Currently in the mens swimwear world, there are many brands doing their own take on the tailored finish, incorporating the side adjusters you tend to get on a bespoke pair of trousers. Now don’t get me wrong, I love this detail and finish, possessing quite a few like it myself, however when I became aware of Xarifa and their sea rope incorporating draw string shorts, I was instantly captivated by the exciting nautical details this brand had to offer.
If like me you are beginning to organise and prep your wardrobe for summer or perhaps getting yourself festival ready, then there are few key pieces you are certainly going to need in order to complete it. A brand which I would definitely look to for this is The Kooples.
The french brand have released their Spring/Summer 2017 Sunrise collection which just oozes that laid back, summer breeze, 1960’s festival vibe. Impactful block prints, a military style over shirt and hippy style paisley patterns mixed with rock-god ripped jeans truly make for the ideal festival outfits. There is even some decorative little skull bracelets and a felt hat to finish it off. To help ease your mind a little because there is a lot of excellent pieces on The Kooples website, I’ve Selected two essentials which you just can’t miss out on.
When we think of Sweden, iconic brands such as Volvo, Ikea and fashion powerhouse H&M spring to mind. Now I’am very happy to say there is a new one to add to this list, one which features sleek Scandinavian lines and a highly personal touch. This brand is BOOM watches.
