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 …

SUMMER ALL YEAR LONG

Vilebrequin, the most iconic swimwear brand to date, was created in 1971 in Saint Tropez by Fred Prysquel. The name Vilebrequin, which means “crankshaft”, gets its name from the creator’s passion for cars.The pronunciation is a bit tricky if you don’t know a little french, it goes something like: Vil-bre-ken. Back in the 70s the swim briefs were the popular style, Fred Prysquel revolutionized the swimwear fashion designing colorful shorts made out of spinnaker canvas and a cut inspired by surfer’s trunks. It quickly became popular on the beaches of Saint Tropez and from there to the world. With three collections a year; Spring – Summer, High-Summer – Autumn, over 100 colors, patterns and prints to choose from. It is clear why Vilebrequin is on top of the game in luxury swimwear. In the beautiful Caribbean, we enjoy the easy summer weather permanently and swim-shorts are like a second skin to me. This week I’m proud to partner with Vilebrequin and show you my favorite pieces from the new collection and enjoy together this “Summer All year Long” in the Caribbean Sea. …

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!
