Inspired by the trunks of surfers, the first boxer shorts were created and given the name “Vilebrequin,” meaning engine “crankshaft” in English, in honor of the designer’s passion for cars. Available in several different colors, the Vilebrequin swimsuit was an immediate success. Easy-to-wear and comfortable, it represented the convergence of elegance and laid-back style. From the beaches of Saint-Tropez, the new brand gained a following among the most distinguished celebrities, becoming the most sought-after style for those in search of the latest trends.
Available in Vilebrequin Retail Stores, at Vilebrequin.com, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, and Nordstrom.
