Hunks in trunks — plus adorable dogs. Orlebar Brown designer Adam Brown knows how to stage an Instagram moment, filling the window of his Floral Street shop with buff models in his spring swimwear, each accompanied by a different pooch.

Brown went for an underwater theme, decorating his beachwear with coral, amoebas and fish, or photo prints depicting beach, poolside or surfing scenes. On a more cerebral trip was a grainy black-and-white print of a seascape by Australian photographer Jon Frank, achieved via a pinhole camera.

After seven years in business, 55 percent of the collection is nonswim, primarily T-shirts and polos. Brown extended his signature toweling fabric into a blazer and long-sleeve shirt, but wisely left these items out of his steamy window display.
