We're really feeling the simplicity of this scooped neck Palma swim top from Baserange, one of the coolest brands out there. Made from shiny recycled PA with SPF 50+ in soft stretch fabric this piece is the perfect tone of warm and works equally well just as a casual super-crop-top as it does swimwear. With affordable prices, Baserange sets a high standard for quality and ethical production. Working with small, family-based factories in Portugal, the brand is doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by using natural fabrics such as recycled cotton and wool. They focus on sustainable, non-chemical processes to create beautiful and affordable understated staples.

One of my favorite sounds in the world is the voice of the late comedian Bernie Mac. I often think of an early performance of his, on the nineties standup showcase “Def Comedy Jam.” The routine, slightly less than six minutes long, is songlike in structure—after each cluster of two or three jokes, Mac yells “Kick it!” and a snippet of cheesy, drum-heavy hip-hop plays. Between these punctuations, he affects poses that would fit as comfortably within a twelve-bar blues as they do on the dimly lit Def Jam stage: sexual bravado, profane delight, sly self-deprecation, dismay and gathering confusion at a rapidly changing world. “I ain’t come here for no foolishness,” he says toward the beginning of the set, his double negative signalling playfulness and threat in equal measure. “You don’t understand,” he says again and again, sometimes stretching “understand” into four or five syllables.
