Front Runners July 2015: Dog Days of Summer
Allowed on any beach, the Orlebar Brown Dane II Dog Print swim shorts (orlebarbrown.com) are part of a series of swimwear that features images of dogs photographed by the British brand’s founder, Adam Brown. “Before starting Orlebar Brown, I was a portrait photographer of people mainly, but as a bit of a dog lover, I did a series of about 70 portraits as a personal project,” says Brown. “It’s great to see them come to life on our swim shorts.” The dog prints are digitally printed on the swimsuits, which are made of polyester and priced at $345. The brand also offers T-shirts that display dog images.
