Baron de l’Espée built the magnificent Château Ilbarritz on the heights of Biarritz. An elegant residence built for a health-conscious man who sought the fresh air of the Basque coast. Ultra-modern in its facilities for its time, it housed the largest private organ in the world. It is said that the castle was built around this majestic organ.
A bit like the Coast Society swimming shorts. A real swimming costume designed and built around the body of the person who decides to wear it.
This “Ilbarritz” version pays tribute to the creative madness of this elegant avant-garde baron and his philosophy of life “a healthy mind in a healthy body”. A vision of the art of living that fits perfectly with the Biarrots, the Basque coast and the Coast Society swimming shorts.
A design reminiscent of the aesthetic codes of the Basque Country; the green colour of the fabric, a tribute to the colours of the flag, adorned with the white Basque cross printed in all-over on it.
