In anticipation of those long summer days ahead, I’m on the hunt for the best new swimsuits to add to my beach wardrobe. I’ve never shied away from colour and these one-pieces in shades of red tick that box for me (Heidi Klein always being a particular favourite), while no list that includes men’s styles would be complete without a classic pair of tailored swim shorts from the kings of the good fit, Orlebar Brown. Set up in 2007, their styles owe more than a passing nod to the Talented Mr Ripley and their quality and provenance is such that if you forget to wash them out or leave them in the sun to dry they won’t deteriorate. From Ibiza to Cornwall, they’ll make sure you’re looking and feeling great this summer. Just add flip-flops.
