The name Nik Ben is an amalgamation of the names of two close friends who set out to revolutionize men's swimwear. Born in Sweden, Nicklas aka NIK was bred on the beaches across the southern parts of Europe. Swimwear became his natural choice of apparel in his everyday life, not only for lazy days bumming on the beach, but also at the gym, relaxing at home or even on the golf course.
Benjamin aka BEN was born on the Swedish west coast, typically spending his summers hopping from island to island on sailboats in their renowned archipelago. He would later be found at Central Saint Martins in London - surrounded with endless amounts of inspiration and creativity, he developed a vision to establish a product that would bring fashion to new dimensions.
NIK and BEN crossed paths in Spain, bonded instantly, a few years onwards they decided to take destiny in their own hands - the rest is history.
The brand’s mission is to spread a happy message and the new Nikben collection features prints that all make a truly happy‐go‐lucky statement. All styles feature a tailored, slightly slim silhouette reminiscent of the pastel‐colored beach life on the Mediterranean in the 50’s and 60’s combined with powerful influences of fashion, music, and street culture.
