Modus Vivendi: Rainbow Line swimwear

MV-RainbowLine-CampaignBannersModus Vivendi has been on a tear lately, and their most recent Rainbow Line shot in Cuba was hard for me (and I’m assuming you as well) to overlook.

The new color blocking swimwear line is available in eight different color combinations that are made from fast drying, high quality material. The classic brief cuts have cleverly designed backs to accentuate the positive (so to speak).

Modus Vivendi 2016 swimwear

bathing suitEarlier this spring the provocative underwear / male fashion line, Modus Vivendi, released their new bathing suit line.

While I’m not in any kind of shape to think about bathing suits, many will be hitting the beaches and pools regularly when Memorial Day Weekend officially kicks off the 2016 summer season. Modus Vivendi Neon line includes briefs, Brazil cut boxers, boxer briefs and boxer shorts in three vibrant colors including neon aqua, neon fuchsia and neon yellow.

I’ll just live vicariously through the images. Below are some of my favorites. All the photos were taken in Northern Greece and featured model, Sotiris Thomaidis by P2Photography. You can see the full line of the 2016 swimwear collection here and you can purchase these items in the US at International Jock.

Modus Vivendi photo shoots captured on video

Modus Vivendi is one of my favorite design labels for underwear, swimwear and accessories. The European label has been on a tear lately introducing a series of new collections this year and along with those products come tantalizing photos. Recognizing the appeal of their campaigns Modus Vivendi has also released videos of some of their favorite photo shoots like the one I’ve included from their new “Hole Line” which was shot in the streets of Madrid by Joan Crisol.

Men’s underwear preferences

Diesel UnderwearBack in December I wrote a post and included an infographic about gay men’s underwear preferences that had been created and shared by The Underwear Expert blog, which you can read here.

Earlier this month HuffingtonPost published an article after teaming up with AskMen who surveyed 650 men about their underwear preferences. Below is the infographic that they compiled based on their research.

Interestingly, there was a difference in preference with The Underwear Expert blog that focused on gay men sharing that they preferred briefs (27%) and boxer briefs (22%) to the AskMen / HuffingtonPost survey which found that the overwhelming number of men buy boxer briefs (58%).men's underwear infographic

The Museum of Fine Arts Boston has a new exhibit that opened this past weekend that you may want to check out called #techstyle.

The exhibit is about technology innovations that are inspiring designers, influencing the future of fashion and the way people interacting with their clothing. The exhibition draws on the MFA’s collection of contemporary fashion and accessories, and features key pieces from innovators in the field including a digitally-printed dress from Alexander McQueen’s Plato’s Atlantis collection (Spring/Summer 2010/2011) and Iris van Herpen’s 3-D printed dress (2013) produced in collaboration with MIT designer and assistant professor Neri Oxman. You will experience the cutting edge of hi-tech fashion with special commissions created by CuteCircuit, Hussein Chalayan, Kate Goldsworthy, and Somerville-based Nervous System.
