After fashion week comes Market week, like Project, Capsule and Liberty Fairs located in the Javitz Center in NYC. Market week is essentially where buyers of some of the biggest and major retailers from all over the world meet and shop brands’ new SS’18 collections. This season NYFW:Mens did a small pop-up where they showcased a few presentations featuring brands like Osklen, Band of Outsiders and more. Additionally, Frenzy partnered with Capsule + Liberty Fairs to drop an exclusive item from the handful of designers that were showing during these days via their App, redefining the see now, buy now model.

Back in Bermuda, and yes, many assume I live here now , and I’m not mad about it. This time I’m visiting the beautiful island for the 35th Annual America’s Cup presented by Louis Vuitton.
This is my second time at the America’s cup, third time in Bermuda (this year, I’m basically Bermudian.) We got to watch the semi-finals boat-side where New Zealand soared, and eventually won the title this past weekend. For the occasion I wore some of my favorite pieces from the Louis Vuitton’s America’s Cup collection.
The first night we arrived we had an opening dinner at the government house where we wined and dined along side the CEO of LV, Michael Burke, and some bermudian’s politicians.
I called the Princess Hamilton my home for the weekend, one of my favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed at, which also has a really good restaurant called Marcus.
In between the races we hit the beautiful beaches, particularly The Hamilton’s beach which is a short 10 minute ride from the hotel.
Orange Jack Swim Trunks, Yellow Setter Swim Trunks, Sammy Toweling Shirt –Orlebar Brown
This year marks the 10 year anniversary for the British swimwear brand, Orlebar Brown. To celebrate the new summer collection, OB Invited me to try out the new threads in sunny Bermuda. This was my second time visiting the small-yet-beatufiul island.
My first time I was exposed to Orlebar Brown was about 4 years ago in Project Las Vegas where I had the chance to customize a bespoke pair which I own till today! And, I’m not just saying this, but as a skinny guy that likes clothing fitted, I’ve never found a pair of swim trunks that fit me as well as OB.
The new collection features a new style called The “Jack,” a sporty rendition of the classic Bull Dog, see the orange trunks above, which is made out of a sporty and super lightweight nylon.
Orlebar Brown is considered the Ferraris and Bentleys of Swimwear. Their sartorial approach to swimwear set them a part from the rest of the market. They recently launched a collaboration with Beautiful Destinations and DJ Sam Feldt.
