celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in 2007, the clothing and hardware brand has come a long way from it’s roots as a watch strap manufacturer. The brainchild of two surfers, who found their watches kept getting lost in big waves and designed a durable strap to combat this, Animal now makes clothes for surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding, as well as all other board sports. Animal Girls is the continuation of the Animal ethos: hard wearing, durable clothes, tested by riders and experts for performance, with a design-led influence. Animal Girls clothes don’t compromise on style or performance, and this had led to the brand becoming one of the UK’s most successful surf clothing brands today. Their selection of clothing for Girls ticks all of the boxes, from functional boardshorts with designs to match their range of swimwear, to pretty dresses that are ideal as a cover-up after a long day on the beach- Animal Girls covers all of the bases.
