Hello Summer, ByeBye Hipster Beards

men1

This may come as a shock to you, but it’s time to ditch those Viking beards and Magnum moustaches guys. According to the Guardian “hipster” beards are over and I couldn’t agree more. So go to your barber and get a shave, you’re not Roald Dahl’s Mr. Twit. On the fashion part, you can keep your fixed gear bike, your florals, your skinnies, your denim jacket, your Ray Ban, your slimfit shirts and your Vans. And as I love tattoos, inked sleeves are always a good idea.

Hello Summer; Beach Essentials

Summer has started, and hopefully you will spend a lot of time with your feet in the sand. It’s a simple list that everybody knows, but just in case here are my six beach essentials, besides your bikini offcourse.

A white beach tunic, cool sunnies, a large beach bag, a quick-dry hammam towel, Havaianas, – since they are the coolest and last for ages – and finally loads of sunscreen.

Now there is a lot to be said about sunscreen, and ever since I’ve been diagnosed with fructose intolerance, cremes are giving me outbreaks, red spots or rashes. So I’ve tried to find a sunscreen which doesn’t contain alcohol, parabens, fruits or perfume and came up with La Roche Posay, which is especially developed for – food intolerance – sensitive skin. The Anthelios sunscreen range goes from SPF30 to SPF50 and is only available at your local apothecary.

Not only is Jane Birkin a French singer, actress, former wife to Serge Gainsbourg and mother of style icons Kate Barry, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon. She is also a fashion icon herself, who influenced generations of women and designers such as Isabel Marant with her sixties boho chic style. Add some Birkin Summer vibes to your own wardrobe with a (vintage) embroidered blouse and add contrast to the soft hippie look with leather pants or shorts.
