Perhaps it has something to do with me being born smack in the middle of it, but, yes, summer has always been my favorite season. Every year I look forward to it like how most people would look forward to, say, Christmas. Growing up in a small town where the beach was just 5 minutes away—and there always was a relative who owned a vacation house or a giant pool—certainly worked to my advantage. Working in editorial, I was always excited about putting together a “summer issue,� because that meant shooting at posh resorts and happening hotspots, doing travelogues, etc. To come to the point, “Just add water� has become one of my favorite formulas.

I have not done anything that has to do with editorial since, but until now I still like to plan my summers like how an art director would plan a “summer issue:� complete with mood boards and soundtracks.

This summer was no different. I had a nice little palette going on, which was predominantly terra-cotta, russet and ecru (earth tones, yes, ‘cause I wanted it to feel as worldly as possible), and a carefree soundtrack ("Free Time" by The Aggrolites, "Blue Skies" by Ella Fitzgerald, "People Everyday" by Arrested Development, etc.). I even had an official drink, and that’s the Malibu mojito—if that makes you curious, you know all you gotta do is ask.

I cannot wait for next summer!

I don't know why I haven't hype this yet, because I adore the polo shirt, the shoes and the terra-cotta color, it's gorgeous! And the background... I have no words! Just perfect. Now I really wanna go to Philippines and see all those beautiful places! =)
Angelo Kangleon
Haha. But don't Brazil have prettier beaches? I always thought that. Yeah, I love terra-cotta!
