TOPMAN: The Swim Project

Last week we blogged about limited edition swim trunks for men. Now, as part of The Swim Project, Topman has unveiled their own exclusive shorts designed by some of the hottest fashion figures on the scene: Jonathan Saunders (who we picked as our Best of London), Bernhard Willhelm, Cassette Playa, Gary Card, photographer/blogger Todd Selby and their own in-house design team.

Most of the shorts are cut in a clean and classic mid-thigh silhouette and sport a range of unique prints that captures each designer’s aesthetic, from Saunders’ romantic cut ‘n’ paste florals to Willhelm’s surreal trompe l’oeil zipper. We particularly love the more whimsical options like Topman’s bicycle-printed shorts and Todd Selby’s Crayola-drawn kittens.

Swim shorts retail for a cool $80 and are available now online and at Topman stores.
