Established in 1971 in St Tropez, France, by passionate motor racing fan, Fred Prysquel, Vilebrequin's first swim shorts design was drawn on the corner of a café tablecloth. Named after the French word for crankshaft, the driving enthusiast created a brand famous for vibrant prints and bright colours. Crafted from durable, quick-drying spinnaker canvas that offers both quality and comfort, Vilebrequin is admired for its classic Moorea cut. A must-have beach getaway item, each luxury pair of swimming shorts goes through 32 manufacturing phases to bring the very best in swimwear. The brand has since expanded to include a range of bikinis, swimsuits and stylish kaftans, which will make an essential addition to your holiday repertoire.
