Dive into your best incarnation with a little help from art and the endless blue of the Greek summer.
Simple is best, as we believe here in IIWT, and so we salute this extremely hot July with a nice n’ easy combo that takes little effort but tons of style credits to pull off. Also, as a special treat, we offer some tips on men’s skincare. Yes dad, such a thing exists and it’s a lifesaver.
THE SPEEDMASTER “GREY SIDE OF THE MOON” BY OMEGA SETS THE PACE FOR GREAT, BEACHSIDE STYLE.
1.Terrycloth is probably the best invention in menswear since the beginning of time. It is soft, it looks great and it is the best partner you can have on a hot and wet day by the sea. Find one that matches the darker hues of the rest of your beach outfit and you will have made a fascinating style point.
2.OMEGA watches have the tendency to create a whole “James Bond” aura around them, and this baby right here is subtle enough to leave the leading part to another Bond staple, the Orlebar Brown swimsuit. 3.Yes, well, the swimsuit. OB has the best quality you will find and the brand very often surprises us with amazing images that are depicted on its perfectly tailored canvas. This time we couldn’t help but choose this great number by our favorite, on of the finest Greek photographers, Marina Vernicos. Great art can inspire great fashion, indeed.

Running from meeting to meeting and from the office to the beach for a quick dive, your skin deals with all kinds of stress every day. SHISEIDO MEN is skincare, simplified. A man’s skin has its own unique problems and vulnerabilities. Daily shaving damages it, and excess sebum causes stickiness. Then, the skin has to deal with external factors such as dryness, UV rays, and pollution, compounding the problems caused by fatigue, lack of sleep, and unbalanced diet and mental stress. Without daily skincare, your skin has to do all the recovery work on its own, and its energy reserves are often low. As a result, a man’s skin is vulnerable to damage, and prone to problems. But few men have the time for a complex skincare regime.
Customise your skincare program for your needs and preferences with Shiseido Men.
