Cruise, or “Resort” if you are States-based, is the season where, in the northern hemisphere, the winter months are here, it’s dark on an evening, gloomy days and people are thinking of their winter sun. Cruise, as a season, stretches from November through February the following year.
With Cruise 2017, Orlebar Brown is celebrating the heady days of summer, with a palette inspired by the American vintage surf. Think Miami, retro ads of the 60s, with the futuristic shapes, colours and design.
The colour scheme for cruise season is usually somewhat subdued compared to the mid-summer and Orlebar Brown has mixed up mid-blues, with pastel greens, with a touch of darker green (Juniper) and dark red (Berry).
There are some new pieces for Cruise 2017, including Bulldog X, which is a variation of the regular Bulldog shorts, with a much thicker, almost wax-like fabric. The Bulldog X is designed for serious travellers, people who need to use their shorts for long periods of time. Think mountain climbers or jungle explorers.
