VELORUM SPRING SUMMER 17

We shoot these beautiful pieces in Aruba, we decided to go south, to San Nicolaas, away from the sandy beaches of Noord. It is hard to tell you which one is my favorite piece from the collection but they are all unique and special. The mesh tops, the jumpsuits, the print on the shorts. This is truly a special collection that I had the privilege to shoot with my friend Isaiah. All these pieces are available online and in selected stores around the world, click here to visit Velorum’s website.

BJORN BORG SWIMWEAR

Bjorn Borg swimwear, “designed to make you feel active and attractive”, this is how the iconic brand describes their swimwear and they’re right. The multicolor piece I’m wearing is called Dryland, these vibrant shorts really pops and that’s how I like my swimwear, to really attract attention. They’re 5 inches, so just above the new to get the legs really tanned. The print is really interesting, it is a colored desert that at first, to me, it looked like butterfly wings: I wore it this past weekend to the beach, they’re quick dryers which is one of the most important features on a great pair of swim shorts. They have a classic cut with an elastic waistband and cord to keep them in place. The design is on point, they do not look puffy at al which is another important feature. Whos likes those unflattering puffy shorts? The quality is great like every Bjorn Borg piece and the price is fantastic. They also feature pockets on each side and a dark mesh lining which is very appropriate …

OUTERWEAR | ORLEBAR BROWN

White Setter Orlebar Brown Short, Sunglasses Orlebar Brown x Linda Farrow, long sleeve shirt with fading stripes and Orange vest by Orlebar Brown. _________________________________________________________________ I wore this outfit in New York past spring and I didn’t had the chance to photograph it properly, the America’s Cup kept me so busy. I originally didn’t pair like this, I wanted to wear it with khakis but last minute I decided to wear my old with OB Setter, which is, believe it or not, one of my favorite swim shorts ever, it’s been over 4 years I have it, it is no longer white, the mesh good ruined in the dryer but it is just one of those pieces you love so much and you refuse to give up. I need to get for sure a new pair but, you know, if you are anything like me, you’d rather invest in new pieces than repeat old ones, correct? Anyways, the t-shirt has this fading blue stripes pattern going on and I just thought it was so cool to pair with the orange …

WATCH YOUR BACK | XARIFA

I’ve been wearing Xarifa for over 3 years now, and it is one of the top brands for luxury swimwear. I once blogged about them and called these shorts “the most elegant swimwear” and I still stand by that affirmation. The fabric and cut of these shorts set them apart, even thou they have an elastic waistband these shorts will never look puffy and that’s always a concern when you are buying shorts with elastic. The model I’m wearing for this blog post is called Fatima, it has an optical print in which the eye plays a leading role, that characteristic symbol of the Middle East signifying the ability to “see through different eyes” on a voyage of discovery to unexplored worlds and realities… in my book, this evil eye print keeps you protected at the beach… from sharks and bad tan perhaps? *wink* Here a more detailed description: Superleggero®  Polyester shell Elastic waistband Comfortable mesh net lining Adjustable cotton drawstring Button fastening and fold-in back pocket Nickel free Italian hardware Care: Gentle cycle machine wash [30°C …

ONE OF A KIND | ORLEBAR BROWN

So… you know how much I like flamingos, right? and How much I like Orlebar Brown… My favorite short is a collaboration they did with my friend Gray Malin a few years ago, I treasure that short and wear it as much as I can. Now with Orlebar Brown‘s new service you can design your own swim shorts, with the image you want, the size and length you prefer. You can use a beach photo, it could also be a sketch, a pattern, a family memory photo or a beautiful landscape. You have endless options. One day visiting Renaissance Island, I came really early, the flamingos were sleeping on the floor, it was the first time I see them sleeping, I quietly got close to them and snap a few pictures of them sleeping, one of them, a female suddenly open the eye and I got this amazing picture I shared in the past on my Instagram. Now this beautiful unique picture became a short, a unique short. I am very proud of it, you …
