SANDALS ROYALE RESORT BARBADOS

If you come to Barbados, you will feel the omnipresence of Rihanna everywhere, she might not be there physically, but her spirit is all around or at least her song is playing every other song at every beach bar. It’s pure Rihanna bliss. Barbados is a real tropical island and bigger than I was expecting. I’m used to visiting Aruba and St. Barths, very petit island comparing to Barbados– charming but small. Barbados feels like a big rock, a country– I was lucky to have stayed 8 days on the island so I was really able to get to know the Island. I had the chance to drive around and discover beautiful corners like Bottom Bay, which I visited twice, one on my own and the second time I had to bring Moti so we could take pictures together. For the second part of my trip I was (super lucky) and excited to stay at Sandals, what made Barbados feel like a home away from home was the people I met there, especially the staff at Sandals Royale Resort. Staying …

ORLEBAR BROWN’s 10

Orlebar Brown is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year. I have been a loyal fan since the very beginning, If you have been following me since day one, then you have seen me sporting the brand on many of my Instagram posts. I must say I have more Orlebar Brown shorts in my closet than any other brand. My first pair ever is a Gray Malin collaboration. This pair alone has traveled with me all around the Caribbean. I would say that I really consider it to be a personal treasure and a family heirloom, my first born son will inherit these swim trunks. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Orlebar Brown for their celebration in Bermuda. The invitation came from the man himself, Adam Brown. After so many years admiring his work. It was truly such a thrill to meet the man person. He is a true innovator when it comes to designing swimwear for men. While in Bermuda we stayed at the Hamilton Princess, which is one of the best …

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 …
