You can now create personalised swim shorts on your smartphone

As any owner of Orlebar Brown’s best board shorts knows, photographic prints of seaside scenes and sunny vistas – particular those taken by legendary photographer Slim Aarons – have become a signature of the luxury swimwear brand.
However, if you’ve ever thought a snap from one of your superyacht cruises could give Aarons a run for his money now is your chance to see it immortalised in your holiday wardrobe. Today sees the launch of Orlebar Brown’s #SnapShorts app, which allows you to design your own tailored swim shorts using the image of your choosing.
The easy-to-use app lets you take a new picture or upload one from your existing library as well as edit, rotate, crop, scale and position the image to create your perfect pair of personalised shorts which you can then buy through the app. The custom swim shorts are available in Orlebar Brown’s popular Bulldog style and come in four lengths and a wide variety of sizes.
So what to put on yours? While the brand’s designers typically favour beach scenes the world is your oyster when it comes to designing your own. A favourite family photograph, a sketch, an interesting pattern or even a great shot of your superyacht will all make great, unique swim shorts. Better yet, your design will take only three weeks to create meaning you have plenty of time to find your perfect image before the Med season gets underway.
The Orlebar Brown #SnapShorts app is available to download now from the App Store and Google Play with the custom swim shorts priced at £395 per pair, visit orlebarbrown.co.uk.
