Introducing Craig Port Swim for Spring/Summer 2015


For Spring/Summer 2015 (SS15) Craig Port channels a happy, carefree, holiday spirit with a
Swimwear collection set to become one’s essential vacation companion. The collection was influenced by 1970’s poolside utopia, retro athletics and bohemian hedonism. The styles takes you from sun lounger to sun downer with a clink of a glass.
 

Inspired by his #PortSquad of celebrities, friends and models, Craig designed the collection with the male form in mind, a true ode to summer and the team you definitively want to be a part of this season.
 

Briefs in either square or box cut are made from quick dry performance fabrics in navy, white or ‘Baywatch’ red. Careful attention has been paid to designer details, thoughtful branding and eye-catching trims that give the collection a refined edge.
 

The wax cotton PORT short, available in either mid or shorter length, comes in an array of jewel toned tribal prints that celebrate modern Africa. Tourmaline and tanzanite tones give playful cuts a sophisticated feel that wouldn’t go amiss at Coachella or the beaches of Formentera.
 

Craig Port hosted his eagerly awaited SS15 Swimwear launch, on Saturday 21 November 2015, in association with South African Menswear Week at The Glen Boutique Hotel & Spa in Sea Point, Cape Town. The event saw media darlings, celebrities and VIP guests welcomed with an Aperol Spritz, who then made their way to the terraced pool area to be serenaded by Acoustic Element who set the tone for a sweltering afternoon to celebrate the official opening of the summer swimwear season. Zolani Mahola from Freshly Ground treated guests to a surprise performance.





Pieces from the collection start from R450.00
