Second collection consists of twelve shorts inspired by the sea
Prince & Bond, the New York designer of contemporary men’s swimwear, has released it’s second collection, inspired by the sea, for Summer 2017. Sharp block colours include scarlet, tango, peacock and calypso, whilst the collection also includes two shark tooth prints which have taken a design cue from the artist M.C. Escher.
The second season shorts are all based on Prince & Bond’s “Elvio” signature silhouette. With a 5.5″ inseam and mid-length finish, the Elvio is designed to be a contemporary take on men’s swimwear, taking construction cues from tailored trousers. The shorts include adjustable waist tabs, a flat-fronted closure, two side slash pockets, a single zipped back pocket and side slits for flexibility. Manufactured in Portugal, using a 100% nylon fabric, and tested against chlorine, saltwater and UV rays, the shorts are quick-drying, enabling the wearer to choose a single pair to take them through the day.

The new season sees Prince & Bond partnering with New York artist Christina Chobot to create the painted Côte d’Azur and patterned The Wave shorts. The Côte d’Azur offers a vibrant rendition of a timeless Mediterranean lifestyle, bright colours have been used to reflect the contrast between the sea, pool and sky. The Wave is taken from an original oil painting, using a pattern to emphasise the chaotic nature of the sea.
At Short Motivation we are particularly keen to get our hands on a couple of pairs from Season II, so watch our social media for future inspiration. What has caught our attention is the cut, finish and attention to detail of the latest collection.
