Since it was founded in 2015 by friends Anna Laura Hoefer and Oliviero Muzi Falconi, Ripa Ripa has made quite a splash in the world of men's swimwear. The Milanese brand has become renowned for its contemporary take on classic Italian swimwear, taking inspiration from the relaxed style of the Mediterranean and 1960s Italy to produce elegant tailored swim shorts and breezy shirts that you could easily spend the whole summer in.
But who says that louche, laidback aesthetic has to be limited to the warmer months? Thankfully, the brand is now extending its repertoire beyond its summery offering to include garments that can be worn year-round. The latest addition to Ripa Ripa's range is the season-transcending Favignana shirt. Handcrafted in Naples from high quality Italian cotton pique in a relaxed fit, the shirt is designed to soften with wear over the years, resulting in a garment that hangs just right. It's available in vintage-style shades of blue, red or white, the slightly faded colours obtained through a light washing effect known as tinto in filo.
Not too heavy and not too lightweight, the ever-versatile Favignana shirt makes for the perfect transitional piece, ideal for bridging the gap between summer and winter. Wear it during the cooler months with a cashmere sweater and chinos or pair it with swim shorts on long, hot days at the beach.
