Caribbean Cool

Contemporary swimsuits mingle with an old-school island vibe

We fell in love with the recently renovated Flor de Oriente, a 1930s relic that is one of the island’s oldest bars. With great attention to detail, new life was recently breathed into this historic watering hole, located on a side street in downtown Oranjestad. The end result is a charming preservation of tradition presented with a retro vibe. There were so many enchanting nooks and crannies with fascinating antiques and memories of a bygone era to explore here that we could not resist using it as a canvas for our swimsuits.

The location was also the perfect setting to show off the funky and fun Caribbean head wraps of Rita Blues Wraps, paired with the latest swimsuit collections from De Palm’s Coconuts and The Juggling Fish Swimwear. Our looks were accessorized by stunning collections from Rage Silver. Makeup by Bruce Stamper. Photography by Steve Keith.
