La Solitaire Bompard Le Figaro

Matthias Geerts

Hi Guys,

What are you up to? I’m still exploring all the SS17 collections at Milan fashion week. It has been really hectic the last couple of days and my work schedule has become really chaotic. I guess it is just part of the fashion industry in general, it can be very chaotic but in the meantime it is also why is gives you so much energy, there is no time to think you just go with the flow and join the ride along with everybody else.

However now I have some spare time in my hotel room and I remembered that apart from the fashion weeks and the Eurocup there is something as much exciting going on in Europe, more specifically in France. I don’t know if you ever heard of La Solitaire? It is one of the oldest, most difficult and most renowned Sail races in the world. Each skipper joins this race at least once in his life.

You must be wondering why am I telling you all this. Well, one of my partners Eric Bompard is the title sponsor of this race and the sweater I’m wearing is especially dedicated to this race. It is made from Milano, a type of cashmere that is very snug which gives it a very structured and minimalistic appeal. The design with the buttons on the shoulders and the navy color of the sweater don’t leave any doubt this sweater has something to do with the marine lifestyle.

If there are any sail fans among you guys there is a live link to follow the race. Check the link below:
The race starts on June 19th, in the link below you can find additional information
