Kids, summer is around the corner, you need to gear up with new swimwear for the most active and fun season of the year! Soo, this year, choosing from the big selection Bluemint has to offer I picked the Arthur Blue Camo. Why? Camo’s been in trend for a while now and this color variation in blue is brilliant. It’s a fun and modern print, keeping it masculine with a classic cut. (Not too long, not too short). This is a great choice and they look amazing in pictures and if you know me a little, you know I love that! DETAILS Arthur is their signature swim short, defined by a relaxed construction and its special soft touch. The Arthur hangs around with you from the beach until the sunset lounge. – Mid length short – Regular fit – Elastic waist band – Side and back pockets – Quick drying and peach touch fabric – Bespoke Italian fabrics – Sizes S-M-L-XL-XXL-XXXL To accesorice this look I’m wearing BLUEMINT’s Blithe Aviator sunglasses. Made in Italy, these sunglasses are a …

Seagale, the Pro Shorts.

So… Seagale came with these shorts, 2 in 1 they call it. Technical details can be found on their website but right now I will tell you why you need a pair of shorts. They’re basically a speedo and a short assembled together around the waistband resulting in a genius combination. Some people hate the mesh lining because it causes irritation, for instance a few friends I know cut and mutilate a perfectly fine pair of short because they don’t like the lining. Seagale however are the perfect solution, you could even say they feel like second skin, they keep not only everything in place but give you the certainty your body is protected and you can do virtually anything you imagine. These shorts are the PRO choice for beach goers, outdoor enthusiast, water sports aficionados or any type of sport for that matter, they can transition from casual day wear with a nice shirt also, I even picture them in a working environment. For a person like me that always wear speedos under my …

Poche Plage

So… Poche Plage is an italian brand that I recently found on instagram. I liked their models but couldn’t really tell much by the pictures, I have a pair now and all I can say is: WOW! Why WOW? They are flattering shorts that fit your body and look good in every possible way, specially in the back for me, they really have a great design, they are short and modern looking, colorful, with great patterns that are whimsical, masculine and attractive to the eye. The fabric is great, the long cord that ties the waist is really something that adds to the design making it more fun and playful. I would say: Get a pair! … and they’re made in Italy, you know is good. Learn more about this brand here, you can also follow them on instagram here and you can follow me clicking here!

The Yellow Floral Surf Trunk by Bather

Bather is a brand I discovered while browsing on Instagram, you all know how I love to do that. The shorts are made in Canada and that’s one of the things I like the most about them, it is the first thing I tell people when they ask where they are from. It’s an unexpected answer!    Like any great pair of trunks the drying process after a good swim is really quick, the fabric is 100% nylon and it has a shine to it and sort of a plastic feel in a good way. It is soft yet it keeps its shape at all times. No pockets on the sides, just one in the back… this is great and I will tell you why: I won’t drown my iPhone, like it has happened in the past.   This particular pair, the yellow floral, is bright and colorful, if you ask me it has a retro feel, like from the 70s yet it feels current. The price is quite reasonable and the quality of the product is top of the …
