I am so excited to bring more news of this fantastic release directly to my readers!
As I announced last week, following the global success of the David Gandy for Autograph underwear line, we are now being dazzled with the imminent release of his swimwear range at the beginning of June 2015.
“The underwear collection has been really well received so launching swimwear this summer seemed like the natural step.”
I know I have been waiting for swimwear where the fit is impeccable, the type of clothing that leaves you feeling confident about wearing it, and presenting the best you to the world.
The Gandy listens, he knows menswear and designs with all of us in mind. To that end (and for me the most welcome introduction of the range), David has launched this swimwear range by waist size! Gone are the days of ill fitting garments that lump large groups of us into one universal size, this is the first swimwear range from M&S that has featured this sizing and this has allowed a more accurate fit – this is tailoring on a pair of swim shorts and that my friends will make a huge difference to how you wear them.
From 28″ – 40″ waist, this is the widest size range that you will find in high street swimwear.
From cobalt blue to orange, marine to David’s signature houndstooth, there are bolder colour choices across the 8 piece range. These are fashion forward pieces, with the high level of quality detailing that we have come to expect from David’s designs. Side size adjusters, contrasting buttons and the discreet use of the houndstooth print on the inside of the button fly to name just a few of the design features.
These shorts are at the very height of innovation, not favouring function or fashion, they are the perfect equilibrium of the two. The quick dry technology ensures that these trunks will smoothly transition from beech to the cocktail bar with absolutely no fuss.
These are premium swimwear styles with a lower rise, a slim fit shape, with a trendy shorter cut.
“I was inspired by images of Hollywood stars wearing beautifully made swimwear in the 60s”
(And the design allows us everyday blokes to look and feel good too!)
“The shorter short and lower rise shape that we introduced for underwear has become very popular so I’ve introduced this for swimwear too and have created a collection that can be worn in the pool or as casualwear throughout the summer.
The price for these amazing pieces are just £25 a pair.
Now I can’t guarantee that I will look as good as David in Them… They are afterall swim shorts not miracle workers!
The range will be available in 10 markets, internationally, including France, Turkey and Russia. They will be available online and in over 100 stores, and each one comes with a waterproof drawstring bag, so that if they are wet, you can put them in your bag safe in the knowledge the rest of the contents will stay dry!
I tip my proverbial sun hat to Mr Gandy and The Autograph team. I for one will be getting my hands on a pair or two… Or eight!
