THE SWIMWEAR INFLUENCERS LOVE

Posted by BENIBECA Swimwear on

 

The swimwear influencers love. They follow the trends and trends follow them. They are the fashion gurus. The guides of style, elegance and modernism. The personal assessors to large communities established around their charismatic and endearing personalities. We love them, and they love Benibeca.

These are some of the influencers that choose Benibeca when hot summer…or cold winter… comes. Find out who they are!

MARCOS SOLER (@marcossoler)

The Instagram account of this young Valencian, that at the moment counts over 60K followers, is a colorful harmony of fashion, style, traveling and above all, good taste. And among all his looks, you can see our Lokori model, whose white, reddish and turquoise shades combine perfectly with the chromatic palette of his whole account. If you’re lucky and in summer you get just as tanned as Marcos, then you will rock this model!

MANUEL ORDOVAS (@mordovas)

He is one of the most influential Spanish fashion bloggers and photographers. He’s got over 45K followers on Instagram, he collaborates with magazines as renown as the famous GQ, and he attends the most important international Fashion Weeks. His profile is a reflection of his multi-faced style, his motivating and charismatic nature, his professionality, and his passion for lifestyle, sport and healthy living. And of course, his love for high quality and exotic patterned swimwear, perfect for an ocean-vibe getaway from time to time. Our Bambara model fits him really well, doesn’t it?

ARTUR DAINESE (@arturdainese)

When we talk about the swimwear influencers love, we need to mention Artur Dainese, a real estate agent and professional model from Ukraine, who lives in Milan and delights over 40K followers with his hot daring looks. He puts a lot of effort and dedication to his appearance, style and photographs and his profile reflects an adventurous ocean vibe. Artur adores short-length swimwear that allows him to show off tanned legs in summer, and that’s why he loves our shortest trunks collection. Our Soul model, made of a soft pinkish shade, creates a really nice contrast against his skin, right?

JUAN JESÚS REYES (@jjsreyes)

Juan Jesús Reyes is a model, DJ and fashion blogger – with over 42K followers – that we share a deeper connection with: apart from our love for trends and garments, he is from Seville, just like us! Besides showing an utter appreciation for one of the most beautiful and aesthetically inspiring cities in the world, he also adores cosmopolitan, informal and modern looks. And for beach or relax-on-a-terrace days, the swimwear this influencer loves is our Lokori model. Its light tones contrast on their own on his always tanned skin, but if you add a white T-shirt to the look, the final result is just fantastic!

NACHO YANES (@nachoyanes88)

This young business consultant has managed to create an over 56K followers community on Instagram, composed by people completely engaged with his content and looking forward to seeing his daily posts. Nacho generally opts for more sophisticated, formal and elegant looks, with a casual touch. Stylish combinations with little accessories that reflect his personality. That’s why when it comes to choosing his swimwear, this influencer has selected one of our most refined models, with buttons and a zipper, from our Ready to Swim & Wear collection. Doesn’t he look handsome in our Zulu model?

PAGOA LARENA (@pagoa)

Sophistication, elegance and luxury. These are the characteristics that his 15K followers account features. He plays with the contrast between modern urban looks and beachy styles, while he sails the world in a yacht or visits dreamlike beaches. From Ibiza to the Maldives, this influencer pleases his audience with spectacular images and his best swimwear combinations. Our Amhara model fits him really well!

ALEKSI LEPPINEN (@aleksileppinen)

But swimwear is not just for summer, and surely, not just for going to the beach. Aleksi knows it better than anyone. This young Finnish influencer, who’s got around 20K followers, shows off an adventurous spirit and his willingness to constantly challenge himself and the world. Taking a bath in almost frozen water? Why not? Jumping into the pool with a white snow and glacier background? Of course! And when it comes to the swimwear this influencer loves, Benibeca is always there, accompanying him on his life trips. A destination he adores is the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, the best healing spa in the world. And of course, to be up to the occasion, his ideal companion was our Azande model!

HOW TO COMBINE YOUR SWIMWEAR

Posted by BENIBECA Swimwear on

How to combine your swimwear. It may be a question many of you face in the modern scenario where swimming shorts are not just for jumping into the pool or swimming in the ocean anymore. The rules of the game have changed, and therefore, our conception too. Don’t use your Benibeca shorts only when you’re going on a beach trip. Be daring, keep up with trends, and create an unconventional street style look!

