These trunks from Vilebrequin really go the extra mile. This limited-edition suit is gold-heavy: not only is it embroidered with 24 karat gold, but its drawstring is even made with 22 karat gold aglets. This exquisite suit features the brand’s symbolic sea turtle in gold, swimming on top a navy seascape background on Vilebrequin’s most iconic stye, the Moorea shorts. The best part is that they’re truly exclusive. If you buy this golden guy suit, you’ll be one of only 40 people in the world who owns it.

Vilebrequin, $8,000



Orlebar Brown‘s Setter suit in Sky Konig reminds us of the sky over Malibu, which is a perfect place to wear this haute suit. If you need another reason to buy it, this was the very style worn by James Bond himself in Skyfall. Cool, no?

Paul Smith, he of the colorful designs, brings his bright, cheeky charm to these Slim Circle Swim Trunks. This suit is functional as well as charming: it has hand pockets as well as one back zip pocket, and outside tab adjusters at the waist.

We couldn’t help ourselves: we loved this Vilebrequin suit so much that we had to mention the brand twice! Embroidered sharks swarm the blue seas on the Mistral Shark Swim Trunks, which feature a front drawstring with silver-tone tips, hand pockets, a back button pocket and double drainage grommets.
