It doesn’t matter whether you’re headed for the beaches of blustery Britain or sun seeking in Santorini, there’s simply no excuse for bad beachwear. Whatever your summer holiday plans involve, a pair or two of stylish swim shorts are a suitcase essential. With that in mind, say hello to the newest brand to arrive in store and on the shelves of Robinsons, Bowler & Beach.

Established by brothers Matt and BJ, Bowler & Beach takes light-hearted British design and adds a touch of Portuguese flair, creating vibrant swim shorts that stand out on the beach for all the right reasons.  

Matt and BJ spent their childhood summers on the beaches of Portugal’s Algarve. Now, through Bowler & Beach, they’re conveying the colour and excitement that comes with spending a day in the sun with friends and family so well that you can almost smell the sea air.  The brothers know that London is one of the world’s design capitals, which is why those famous animal prints are designed right here in the UK capital. When it comes to production, the brothers turn to Northern Portugal, where luxury swim shorts have been made for years on end. Throw in great quality quick-dry fabric, luxury detailed trims and the craftsmanship of Portugal’s most talented, and you’re left with beachwear so good, it almost seems a shame to hide it away in the water.  

The Animals collection isn’t your average, meaning you’ll be centre of attention on the beach, by the pool or on the boat. Lobster, seahorse, swallow, elephant, stag or octopus; which Bowler & Beach man are you?

The first bank holiday of the year has been and gone and the weather is finally hotting up, which can only mean one thing; summer holidays are coming. Whether you plan on hitting the beaches of the Caribbean, heading to the surf of the British south coast or lounging poolside in the Mediterranean, make sure your POLO Ralph Lauren swimwear is the first thing in your case. 

Give a nod to the exotic Hawaiian tropics with an all over floral print, channel Moroccan vibes with the navy geometric design or keep it simple but chic in nautical but nice stripes. The triangle bikini style is simple but effective and side-tie bikini bottoms will elongate legs for a streamlined silhouette.
