With a moody, monochromatic palette
In the past, we’ve seen all kinds of colourful shirts, shorts and beachwear from Orlebar Brown – even items that incorporate dramatic prints from famous photographers, tropical beach settings or movie posters, as in the case of the recent James Bond capsule collection. But for its new outdoor adventure line, OB Black, the London-based brand has kept to a simple monochromatic palette of obsidian black and grey melange.
But there is still plenty to be excited about with this unique hybrid capsule, which blends functional design with Orlebar Brown’s signature refined tailoring. Styles feature bonded seams and technical fabrics, with sporty iterations of some of the brand’s bestselling items – mid-length Bulldog swim shorts, the long-sleeved OB-T and Sebastian polo shirt have all been given a high-tech makeover, featuring bonded ‘no sew’ seams with PU seal tape for a clean, modern aesthetic. Reflective branding and tonal buttons or zips add the finishing touch.
Coordinating sweats in classic silhouettes comprise of a three-piece set, including tracksuit bottoms, a crewneck sweatshirt and funnel-neck pullover. Tailored in a melange-grey cotton-wool blend, they offer an elevated weekend option for relaxing by the coast or for travelling in. Then the carbon-black outerwear includes a lightweight, water-resistant cagoule jacket and gilet, both with secure zip pockets and applied piped tape for reinforcement at the seams.
Sophisticated, understated and technical, the OB Black collection is perfect for outdoor adventuring. Find the items online, or at the Orlebar Brown store in Dubai Mall.