Our “Ready to swim & wear” collection was specifically created for this purpose. The elegant design of these shorts, provided with a zip fastener, turns them into your perfect ally for hot summery days, anywhere you go.  How to combine your swimwear had never been so easy. Depending on the complements and accessories you choose, you’ll get a more casual or formal look.

 

Nautical elegance

If you’re having dinner with your partner, your coworkers or your friends, and you’re going to your favorite restaurant and you want a sophisticated look that is not too much, combine one of our plain classic models, like Navy, with a traditional white shirt. Give it an ocean-like elegant vibe by adding a pair of nautical shoes, like these suede blue ones by Sebago, available at El Corte Inglés. And if afterwards you feel like going for a seashore walk, and you get eager to jump into the water… no problem, remember you’re wearing your swim shorts!

Casual white

If you like white but you don’t want to look that serious, try a more informal T-shirt, and combine it with one of our exotic prints, like Jandinga, Makula or Orowana. You’ll look stylish and casual at the same time.

Contrasting colors

 If you’re thinking about how to combine your swimwear in a more daring way, try mixing up contrasting or complementary colors. Black and white are not the only shades that fit everything. Put on a purple or wine-colored T-shirt and one of our blueish or greenish shorts, like the Bulu or Timbi models. If the combination is just too much for you, then ease it up using a light pale pink instead of purple.

Unconventional black

Black is obviously everyone’s best ally when it comes to being fashionable, no matter what kind of vibe you’re going for. If you want something different, try combining our shorts with a long-sleeve black plain T-shirt, perfect for cool Summer nights close to the ocean. You can get a really unconventional and comfortable look. If you don’t know which model to choose, try one that combines a dark and a light color, which will contrast perfectly with the black shade of the T-shirt. Our Chenche model would be perfect for the occasion.

Red vibes

When you want to know how to combine your swimear, think of red as your best friend or your secret wildcard. It’s such a universal color pretty much everyone loves it. You can combine a red shirt with one of our plain shorts, preferably in a contrasting shade, like yellow or mustard color. Oorun would fit your combination perfectly. Otherwise, we advise you to choose a pair of printed shorts with a design that includes little touches of red, like Pombo or Chilumba. What you can never do is wear red shorts with a red shirt. Your outfit would look way too heavy and none of the pieces would actually stand out.

Other styles

Oh, and of course, the fact that we have a specific collection of shorts “ready to swim & wear”, doesn’t mean you can’t create yourself a stunning street-style look with any of our other shorts as well! They’re just as easy to combine and the color and contrast rules work exactly the same way. You’ll just probably get a more casual vibe, especially if you accompany them with some summery colorful espadrilles.

What to do on Christmas. Best 10 alternative plans.

Posted by BENIBECA Swimwear on

What to do on Christmas. That’s the main question many adventurous enthusiasts of alternative plans face every year when this special date comes around. For most traditional people Christmas is closely related to oven roasted turkeys, fruit cakes, panettones, and candy canes. Carols, neatly decorated Christmas trees and colourful sparkling lights. Family gatherings, close-to-the-chimney dinners, snowmen, woollen coats and lots of presents. But what about those bold hearted cosmopolitan men who what to run away from tradition and go on an alternative vacation? Everything is possible.

For those of you matching this description, here you have 10 amazing alternative plans you can enjoy with your family, friends or partner, so that you can have the holidays of your dreams. What to do on Christmas won’t be a problem ever again.


  1. Winter pool with outstanding sights. Who says you can’t jump right into a luxurious private pool in winter, while you admire the Swiss highlands right in front of you? The Villa Honegg Hotel, in Ennetbürgen (Switzerland) stands right on the Bürgenstock mountain, and all its suits have a private air conditioned pool on their balcony. Ask for a bottle of champgne, take with you your favourite fruit cake, and enjoy them with your partner while you swim together underneath the snow flakes. Just in case you want an outfit fitting the occasion, our Dogon model would perfectly match the dark blue tones of a winter night in the heart of the mountains.

  2. Like in the movies. If you’re looking for something bolder and original, jump into your favourite movie and become part of its plot, thanks to the fully immersive cinematographic experiences that the British Secret Cinema company offers. Let them take you to a secret location and turn you into the main character of the best movies ever made. Become an international spy like the secret agent 007, travel the Universe aboard the Millenium Falcon, sing in the Moulin Rouge musical or travel to the futuristic world of Blade Runner. A Christmas night full of possibilities. Which one will you choose?

