The Vilebrequin emblem is the sea turtle, and for the brand, it’s more than just an insignia to throw on their shirts and shorts. Partnering with Plant A Fish (not to be confused with Plenty of Fish), Vilebrequin is helping to reintroduce sea turtles to the sea of El Salvador. Developed by Fabien Cousteau—a third generation ocean explorer, filmmaker and environmental ambassador—Plant A Fish works to repair marine ecosystems and reintroduce threatened species to the ocean. Vilebrequin and Cousteau even joined together to create a capsule collection of Father & Son trunks to encourage men to inspire their sons to respect and care for the environment. With every purchase, $10 is donated to the initiative.
On top of awesome shorts, a rich history and basically saving the
world marine environment, the guys over at Vilebrequin also travel to unknown beaches throughout the world with suggestions for places to stay, things to do and which surf to ride. So if you’re looking for new swim trunks this season and trying to decide between that super-sexy Speedo and the same, go-to brand you’ve been wearing for a few years now, it might be time to shake things up. We suggest the pink seals.
Vilebrequin is available online and priced from $185-$740.
