Our top 4: Summer Essentials

A-dam Underwear – Swimwear

Summer has really started now and beaches are filled with people enjoying the lovely weather. The Canals in Amsterdam are busy with boats finding their way through the city and people in swimwear indulge their skin with the first summer sun. On board we find lots of drinks and food to enjoy the day delightfully, like salmon sandwiches paired with a great chardonnay. To be able to enjoy such days in style, a cool and distinctive swimsuit is a necessity. A-dam Underwear, famous for its stylish, comfortable, durable and environmental-friendly underwear now has revealed its first swimwear collection, made from 100% recycled polyester. Rich blue with soft pink polkadots and forest green with colourful rocket icelollipops are what you can expect. Get these unique swimming pants here!

YVRA

The scent of a lifetime. Yvo van Regteren Altena (YVRA) is a Dutch lifestyle-journalist and author of several books. He is specialised in luxury consumer goods, from bespoke suits and shoes, to the finest perfumes. He has been a journalist for 25 years and has encountered hundreds of influential people in the luxury fashion and perfume business. Because of his broad experience and knowledge of the industry, he woke up one day with the desire to create his own and so he did. And it didn’t become only one scent, but Yvo came up with two magic perfumes, the l’essence de l’essence in 2015 and the l’essence de présence in 2017. The first is a woody scent and hints at the transparency of classic eau the colognes but with more pizzazz, aromatic drive and long-lasting capacity. The second shares its predecessor’s elegance, with a warmer, more potent, mysterious undertone of oriental wood. Both scents are long-lasting but not overwhelming, they are well-balanced, sophisticated, ideal to wear in the summer and fitting in any occasion. Find YVRA here.
