Get Short With The New Charvet x Thorsun Collab

Charvet partners with Thorsun on its first men’s swimwear line

George Sotelo, founder of swimwear brand Thorsun, has known French fashion house Charvet, one of the most famous luxury shirt and tie purveyors, and its owner, Jean-Claude Colban, socially for years. Recently, Sotelo approached the brand about using Charvet’s iconic prints and patterns to create a capsule collection of men’s swim shorts. “George is both respectful of our approach and enthusiastic about its adaptation to his lifestyle,” says Colban. “We took our time to do it exactly how we all felt it was right.” The duo felt that Charvet’s repeats and abstract prints would be ideal for this application, and the resulting lightweight, water-resistant and quick-drying trunks are classic yet modern.
