Marc Jacobs / Daily Mail
Following on our previous post of Marc Jacobs spending Christmas in Saint Barthélemy, the fashion designer was pictured on New Year's eve by the beach, still at the Caribbean island. Not sure how he could wear a fur coat (Prada SS2014 no less), and t-shirt + shorts all within the space of a week in the same location. But who am I to argue, he sets the trend even before we know it.
On New Year's eve, Marc Jacobs wore a pair of "Surfing Safari" photographic shorts from Orlebar Brown. The shorts featured an archive photo of people surfing by the beach in gorgeous bluish green waters, which matches his backdrop beautifully. Back in November, I posted a picture of the same shorts to my Instagram when I came across it at the press day, it was (and still is) on my wishlist, glad to see we share the same taste! It is a gorgeous pair of shorts with a happy summery print, a pair of shorts we can swim in and also hit the town with. I thought Marc looked really good in the pictures, contrast this to previous years where he wore skimpy lycra shorts with a Hermes Birkin as a beach bag. He looked happy there which is a plus too.
You can shop the Orlebar Brown "Surfing Safari" shorts online from Orlebar Brown, Mr Porter (US) and Mr Porter International.
