BACK IN BERMUDA | Louis Vuitton

This time I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Island of Bermuda with Louis Vuitton to check out the semi-finals of the America’s Cup. We checked out the races boat-side On board of the gorgeous Spirit of Bermuda. Joining me and the LV team were some of my dear friends, in addition to new ones. We sipped on some champagne while enjoying the oldest race in history and one of the most prestigious events in the world.

Taking in consideration the shirt has a very bright and eye catchy print I decided to pair it with a more toned down bottom, so I went for a more light blue bermuda short with an equally relaxed silhouette, made of cotton. It’s a perfect basic that you can pair with anything and everything, it is …

Beach Buddies

A towel is a beach essential, you can use it for drying off after enjoying yourself in the water, or t lie on on the sand. Beach Towels can be useful while changing clothes at the beach, and for wiping sand from your body when you are ready to go back to the hotel or home. To do all that you need a big, durable and reliable towel. Meet Vilebrequin‘s Sieste Towel, it’s a big, soft and absorbent.
