FASHION AND CHAMPAGNE

The best champagne, some of my favorite pieces from Dolce& Gabbana and Solid and Striped… I spent the day at the Renaissance Island, sunbathing, having fun and specially relaxing in the new private Cabanas. You have to see them, the Renaissance Island has never looked better. Hope you enjoy the post and click on your favorite image to get details of what I’m wearing.

THE CHINESE PALACE OF PALERMO / DolceGabbana

Hoodie, shorts, shoes and swim briefs by DolceGabbana _________________________________________________________________ The Chinese Palace in Palermo, Sicily, is one of the largest and most iconic Chinese-style residences built during the Baroque and Rococo periods. This was the inspiration for the newest Spring Summer collection available now on stores. I was lucky to get my hands on this gorgeous hoodie and matching shoes. Mixing patterns is an art, this runway look is a showstopper. The swim briefs, well… you know me, I’m always ready to jump in the water. You can see more of this collection clicking here. Some of these pieces, like the hoodie I’m wearing are available at the DolceGabbana boutique located at the Renaissance Mall. Pictures by the talented Enrique Balestrini. Location: The Beautiful Renaissance Marina tower. Add me on snapchat: Christianbendek.      

The Black Crown | Dolce&Gabbana

  T-shirt from the new Dolce&Gabbana’s Crowns and Bees collection, Dark Denim Jeans by Dolce&Gabbana, Iphone Case Dolce&Gabbana new capsule collection inspired in Aruba, Sunglasses by Dolce&Gabbana and  Marlin espadrilles by Bachelor Shoes. _________________________________________________________________ How could I not be a little over obsessed with the new Fall/Winter Collection from Dolce&Gabbana? There are Crowns everywhere! But this time I choose this beautiful dark blue t-shirt with a black velvety pattern where you can see the Crown. I was obsessed the minute I saw it. I always like those pieces that make you take a second look, you know? Interesting pieces. I paired the T with darn denim Jeans and to give it some color I added my new red Espadrilles, the marlin adds it a little nautical theme that fits summer and Aruba on point. The sunglasases… are you really surprised I picked tortoise? No, you are not haha. The case I blogged about a few days ago is finally in my hands, it is colorful and it;’s about Aruba, what’s not to like? the flamingos from the Renaissance Island …

MY CHANCHAN AT THE RENAISSANCE ISLAND

Swimshorts by Chan Chan, Claico Vent in Navy Panama Hat by Artesano, watch by Jolli, sunglasses by Alfred Kerbs, lokai bracelet. _______________________________________________________________ I think I have a thing for ropes… anyways, a new day a new swim-short, this pair is a color blocking model by Chanchan which is a funny name, it means buttocks in Papiamento… But in a cute way. These shorts are very comfortable, bro like… affordable. This indigo Panama hat by Artesano jumped at me when I was pairing this outfit and I think it looks so good. I like the gray, magenta and Indigo…. The watch also pops, this is a very colorful outfit yet is not a crazy one. I think this is one of my favorite outfits this summer… and it happened in a rush, I wasn’t planning to do it. The background is the beautiful Renaissance Island, yes… that’s the island with the flamingos, you have to stay at The Renaissance Aruba Hotel and Casino in order to access to the island. Let me know if you like this outfit. I …

CROWNS FOR THE KING | DOLCE&GABBANNA FALL-WINTER 15-16

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. Universally recognized symbols in their own right become fashionable icons for the season, and beyond.” If you are in Aruba make sure you visit the Dolce&Gabbana store located at the Renaissance Mall, maybe we can go shopping together next time.

FLORAL SPORT COAT

Floral linen-cotton sport coat by Ralph Lauren, 3 buttons white polo by Ralph Lauren, white jeans by Ralph Lauren, shoes by Ralph Lauren, watch by Nixon and sunglasses by Komono. ________________________________________________________________ When you buy a jacket like this, a statement piece for sure, you have to create the outfit around it. I do believe in letting such a gorgeous piece like this shine on its own without any distractions. 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!

We never go out of style | Ralph Lauren

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 …
