Bracewell dominated the Australian fashion scene for twenty years from 1988-2008 focusing on womens wear. Bracewell now centres on the passion of Ollie Bracewell and Steve Brading. To create the best swim shorts in the world.
Ollie's earliest childhood memories date back to the mid 1990s at his father's factory in Surry Hills. Many years were spent observing the garment design process and visiting his father's shops, around Sydney and Melbourne.
Unbeknownst to him, these formative years were a blessing in disguise. An apprenticeship within the industry was being developed.
Bracewell's mission is to create the best swim shorts in the world, with a vision to take the brand globally.
Our newest range celebrates our love for the ocean and our Australian lifestyle, whilst being completely sustainable. This range has been produced using a fabric made entirely from recycled plastic that has been pulled from the ocean, creating a joyous synchronicity between a product that looks great, is incredibly comfortable but also helps to protect our precious resource.
