With the Summer holidays swiftly approaching, the temptation to update your warm weather wardrobe becomes increasingly difficult to resist. Quite rightly, there’s no reason as to why you shouldn’t treat yourself and thankfully, Whistles has got you covered.
Simples tees, everyday sweats and timeless sunnies make for the perfect summer wardrobe in the latest holiday edit from Whistles Mens. Collaborations with both Boardies and Dock and Bay have revealed exciting pieces including Whistles very first menswear swim collection, featuring a stunning and contemporary design from artist Rory McCartney, and two exclusive colourways from towel experts, Dock and Bay.
Whistles x Boardies
Designed in collaboration with the Boardies team, the bold collection features three great designs; the Rory McCartney green ‘Palm Dot’ print, a bold and contrasting three colour striped print and a simple but stylish blue block print pair featuring a special Boardies feature where the pattern only appears when wet. The collaboration is refreshingly stylish, providing a trendy and smart alternative to the awfully overdone ibiza themed short. The ‘Palm Dot’ print can also be found on a relaxed everyday tee and short sleeved shirt, with other clean essential tops to chose from.
Whistles x Dock and Bay
Something not seen all too often, Whistles has collaborated with towel brand and experts Dock and Bay to produce two very appealing quick drying towels, perfect for the Summer season. Two bold colourways, one being blue and the other green, provide excellent microfibre technology, with the best bit being sand won’t stick to them at the beach!!!
New to Whistles Men
Aside from the exciting collaborations Whistles has in store for the holiday season, they have also introduced two fantastic brands to their collection. Good News is a British contemporary footwear brand recently founded here in London. Ethical production, fair trade sourcing and great design are the three key elements to this exciting new brand, as they aim to make a positive change in the fashion industry, engaging with their audience and community to raise awareness on important issues. Whistles have also introduced skincare brand, Filmore, bringing Scottish crafted natural grooming products and nordic-inspired minimal design together to create a simple but effective skincare range.
