Thursday morning, while I’m in between jobs for weeks now (in a good way) for the first time after long months of extreme summer here in Dubai I finally made it to my favorite Mamzar beach where the water is smooth as silk and quiet like a lake. (Yah, I know this beach is unusual, not for surfers but good for swimming lapses and sun worshippers. FYI, Mamzar beach shoreline is manmade. Oh yeh!) So there I went by 8am (because it opens to public by that time) then left after 2 hours to save my self from skin cancer.

I went to shop for a new swim shorts at River Island the night before and there I almost hoard those items on sale. Not proud but I’m a compulsive shopper. Back to River Island, I found great collection of printed swim short that are similar from my another favorite online store Mr Porter.

Short swimming shorts are the trends for men specially the printed designs mostly vintage graphics or patterned.

Here are some collection from Mr Porter:

Dominic Cooper

“Blue is a fail-safe colour when it comes to swim shorts, (close-fitting but not tight; short but not indecent) doesn’t hurt matters either”

Cristiano Ronaldo

Rafael Nadal

Mr. Andrea Pirlo


ORLEBAR BROWN; Setter Short-Length Printed Swim Shorts, £149

Here are few collection form River Island:

White car print swim shorts with drawstring waist, £25.00

Red stripe swim shorts with drawstring waist and small anchor print, £20.00

White block stripe swim shorts with drawstring waist, £25.00

My short swim shorts doesn’t affect my swimming strokes at all, its perfect.

Pull & Bear canvas barrel bag is also perfect for beach.

Ripped off sleeves tops from Topman and Patterned short from River Island to complete my get-up.
