You know we’ve reached peak Instagram-hype when you can get your social media snapshots on a pair of board shorts. Taking personalization to a whole new level, Orlebar Brown is letting shoppers design their own swim trunks with any Instagram image they’d like, whether it’s a beach-worth photo from your last trip to the Maldives or a picture of your morning cup of java (#coffeelover). The shorts, dubbed #Snapshorts, are part of the brand’s new Design Your Own bespoke service where you can customize swimwear by size, length, style and of course, Instagram image.
For those who have a little trouble channeling their inner Ansel Adams, Orlebar Brown has an entire series of inspirational shorts for you to pour through, submitted by fashionable men and style savvy publications around the world. You can sift through the designs presented by GQGermany and France, designer Charlotte Olympia, and bloggers like Sebastian Schmidt and Anthony Urbano. (If you’re truly struggling for ideas, the brand has a number of curated prints you can choose from.) Once you found some sartorial inspiration, download the #Snapshorts app, create your shorts and submit your design. Your customized trunks will show up at your door in three weeks.
#Snapshorts are available online at Orlebar Brown and priced at $595.
