Why:The New York Times' fashion critic Cathy Horyn recently said, "fashion is perversely and infinitely unfair." Truer words have never been spoken. Case in point? It's currently a rain-y, chilly mess in New York City, and spring clothing is mocking us from brightly lit store windows. Thanks to a totally twisted delivery process, we see clothes about six months ahead of when they're ready, and stores receive them about a month or so before the weather changes. But that didn't stop us from taking note at swimwear line Orlebar Brown's latest offering for this upcoming summer (summer is coming -- we promise!). Last season's house print of the flowery Hibiscus print has given away to a more austere -- but still youthful and festive -- geometric pattern (aptly titled 'Geometric'). And while the use patterns and colors up the style quotient it's the fit that really gets us. The brand eschews the baggy, sagging boardshort mentality of yesteryear and cuts a leaner, more modern option for the beach.
And speaking of things being unfair, take a peek of this video above featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the Orlebar Brown spring 2011 look book in Greece. Needless to say, there are hot, shirtless boys involved. Happy weekend!
