When summer comes around we’d all rather be on the beach, but this isn’t always possible. Recognising this, Nikben produces exemplary beachwear that’s ideal for lounging around on the coast, but is equally stylish in the city. Ideal for wearing when it’s simply too hot for anything else, Nikben’s range of Cuban collar shirts and versatile shorts will inject a dose of riviera chic into your wardrobe. 

Founded in Sweden, Nikben was created with the goal of producing garments suitable for the beach, but comfortable and easy to wear away from it. The brand takes a strong stance on sustainability, manufacturing many of its pieces from recycled marine litter, and continues to utilise vivid colours and statement patterns, which have become a signature of the brand. 

If you’re looking for ecological warm weather clothing or simply want to add to your existing summer wardrobe, these pieces are a good place to start. 

3 key Nikben pieces

Black watch swim shorts 

Cut from a 100% recycled polyester black watch pattern fabric, these quick drying swim shorts boast two side pockets and one back pocket, as well as a mid-length cut. The simple pattern and subtle colour scheme ensure they’re easy to wear away from the beach, and will pair well with a wide range of short sleeve shirts. 

Towelling Cuban collar shirt

A key piece in Nikben’s collection, this short-sleeve Cuban collar shirt is made from a super-soft cotton Terry fabric, making it ideal to don post-dip. The soft pink shade is said to be inspired by the pink walls of Marrakech, and works as the ideal statement colour for your summer wardrobe and beyond. 

Limoncello Cuban collar shirt 

For something a little bolder, this patterned Cuban collar shirt should do the trick. Made from a soft, drapey viscose fabric, the striking lemon pattern set against black and white stripes makes for a graphic shirt that will wear well against a pair of the brand’s swim shorts.
