WATCH YOUR BACK | XARIFA

I’ve been wearing Xarifa for over 3 years now, and it is one of the top brands for luxury swimwear. I once blogged about them and called these shorts “the most elegant swimwear” and I still stand by that affirmation. The fabric and cut of these shorts set them apart, even thou they have an elastic waistband these shorts will never look puffy and that’s always a concern when you are buying shorts with elastic. The model I’m wearing for this blog post is called Fatima, it has an optical print in which the eye plays a leading role, that characteristic symbol of the Middle East signifying the ability to “see through different eyes” on a voyage of discovery to unexplored worlds and realities… in my book, this evil eye print keeps you protected at the beach… from sharks and bad tan perhaps? *wink* Here a more detailed description: Superleggero®  Polyester shell Elastic waistband Comfortable mesh net lining Adjustable cotton drawstring Button fastening and fold-in back pocket Nickel free Italian hardware Care: Gentle cycle machine wash [30°C …

BEACH ESSENTIALS: WELCOME SUMMER 2015

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 …

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.
