HVNC's Solaris collection SS1516 offers classic briefs designed with modified front-shaping for greater space and comfort. The range also includes sunga-style trunks, a homage to the vintage cuts of the Seventies.
This summer’s colour palette takes inspiration from sun-bleached Turkish rugs; bright sorbet reds, cool mints and ocean blues. HVNC’s prints are inspired by the geometric patterns of Turkish kilims, Byzantine tiles, and architecture from the Mediterranean. A beautiful marble-print, available this season, is a homage to the Grecian and Roman artworks of Antiquity, exuding raw, masculine strength and timeless beauty. Modern fabrics, and cuts for every man are another signature of the brand.
Made from premium chlorine-resistant, UPF 50+, Italian Lycra - essential for surviving the summer sun - every piece is built to last. HVNC designs with quality in mind; products are tested to ensure they keep shape and colour, wear after wear, in saltwater and in chlorine. Every style is constructed using the highest quality digital printing techniques and quick-drying fabrics. The range is designed and made in Australia by highly experienced manufacturers of Australian swimwear. With a strong emphasis on quality, HVNC is for men who value well-crafted functionality, modern prints, and cutting edge printing techniques. HVNC reflects the active lifestyle of the modern gentleman, and combines the best of durable Australian design with a classic aesthetic.
HVNC swimwear was born out of a love for sun-drenched summers on Antipodean and European beaches, and the desire to provide men with fashion-forward swimwear that retains a masculine sensibility. The creative director/founder's years designing mens’ fashion for a range of brands, alerted him to a need to fill a void in the men’s swimwear market: “I have always been passionate about beach culture; so my love of menswear, design and art evolved into wanting to create a style of swimwear produced by specialist swimwear manufacturers.”
HVNC; a Latin word meaning this/here - pronounced as hunk - wants every beachgoer who sports its product to wear them proudly and uniquely. HVNC creates a classic and modern aesthetic for men leading active lives. HVNC celebrates the liberation of life and the freedom to be yourself.
