As 2018 comes to a close, we have taken the time to reflect on what has been a wonderful year in the world of Fashion. This year we saw the emergence of many trends. However, it is safe to say that Resort Wear has increased its ever-growing popularity. So, we have put together a definitive list of our favourite resort wear brands of 2018.


Born out of Bondi in 2012, Venroy encapsulates the resort wear style of Australia’s most iconic beach. Venroy was the brainchild of two childhood friends. They are adamant about ensuring that their brand produces the highest quality of clothing by being fully in control of the production process, from design to displaying in their Bondi storefront.

What started out as a swim short brand has expanded to a full leisurewear collection. Catering for both men and women, Venroy offers the perfect clothing for Australian summer as 90% of their products are linen, with remaining products being made from rich cotton, cashmere and Japanese denim.

The iconic Australian brand, Camilla, has now opened their doors to the world of men’s fashion. This vibrantly bohemian institution has a range of resort wear items such as swim shorts and short-sleeved shirts, all adorned with Camilla’s signature vivid patterns. Each Camilla item is lovingly crafted by hand, ensuring each item is of the highest quality.

Orlebar Brown

Founded by photographer Adam Brown in 2007, Orlebar Brown is where classic British tailoring and resort wear meet. Offering a more tailored approach to men’s resort wear, Brown envisioned the perfect short that is not only perfect for the water but is smart enough to wear throughout the day.

Nikke Horrigan

Nicholas Horrigan’s namesake brand features unique designs that derive from a mixture of European influence and a relaxed Australian aesthetic. His latest collection features a number of striped linen shirts that pair with both jeans and boat shorts. These easy to wear pieces allow you to dress down in style.

Frescobol Carioca

What started as a beach bat stand in Brazil’s golden age in 1945 has grown into a worldwide Resort fashion house. Each collection takes pride in its Brazillian roots and showcases the beautiful colour palette that the country has to offer. Inspired by the untouched rainforests of Brazil, Frescobol Carioca’s Resort 18 line features a delightful vintage colour palette that we just adore.
