey T-shirt. Complete the look with one of our cool shorts.

Big leaf

Leafy greens are the rage in prints this season. Embrace the leaf, a print that comes in an abundance of form and hues. We’re taken this great motif and scattered it across shirts, T-shirts and shorts. These organic shapes look awesome on our Bitter short-sleeved shirt. We’ve also created a fantastic tropical leaf print for our Timmen shorts (soon online), just what you’ll be needing this summer.

The microprint is a great way to bring humour into your wardrobe. Our microprints are conversational designs and are unashamedly fun. We’ve got hula girls, hammocks and palm trees.

Co-ords

A short way of saying ‘a co-ordinated look’, it’s when your outfit is made up of a 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 swim shorts are matched with polo shirts and shirts. See here our Souffle swim shorts and our matching Teston polo.

Mix & Match for the perfect style.
