Prints On Prints On Prints: The Best Patterned Swimsuits From Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Swim (PHOTOS)

Great colourful prints.

Global Grind

Mara Hoffman Swim - Backstage -Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Swim just wrapped this week, and it was all about prints on prints on prints. From wild animal prints to psychedelic retro ones, the runway was decked out in eye-catching and jaw-dropping swimsuits. Some failed to meet expectations, but others met all that and more.

Get your summer body workout on and check out some of the designers who succeeded with flying colors, and take note on which prints will inspire your beach style next season.

For the most part, everyone was talking about Mara Hoffman‘s swimwear. The designer honed in on her hippie vibes to come up with a psychedelic collection that exploded with retro prints. Using a lot of purples, pinks, and neons, the designer created one-pieces and bikinis with patterns that sort of resembled kaleidoscopes.

Rookie Error or Manly Choice?

Great pic of a ‘strongman’.

As I have turned the pedal, so to speak, there is now the important task of getting the right kit. It’s always a delicate balance between ‘All the gear and no idea’ and having a few essentials to make the initial training more bearable. Mrs RC didn’t see my need for a brand new road bike, but we did agree the need on proper padding to protect the Crown Jewels.

So, bibs or shorts. After a long ‘training conversation’ with Fingers over the World Cup Final I was advised to purchase bibs.

To those of you who are as new to this as me, I would best describe these as a item of clothing worn by a Victorian Strongman. Eugene Sandow, Victorian Strongman

There were other reasons, chaffing was mentioned, comfort was considered, however the revealing of the backside was enough of a reason…

As you may have seen from my Twitter and Instagram feeds, last weekend I was in Lisbon for a fabulous blog trip in partnership with O2 Travel, and I discovered a true European gem! I’d been set a series of active and cultural challenges to complete; a city cycle, a 5k run, a winding hike, a harbour-side Yoga class, as well as cookery classes, a fresh market tour and some extensive sampling of the local fare. Having met my challenges head-on, I now understand why this is Europe’s #1 city break destination – and what a fabulous & sporty way to discover a city’s charming character!

Throw Down: Lycra or No Lycra

Great article about what to wear while biking covering a diverse set of views. Thanks for the post Performance Bicycle.

Performance Bicycle Blog

To wear or not to wear, that is the question. Few things seem to divide cycling tribes quite as much as lycra clothing. While for some, a pair of padded bike shorts and a zip up jersey are necessities, for others they are an eye sore that carries certain connotations with it. To be certain, lycra isn’t for everyone—and choosing to wear it or not to wear it is a personal choice.

As with most debates, neither side is right or wrong, necessarily. For the sake of argument though, let’s take a look at some of the pro’s and con’s of lycra.

Lycra is something most riders find a lot of benefit in...but not everyone Lycra is something most riders find a lot of benefit in…but not everyone


  • Super Comfortable: There’s no two ways about it, properly fitting lycra shorts and a good jersey are some of the most comfortable clothing you’ll ever wear

Primark – Facing my Fears

Bargain Lycra shopping. Nice finds and your sense of styling works well too!

The iLL sessions


First of all I’d like to thank Kayson for my £20 Primark voucher card and for setting me the task of going in to Primark, finding something I like, giving an honest review afterwards and not killing myself or anybody else while I’m in there, I set myself that bit. Considering my hatred for the places it sounds like mission impossible, but I thought I’d give it a go and today was the day…

It’s hot out today, I haven’t dressed particularly well, I’ve got shorts on but also a semi heavy Tommy Hilfiger shirt which I would have worn anyway even if I had of planned for it to be this hot because I’ve completely fallen in love with it. It’s also the day before Parklife, that means lots of people needing clothes that they don’t mind getting ruined in the forecast crappy weather which is going to generate…
