L'Étale was launched by husband and wife Edouard and Jemima Boost in 2016. With a background in advertising, Edouard is the creative force behind L'Étale and works with customers to design their prints. Having grown up splitting his time between London and the Alpine village of La Clusaz in the Haute Savoie, Edouard aims for each design to exude the joie de vivre he has been brought up with. As a team, Jemima will make sure some of his wilder ideas are kept at bay, ensuring your designs will be perfect for any occasion.
designed for you, made to last
L’Étale swimming trunks sizes start from age 2 years upwards. We have meticulously sourced every element of your trunks to ensure they are of the highest quality, comfortable and designed to flatter any shape.
Like us, our trunks are made in Europe. Our first collection was handmade in the UK, but our factory is now in Porto, famous not just for its after-dinner drink but also being the global heartland of men’s swimwear. We use a mill just down the road from the factory, that’s been producing textiles since the 1930’s and supplies many of the world’s leading luxury swimming trunk brands. Our cloth has been specifically chosen for its durability, quick drying and soft feel.
The trunk pattern includes two eyelets at the back of the trunks to let water flow out easily, avoid billowing and enable quick drying. Two side pockets and a zipped back pocket will keep your valuables safe, and a smart drawstring waist will prevent any embarrassing situations as you slope out of the water. As the finishing touch, we can package the trunks in a beautiful gift-box, which we never tire of seeing unwrapped.
