VERSACE SWIMWEAR

Swim Briefs, Swim Shorts, Pajama Shirt by Versace _________________________________________________________________ Speedo season, or swimwear in general, is never over in the Caribbean. Here I am sporting my new favorite pair of swim briefs, yes, I know, I call speedos all my briefs, but is the force of habit. Burgundy is a fall color, in my opinion, if you wanna keep a little seasonal tone in your swimwear also this is the perfect piece. I always wear shorts to the beach and brief under, I like to sunbath in speedos, tan lines are very sexy in my opinion. Both pieces are from the newest collection and they’re available online . You can also visit a Versace boutique or Saks to get any of these pieces.    

AU NATUREL BY THE CARIBBEAN KING

    I remember when I was on the cover of Express Magazine back in December of 2014. In the interview I spoke about one of my plans for the future of possibly starting my own swimwear line. It wasn’t anything written in stone, but was just an idea I had. Finally, after a few months I decided to start the project, the first piece of the collection is a flesh colored swim brief . I drew inspiration from the idea of playing with sand colors and the playfulness and sexiness of the illusion of being “au naturel”, which is the name of this brief. The flesh colored items in clothing and shoes have been present in fashion in the last seasons but never in swimwear for obvious reasons.  Those reasons were the motivation that inspired me to take this direction. The design is a classic brief, not too small and not too big, just the classic speedo cut for men that are… let’s say, courageous, to wear a snug piece of swimwear. I’m very proud to say …

Bond, Pink Bond…

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.

Vilebrequin’s Starlet shorts

I could write about the specs of a swim trunk or instead, I could tell you how great they are in simple words.  First of all, they are a little shorter than the usual classic Moorea, it’s a modern twist that is on-trend right now and looks good and sexy and even thou The Master, that’s how these shorts are called, has been since 1996, these kind of short shorts have become more popular in the past 5 years.  Everyday, men are exploring new territories in fashion and these short shorts are the best example. I mean, if you have great legs why not show them off a little? It is always great to have variety in your closet, if you already have a Moorea, this pair would be a great addition to your collection. They feature really masculine colors and a nautical theme pattern. From the new collection these are my favorites, the girl working in the Vilebrequin store at the Renaissance Mall in Aruba showed them to me the minute I told her I was looking for new shorts. I guess everybody …

Arthur Ios by Bluemint

Here we have the Arthur IOS by Bluemint, a current take on a traditional paisley with soft lines and delicate colors. Paisley is been on trend for a couple of years now. I love the pink because when you are really tanned, after a few days at the beach, this shorts pop and they look amazing when you have a nice color in your skin, if you are dark skinned then this are perfect for you no matter what. Arthur is their signature swim short, defined by a relaxed construction and its special soft touch. With all its hip patterns, 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 You can by this shorts clicking here!  Remember to like my facebook page!
