An early summer, marooned (happily) on the world's biggest island, and a struggle to find stylish Australian men's swim shorts for a stylish man who had grown out of board shorts. For designer Kirsten Ainsworth, this seemed an incongruous problem to have. After talking to more than a hundred Australian men, it seemed she wasn't the only one who couldn't find Australian designed men's swimwear that fitted well and looked great.
Not shy of a fashion challenge, Ainsworth's first fashion label Caravana was based in Pakistan and won Sydney Fashion Week's New Gen award. This brand was sold in David Jones in Australia, Liberty in London and Villa Moda in the Middle East. A London stint followed were she honed her craft with leading labels AllSaints and Temperley, until Sydney's sun beckoned her home to discover the plight of men on our beaches.
The Rocks Push swim shorts are well fitting, great looking and most of all, they're functional. Designed to go from the beach to the bar, these are wear-all-weekend swim shorts. A style for most, colours for many and clever features, like waterproof wallets and shorts bags, that make spontaneous living easy.
Proudly Australian, The Rocks Push takes its name from Australian history; The Rocks Push gang ruled Sydney from port to beach and they were the best dressed baddies in town.
