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 …

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.

For the Caribbean Queens

At the beach, time is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the moment, plan by the tides and follow the sun. Vilebrequin women’s is a colorful and stylish collection of bikinis, board shorts, resort wear and accessories with Vilebrequin’s modern luxury aesthetic. What I found interesting and practical is that they sell the pieces separately, so you can choose a top from a size and then the bottom in the size that fits you best. How cool is that? Fabiola is wearing in the picture the Gingham seersucker top and the Gingham seersuck bottom. it’s a beautiful and very feminine bikini that is also comfortable and classic looking, to me it kinda has this pin-up kind of look that makes it so cool and timeless. Vilebrequin has many beautiful, fun and glamorous options for women, click here to browse their entire online catalogue and be the Caribbean Queen wherever you go!

The Perfect Blue Shirt

Resort wear is a year-round fashion season, and Vilebrequin has the perfect options in their ready-to-wear collections. From Saint Tropez to Aruba, Martinique and Thailand, to the Costa Brava in Spain, St. Barths and all the Caribbean Islands, resort wear popularity is growing quickly. It’s a style that signifies luxury, relaxation, and appreciation of nature, travel and holidays. I see this year-round fashion daily in the Caribbean from tourists all around the world. Americans, Europeans, South Americans, etc., once it starts getting cold on their side of the world they all go on vacay looking for the warmth of the Caribbean. From Swim-shorts, polos and linen shirts, to light tops and dresses for women, cruise wear is exclusive in its function and construction design. I chose from Vilebrequin’s new collection two beautiful shirts, a classic terry cotton polo in royal blue and a linen short sleeved shirt in blue. The terry is a classic, with its unique fabric texture, so comfortable and dressy at the same time, perfect to go to the beach or grab cocktails at night. What I like the most about this polo shirt is how fresh it is during the …

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. …
