I am very proud to introduce the ‘Caribbean King’ Special Edition Pazzi sunglasses, designed by Silvio Vasconi in collaboration with me. The Caribbean King Special Edition Pazzi sunglasses are the perfect accessories for life in the Caribbean. I’m a huge fan of tortoiseshell eyewear, so when Silvio Vasconi approached me with this collaboration idea, I knew that his Special Edition ‘Pazzi’ frames would be a bright, beautiful tortoiseshell style, with rich, brown lenses. With their distinctive ‘Pazzi’ wayfarer shape, The Caribbean King Special Edition Pazzi frames suit both male and female wearers. The beautiful tortoiseshell Italian acetate is hand-finished for a stunning glossy finish, and the anti-reflective coating on the back of the CR39 lenses provides a striking and distinctive flash of colour. The ‘Caribbean King’ logo is inscribed on to the inside of the left temple, proving the authenticity of this Special Edition Silvio Vasconi frame. If you are in Aruba you can buy them exclusively at Sun Specs located at Palm Beach Plaza. Also you can buy them online clicking here.
Crown print quilted bomber jacket by Dolce&Gabbana, Ripped Gold 14 fit denim with crown and bee embroidery jeans by @ Dolce&Gabbana, Hand Bag by @dolce&Gabanna, Neo Noir Sunglasses by Le Specs, Watch by Nixon. __________________________________________________________________ What a pleasant surprise to see crowns and also bees in the newest collection of Dolce&Gabbana, crowns fit for a king of course *laughs*. “Crowns have long been a heraldic symbol of royalty, courage and power and along with the industrious, loyal and kind icon of the bee, these two emblems have been unified and adopted as a leitmotif of the Dolce&Gabbana in the Fall Winter 2015-16 menswear collection. In their familiar concept of high/low, Dolce&Gabbana transpose these age-old symbols of human virtue onto shirts, embroidered tailoring and accessories.

I’m wearing white polo shirt, white jeans and even white shoes to let the jacket take the center of attention. I’m head to toe in Ralph Lauren, if you’re in Aruba or you are planning to visit make sure you go to the Renaissance Mall and visit the Ralph Lauren store… you might see me there, we can shop together!
If any of you guys live in Aruba, Panamá, Venezuela or the city of Miami you can find me in the new edition of Tendencia Magazine. I did a fashion editorial with them wearing Ralph Lauren in the beautiful Renaissance Island.
So… Sometimes you are wearing a light denim shirt and white shorts and you feel like blank canvas; that’s when you need to accessorize to give color and style to your outfit. This blog post contains 3 of my new favorite accessories I’m wearing this summer.
So… Sauvage is a luxury swimwear brand making beautiful, fun and comfortable swim wear for him and her in San Diego, California since 1985.
So, i’ve been forced to give up the coffee, not an easy thing, specially if you started drinking coffee at age 5, my mom was and is addicted to coffee and me and my siblings we all grew up drinking coffee…. But this is not a coffee article, it is a teami article… So, I just started drinking tea, mainly because my coffee machine is broke… Im an english breakfast man myself, on the sweet side, not to crazy with weird flavors… I had the chance to talk with the people of teami and try their products. I got the profit tea and the energy one, which i thought it was great since i started training again. The tea tastes great, I was actually really surprised, wasn’t expecting to like it so much but I do and it feels fresh and natural… I mean, of course it is natural but you can actually see the leaves and see how the whole infusion is made in your plastic tumbler. You really feel you are drinking a natural, organic …
So… Here’s this beautiful pink ombré shirt paired with a royal blue blazer and jeans. I fell in love with the shirt the minute I saw it at Ralph Lauren and then I decided to create an outfit around it. My head works like this: That beautiful pink shirt I had to tone it down with a masculine blue jacket, I know, i know..colors have no gender, but I love the contrast and then to make it more casual I chose a pair of Ralph Lauren jeans from their new collection. All pieces are from their new summer collection, included the gorgeous leather Duffel bag, an ideal companion for the frequent traveler. You can fit almost anything in there and it smells so goooood. The haze sunglasses, called Raze in Electric Blue are a statement piece, the blue on the top of the lens gives them this unique look setting them apart from regular aviators. The watermelon Lecimes case, as I’m sure you know it by now is my favorite case this season.
