THE GOOD LIFE -- In 2011, Sunspel was asked to recreate the iconic swim shorts worn by Sean Connery in his role as James Bond in Thunderball for the ‘Designing 007: Fifty years of Bond Style' exhibition at London’s Barbican. After months researching traditional swimwear we combined this knowledge with a modern design sensibility to create our first swim short.
Sunspel's classic swim shorts get an update this season in a new longer length, cut to sit just above the knee. Retaining the streamlined shape and fit of our traditional shorts, this new mid-length version adds a smarter finish to your holiday look, taking you from the bar to the pool seamlessly. For the ultimate in holiday style, pair our swim shorts with a white T-Shirt or opt for our relaxed Pima cotton pique shirts.
Crafted from a contemporary fast-drying performance fabric and lined with a superfine mesh - offering maximum comfort and refined appearance - the Sunspel swim short is the ultimate in versatile Riviera chic.
