Orlebar Brown SS15 Pitti Preview
When it comes to high-end beachwear, few other brands have earned the success and recognition of Orlebar Brown…and rightfully so. It feels kind of limiting referring to OB as purely beach/swimwear, especially since the company has been constantly evolving to expand and improve their offerings.
Although their swim shorts and casual polos still take the lead when it comes to brand awareness and sheer quality, namely the versions with photographic prints, the SS15 collection features welcome additions such as a variety of tees using the same technique, sweaters, shirts and sneakers. Besides the quality and fit of the garments, production is based in Portugal which just adds another note of personal love from my end. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit their facilities soon and grant you a sneak peek into the backstage.

Orley SS14 Lookbook
I first met the trio behind Orley during Pitti Uomo 83 and couldn’t help to be amazed by their outstanding knitwear offerings (they were showing AW13 at the time). The american based, italian made label is an expert when it comes to knitwear, incorporating highly advanced techniques into sweaters, cardigans and jackets. For SS14, the brand presents yet another refreshing and irreverent approach, expanding the collection to incorporate tailored trousers and relaxed pleated shorts.