Classic pieces never go out of style, that’s why this blog posts is featuring only Ralph Lauren items that you can buy and wear forever or as long as they fit you. *laughs* The Green Regent Shirt has been crafted from cotton poplin, it’s a slim-fitting, striped dress shirt featuring a medium-spread Regent collar and Ralph Lauren’s signature embroidered pony. The herringbone blazer is rendered in a lightweight blend of linen and silk, with leather accents and elbow patches for a rustic inspiration. They look great together, the earth colors complement each other very well, they look fresh, young and casual together. The white chino pants are rafted from smooth cotton, this essential pant is treated with pigment dyes to achieve a vintage look and features a straight-leg silhouette. For the belt I picked a classic navy themed belt with a vibrant pattern of nautical flags. The outfit is complete now, I picked a light color bottom to give it a resort/cruise look appropriate for the caribbean. I hope you liked this outfit I picked from the new Ralph Lauren collection available in the store located at the Renaissance Mall …
For this summer outfit you need these beautiful pieces I always like statement pieces, I mean, you know me… and this Ralph Lauren Terry hoodie is one! Made of cotton, perfect for early morning walks by the beach or late night strolls, this hoodie has a floral print toned down with a dark blue to give it a masculine touch, once again I paired a colorful piece with a solid bottom, in this case a relaxed fit Ralph Lauren bermuda short that goes well with anything. The sunglasses are a collaboration I did with Silvio Vasconi and I will be giving away 2 pairs this summer to two lucky followers, be pending! Now, the flamingos… for the flamingos you better visit Aruba and stay at the Renaissance Hotel. Chances you see me around snapping pictures in swimwear are high.. or shopping at the Mall. Thank you Ed Perdomo for the pic and Tendencia Magazine
Hello everyone! These are a few of my must have pieces this summer. Lets start with the shorts… or better yet, the towel… It’s Gray Malin’s first towel and like everything he does it’s just pure fun luxury and the price is not crazy. better hurry get yours since it’s almost sold out. I blogged about it a few days before but this piece is a MUST-HAVE, not only is big, and soft and absorbent BUT it photographs beautifully, and if you are a picture freak like me… YOU NEED IT! The shorts I got them last december, they’re Orlebar Brown’s signature Bulldog short in Collaboration with Gray Malin… yes, I love all things Gray Malin! It’s an US exclusive limited edition. What can I say about OB that I haven’t said before? They’re tailored, modern and fun. Now, the Marky Tortoise sunglasses are from Alfred Kerbs, it was a nice surprise… They’re completely different from what I use to wear. People’s reaction is always positive to the frame and I think personally that they’re a statement …
So… I got this fouta, yeah, that’s the “towel” :p and thanks to my friends at Ottoiio I was inspired to do this look. What do you think? I call it “Boho King”. I paired this outfit with different pieces from different brands. The Blue linen shirt by Onia is on top of my Algae Miami t-shirt. I think the classic look from the blue shirt keeps the whole outfit from being too “hippy”… let’s put it like that. Now, the breezy and pleasant printed white tee is soft and runs oversized. When I saw it I thought of some kind of palm trees Pathenon, it’s kind of greek/tropical, the white on white, you know what I mean? I like when a piece of clothing makes you have to give a second look to get the graphic. This Tee is perfect. Algae have a lot of different shirts and accessories, you should definitely check them out.
So… look at this beautiful and exotic leather case by Ullu. Yes, exotic… made of ostrich leather, I have to say I am becoming obsessed with iphone cases and at the moment this is my favorite, it’s unique, apart. I get a lot of reactions from them, specially when I mention is made of ostrich leather. I do have a small collection of cases from Ullu, one made of grain leather, another made of suede; they’re all exquisite, elegant and modern. You should definitely visit their website and get a case, they have different colors, materials, prints and cases for different devices. I will be posting on my instagram during this summer all the models I have, so keep an eye on them! Follow Ullu on instagram!
I’ve always been a fan of Late Night Alumni, their sound is perfect for a beach day, lounging, cocktails. This album is here just in time for summer 2015. Listen to it. I love it.
These oversized towel by Gray Malin, my favorite photographer if you don’t know by now, are the must-have item of the summer. What’s spcial about them? Well, besides featuring Gray Malin’s artwork, these towels are bigger than your usual beach towel, So you have an idea, they’re bigger than a twin size bed (42″ x 74″), that means, a man like me (6’3″) fits on it comfortably and I can also have some company 🙂 They feature the beautiful and glamorous beaches of St. Tropez and they’re a limited edition, so I suggest you get them now! Click here to learn more about this towels! Follow Gray Malin on Instagram and here to follow me just in case you haven’t done it already :p
So, I went dressed head to toe in Ralph Lauren, finally lol, to the Soul Beach fest last weekend. It was fun, seeing Trey Songz and Estelle live was such a treat. Now, what to wear to a festival at the beach in Aruba or any other location in summer time? Well, I choose a few confortable and classic pieces.
You know, quoting Air Supply; “Just when I thought I was over you..” Ralph Lauren adds these pants to their new summer collection… I mean, I did floral/print pants a while back, I’m talking 2012 when it was a new thing and I thought it was interesting and fun to spice it up by wearing these pants, then I got a new pair in 2013 because there were more options in different stores and then the last was last December, after that one I said to myself – This pair is the last pair I buy… Until I saw these. Do I need to go on detail and describe them? I don’t think so… just look at them. Enjoy. Floral Poplin Eaton Pant Crafted in Italy from crisp cotton poplin, our floral Eaton pant is tailored for a modern, slim-leg silhouette…and a showstopper!
I have to say when I got this pair of Pink Bonds by Bluemint I was really impressed with the cut and the tailored fit. It is for sure their more refined and stylish short yet. The sophisticated look, the modern cut for those who don’t like the old classic elastic waistband and the price are the three things that stand out for me as swimwear collector. In short: They look great, the fit is flattering, not baggy or puffy, the finishing is impeccable, they’re short but not not crazy short, and the quality of their products is always the best, not only the fabric but the zippers and the lining. This are a must have. I’ve been following Bluemint for over a year now and I am very happy to see how they’re evolving, becoming a big name in the swimwear game. You can buy this shorts clicking here!
