Back in 2012 we launched our very first collection of Tom & Teddies – bright, bold and gloriously graphic swim shorts featuring marine-life designs, including a fun, large-scale, two- tone Octopus pattern that very quickly became a bestseller.
Our distinctive Octopus print started out as a hand-painted illustration in a fresh blue and red colourway. Although an unusual combination of shades, our very first customers loved it – it appealed to both adults and kids and the matching pairs of trunks were all snapped up within weeks.
Since those early days, we’ve restocked the Octopus countless times, and we’ve also introduced it in a range of different colour combos – each one as popular as the last. Six years on, and this design is still going strong. It looks as fresh and bold as ever – the epitome of Tom & Teddy style!
