Poolside preppy – Mr. Turk swimwear SS2017

For some reason I have a sudden eagerness to do some swimming lately, maybe it is because of the sun above my head that I almost feel that I am melting, or I simply find an excuse to ‘defrost’ my chic swimming trunk which was kept in the dark in my wardrobe since last summer, and just when I thought that I can finally get my little poolside fashion out for its first appearance by the pool this summer, somehow I guess it’s been kept way too long that sadly it no longer fits me anymore. Looking for a new and stylish pair of swimming trunk then becomes something on the top of my to-do list; Among the ones that could be found down to the prominent fashion shops has no longer stir up my interest anymore, I tended to look for something much unique, stylish of course, yet, having certain kind of liberating vibe that reflects the sophistication, summer chic, and of course, with beautiful color and design. When I came across the eye-catching swimwear collection by Mr. Turk, a stylish menswear brand that hails from California, the first thing that speaks to me is the ‘west coast preppy’ which to me is something refreshing that I would love to explore more.

Being an esteemed stylist and photographer, Mr. Jonathan Skow, the soul behind the brand Mr. Turk, has a pair of tasteful eyes and stylish aesthetic about fashion in his own vision, with his work has been appeared in numerous world renowned fashion magazines and adored by countless Hollywood celebrities, his swimwear collection for men has literally reflects his sense of style about Californian dapper, the west coast chic that exudes both the liberating and joyous masculinity, and the sophistication of American preppy with modernity and exquisite attention to details.

Like a stylish wanderlust in summer, the SS17 swimwear collection of Mr. Turk takes us to his travel journey, from the sun-shining Palm Spring to the exotic and tropical Cuba, a destination that filled with passion, exotic culture and arrays of vibrant colors and tropical spirit. Take a look with the floral print San Simeon Board Short, a beautiful turquoise with the joyous floral pattern, or the bright and cheerful Malibu Board Short, with its bright multi-color retro print which looks superbly stylish by the poolside contrasting the aquatic blue water. Or why not try something with some eccentricity? The pink Flamingos print Safari Board Shorts for example, not only it expresses your fashionable taste but the same time adding something playful and amusing at the same time.

Looking for something more understated? No problem, the monochromatic South Shore Swim Trunk could be a wonderful pick with its simple black & white color combination which looks timelessly elegant, thanks to the zig-zag stretch knit, such pattern design gives much of creativity vibe and luxury, especially for those who enjoys classic preppy style. Or simply something plain? Either a clean Kent Swim Trunk in crispy white with textured Zigzag, or a classic Jones Beach Swim Trunk in blue criss cross jacquard, both are timelessly stylish that takes you from the beach coast to the sea with much luxuriousness and comfort.

Welcome to the world of Californian preppy, and enjoy your summer by the poolside with some great style.
