Swim shorts are currently available from a lot of menswear brands right now. However, what makes a swimwear collection stand out is the quality, cut and design. Nicolas Alexander possesses all three of these critical elements, making it the men’s swimwear brand to keep an eye on in 2018.
Husband and wife duo, Nick and Anastasia first conceptualised the brand at the beginning of 2016. By June that year, they had packed up their lives in Sydney, boarded a one-way flight bound for Europe with the ambition to bring Nicolas Alexander to life. The concept was to create a premium men’s swimwear brand for the ambitious and adventurous that refused to blend in. The belief was that men’s swimwear had become somewhat predictable and mainstream and so it was about creating high quality swim shorts that embraced an individualistic and distinctive style.
2017 saw Nick and Anastasia move to Porto and dedicate themselves to finding the ideal manufacturing partner, sourcing the highest quality fabrics and hardware, perfecting the pattern and implementing a rigorous testing and sampling process. The result of that persistence and dedication is the highly anticipated Modern Nomad Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Within this collection you will find the stunning Nomad swim short available in eight vibrant and distinctive prints as well as three striking solid colours.
The Nomad is a timeless mid-length swim short that is all about attention to detail. Every single element has been considered, from the French fly to the signature tortoise shell buttons and the hand stitched embroidered branding across the back of the waistband. The Nomad is the ultimate ‘all occasion’ summer short. Whether you are lounging by the pool, diving into the Aegean Sea, strolling through St. Tropez or enjoying an alfresco brunch at Lake Como, the Nomad is the short for you.
When asked where the motivation and drive came from, Nick and Anastasia agreed that their common desire was to finally start doing something they love and to create a life that sees them follow their passions. They went on to suggest that Nicolas Alexander is a testament to what can be achieved when you are willing to take a few risks, believe in yourself and work exceptionally hard.
Nick and Anastasia have no plans to slow down. Even though the debut SS18 collection has just been released, they have already completed the design process for SS19, which will see them introduce a second style of swim short as well as lightweight short sleeve summer shirts and of course, their revolutionary microfiber towel. So, for you men out there that appreciate the highest level of quality and are looking to stand out this summer, then
