He ended up making a bathing suit from the tablecloth, thereby bringing the first “Vilebrequin” into the world.  The “boxer-short” is born.  Satisfied with the revolutionary cut, but not the fabric, the young man tries out other materials, most notably a spinnaker textile that dries remarkably fast… the bathing suit becomes an overnight success, and devotees are still talking about it. Though a bit unusual, somehow all of the stars and jet-setters absolutely had to have one of Vilebrequin bathing suits. <br /> <br /> Having created a trend, Vilebrequin cultivates its spirit, remains faithful to its heart, and quite simply, becomes a legend around the world. Whether it’s the design, the originality, the choice of fabrics, the color combinations, the finishing touches or the innovative manufacturing techniques used, the two code words for Vilebrequin trunks are Quality and Comfort. <br /> <br /> Creator of the concept, “Like Father – Like Son,” the miniature version of daddy’s bathing trunks is available in sizes 6 months to sixteen years, in almost all of the solid colors and prints. Vilebrequin offers a large selection of printed and single-color bathing suits for fathers and sons, enough for an entire year of swimming. There’s also a full line of beach accessories in several colors (beach towels that match the bathing trunks, shirts, Bermuda shorts, linen pants, tee-shirts, sunhats, etc.)<br /> <br /> For more information please visit <cite><a href="https://www.vilebrequin.com/us/en/home" ping="/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.vilebrequin.com/us/en/home&ved=2ahUKEwjosLTeuNfgAhUjQhUIHZupCLUQFjAAegQIAxAC">https://www.vilebrequin.com/us/en/home</a></cite></div> </div> Vilebrequin East Hampton NY
