Swedish-based menswear label NIKBEN was borne from a desire to take swimwear to stylish new dimensions without sacrificing comfort and ease. Founders Nicklas and Benjamin forged a distinct brand identity from their unique experiences; Nik gre up near the beaches of southern Europe, with swimwear an integral part of his everyday wardrobe, while Ben spent summers sailing around the Swedish coast and studying at Central Saint Martins. After a chance meeting in Spain, the duo connected and resolved to create something entirely new for the menswear market – NIKBEN.

For NIKBEN, it’s all about balance. Traditional wallpaper-inspired patterns and tropical floral prints are re-imagined with a saturated palette of pop colours and kaleidoscopic finishes. Classic summertime shapes are given a contemporary twist, either with directional detailing, quick-dry technology, clever functionality… or all three. At its core, NIKBEN explores the concept that swimwear is not reserved for summer weekends – rather, it is a lifestyle. The brand prides itself on creating pieces that can be easily worn from beach to bar, and almost any occasion in-between.

THE ICONIC’s focused edit of NIKBEN swimwear is the perfect match for the modern man who lives life with tongue firmly in cheek. The range of swim trunks and boardshorts boasts designs to suit every style profile; think graphic spots, sun-soaked palm patterns and abstract lines that work just as well by the pool as they do with a linen shirt and loafers.
