In possibly the nerdiest collaboration of all (yes even more so than those book clutches floating around last fall), The Paris Review—the literary journal based in NYC—commemorated its 60th anniversary by making...swim trunks. Orlebar Brown, the high-end men's swimwear brand out of Britain, created four versions bearing iconic covers from the journal and they retail for $320 at Barneys exclusively. Nerd on beach goers. Nerd on. [The Fashion Spot]
