Animal launches new 2014 summer collection 'Bishopsgate' trunks on sale from Animal this season

Animal, the UK’s leading action sports lifestyle brand, has unveiled its men’s spring and summer range for 2014.

The new collection boasts an impressive line up of tees, shirts, vests, sweat tops, board shorts and much more - all pieces inspired by Animal’s passion for beach life and action sports.

Here’s the low-down on Animal’s Spring Summer story…

Lord of the Boardshorts

Boardshorts – the epitome of surf style are routed in Animal’s DNA!

This summer, the range and diversity is perfect whether you’re in the water or simply chilling on the sand. From big floral prints to bold block colours, stripes and photographic prints – this collection offers an epic 20 different styles in over 30 patterns.

Favourites this season include the ‘Barstow’, featuring casual drawstring ties, soft suede touch fabric and an overlay of stunning surf photos from British Surf Champion Alan Stokes’ travels.

For those liking something a little shorter, the ‘Butler’ is a floral beach blast of a boardie in a killer print for the summer months.


Available in striped versions as well as graphic and washed out pieces – these fresh style Animal vests team perfectly with the boardshorts for a relaxed beach break look that will take you from the surf to the street.

If festivals are more your thing, pair with some of Animal’s tailored shorts to see you through the best of the UK summer’s music events. 

Animal love the ‘Laco’, a thrown-on 100 per cent cotton vest top with a cool spaced dyed effect.

Awash with Animal life, the ‘Laycroft’ and the ‘Lartican’ summarise Animal’s brand spirit with image led graphic prints, highlighting their heritage in UK action sports.

Both smart and casual tailored shirts are fused into the range with new checks and prints introduced for Spring Summer.

The ‘Santi’ and the ‘Seashack’ celebrate a true tropical summer vibe.


Long sleeved tops, chuck over hoodies and fitted denim shorts are combined with a great polo shirt collection to mix and mash the range.

Animal’s iconic logo hoodies offer brushed back fleece for a super soft feel - perfect to pull on for chilled out summer evenings.

The ‘Ross’, a smart polo top has been treated with an acid wash to create an original and rugged washed effect for versatility, without compromising on style.

Established in 1987 by two surfers who developed a solution to their watch straps that broke under extreme conditions – Animal has now become the original UK action sports lifestyle brand.

As well as offering a good selection of menswear, Animal boasts an extensive team of riders in each of its core sports: Surf, BMX, free ski, skate, mountain bike and snowboard.