  3. Diving in Ningaloo. If you want to forget about the cold Europe and you’re an enthusiast of the ocean life – like us – we recommend you travel to the city of Exmouth in Australia, where you can enjoy an amazing vacation diving around the Nigaloo reef. Don’t forget your waterproof camera and take pictures of the outstanding coral outcrops, swim along exotic fishes of all kinds, and admire the marine tortoises that will accompany you on your trip. At the end of the day, drink a traditional Australian Guava on the beach while you watch one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Make sure you don’t forget your Samburu swimshorts to make it all even more memorable.

  4. Thermal baths on Christmas. You don’t need to travel to the other side of the world to enjoy an alternative Christmas. If you want a combination of both, a hot and cold experience at the same time, a couple of exclusive outside thermal baths will be your best choice. If you’re from Spain –or you’re planning on visiting this country – the Chavasqueira hot springs in Ourense have three natural stone pools, resembling an authentic Japanese Zen temple. Take your family and your Azande shorts with you – its blue tones will perfectly match the colors of the mountain clear water – and enjoy an original Christmas vacation wearing a swimsuit in the middle of the snow!

  5. Skiing, spinning restaurants and ice caves. What if what to do on Christmas didn’t necessarily need to be a choice? What if you could have it all? The exclusive Saas Fee ski resort in Switzerland is the best option for those adventurous souls who don’t want to give up on anything, or for those whose family members and friends enjoy different activities. If you’re an intrepid sportsman you can go skiing on the endless over 62 miles long ski slopes, you can go mountain walking on the specially organised 12 miles long routes, or enjoy a sledge ride with your kids. In the surroundings you may also find other kinds of activities, like ice climbing, zip lines or a trip to the biggest ice cave in the world. Finally, so that you don’t need to give up on the traditional Christmas dinner either, you can order a special menu at the Drehrestaurant Allalin, the highest spnning restaurant in the world.

  6. Trip to the Norvegian fjords. If you want to live a really cold experience and bond your soul to nature, we recommend you go to Bergen, the heart of the Norvegian fjords. Aboard the Bergen or the Flam Trains you will have the chance to enjoy some of the most breathtaking mountain landscapes in the world, while you drink a glass of hot chocolate or red wine. Afterwords, go on a cruise across Nærøyfjord, one of the most spectacular fjords in Europe, considered a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. End up your day with a nice dinner with your friends and family at one of the wooden traditional Norvegian restaurants in the villages of Aurland or Undredal.

  7. A romantic Thai-Spanish trip. If you want an express two-days-holiday, and you can’t waste time on a long flight, you may enjoy a relaxing and exotic experience in Spain. The exclusive Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa, in Alicante, will carry you away to the authentic Thailand, without having to travel to the actual Asia. Its tropical gardens composed of over 3000 original Asian species, its 7 luxurious pools, its 9 gourrmet restaurants and its exclusive Thai Spa are famous all over the world, and are the best choice to help you recover your vital energy before starting a whole new year. And so that you can be up for the occasion, take with you our Zulu shorts and make sure you stay stylish throughout the whole experience.

  8. Christmas in an igloo. Travel with your kids to Rovaniemi, Santa Claus’ town in Lapland, Finland, and offer them an original Christmas dinner at Snowland, a restaurant made mostly of ice and snow! Take into account that there will be no chimneys nearby, so make sure you pack some extra woollen coats aswell! Oh, and by the way, if you’re lucky enough, you might even get to see one of the most amazing natural phenomenons in the world: the Northern Lights!

  9. Christmas Carnival. If you haven’t decided quite yet what to do on Christmas, or you’re one of those people who are not really into the whole Christmassy thing, you can also turn this celebration into an authentic Carnival at Nassau, Las Bahamas. On the 26th of December and on New Year, they celebrate the Junkanoo, the oldest and most traditional costume and music parade in the Caribbean! A whole new explosion of colors that burst into the streets and surrounds everything with a festive atmosphere. Don’t forget our Lokori and you will blend in with the locals for sure!

  10. New Year at Chingay. Finally, if you’re one of those folks who would rather celebrate New Year’s Eve than Christmas itself, your best choice will be the Asian continent. Travel to Singapore and live the Chingay, the biggest parade in the world organised for the Chinese New Year (February 15th and 16th). This festivity is well known for its carriages, dragons representations, flotting lanterns over the rivers and outstanding fireworks. It’s certainly the perfect occasion to understand and enjoy the real meaning of life. ¡Merry Christmas and a very happy new year!
