Swimwear for men: Robinson Les Bains at Pitti

Orlebar Brown may have the understated, English side of the mens swimming trunk market covered, but for something with a little bit of European flair it’s worth checking out the latest from Robinson Les Bains.

Christophe Vérot – an ex-water polo player – started up the brand in 2007 after experiencing that frustration we all feel from time to time: the kind where you search high and low for a particular item and discover it doesn’t exist. Vérot wanted men’s swimming trunks that were both stylish and practical, colourful yet sophisticated. So he created his own.

Robinson Les Bains’ presence at this summer’s Pitti Uomo proved the brand is still finding plenty of appeal with it’s luxury, vintage-inspired mens swimwear. Washes of retro sunset colours splash geometrically across some pairs; others have a classically French sentiment with blue and white stripes, or jouy prints available in both red and blue.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
