Sunny Sports SS12 Drop

The 60’s inspired Summer brand Sunny Sports drops a great selection of laid back Summer essentials on our shores, just in time for the hot weather, as soon as these April showers clear.

The Japanese brand, established 2004 in Tokyo, base their collections around the easy going and laid back lifestyle of the American West Coast, with sun, sea and surf being at the core of the designs. The 50’s and 60’s vibe runs strong through these designs, with simple, playful prints that aren’t too out-there for the most of us.

The Catlina Shirt, which features a fish pattern print, also includes a 50’s style collar, made out of a lightweight cotton, perfect for keeping light and airy on a hot Summers day. Both t-shirts here are nothing ground breaking in design, but what they are is clean, simple and tick all the boxes that a good crisp white t-shirt should. My only negative comment would be on the price; at £115 for the pocket tee and £89 for the graphic tee, it seems pretty steep to me.

Lastly, the shorts. The shorts are the highlight of this drop, with the fish print Catalina shorts again in the lightweight cotton to match the shirt – it would put together a very strong look if worn well. The jersey sports shorts feature a western style print and drawstring waist with two side pockets, making these another strong short, but not as strong as the anchor all-over-print. Anchors might be some what of a played out design, but you cannot deny that if placed correctly they look great, and I have to admit these shorts do look great. Anchors in the middle of red dots, mixing some great popular prints that are doing the rounds right now. Again, these are lightweight to suit the time of year.

This summer drop has recently landed at the Garbstore and can be purchased online here. To find out more about Sunny Sports, check out their website.

    £90 for a t-shirt? “pretty” steep? these japanese brands really do take the piss when it comes to pricing

  • rob

    like the shorts but not at £145 Japs really price themselves out of a large number of potential buyers in the UK

  • cal

    I agree with Rob, its brands like this that loose potential by pricing themselves to high. Maybe the fabrics and tailoring do equal the cost of the garment I just think its steep.
