Maybe the world's best-paid DJ would have loved to join a boy band. In any case, Calvin Harris, Scottish house DJ and producer with celebrity status, seems to have the courage to stage Schmalz.

This is proven by a recently posted photo of Harris (far left) and three of his friends in skimpy Speedo swimming trunks posing around a stone lion fountain. The portrait, reminiscent of Roman gods, was made accessible to the public thanks to music video director Emil Nava (enthroned). "We said YES," he headed it on Instagram - what is most striking, however, is what the would-be hunks obviously said "no" to: material.

Most read this week:

»Speedos«, swimwear with a brief cut from the Australian-British swimwear manufacturer Speedo, are mainly worn by oiled Latin lovers in the provinces and ambitious young swimmers. In the second case to reduce the flow resistance, in the first to clumsily boast about the crown jewels - the nylon panties leave nothing to the imagination.

It was known that Calvin Harris had no problem revealing his marginally veiled body to the public - he had already modeled in underwear for Emporio Armani. The current display comes just during the War of the Roses, which is being waged on all social networks, with his ex-girlfriend, singer Taylor Swift, who is already kissing a newcomer, actor Tom Hiddleston. So when Harris chose swimming trunks, hurt pride played a role, along the lines of “Here! See what you're missing «?

Although the well-trained Harris can of course afford to wear minimal panties. It remains to be seen whether this will attract a lot of female attention. "Covering is promise" is a famous bon mot from, of course !, Christo. At least Orlando Bloom seems to have taken that to heart. The actor recently showed up on Malibu Beach wearing tent-like maxi shorts. In contrast to Harris, does he have something to hide underneath? Got the current culotte trend wrong? Or does he want to work on his image as a casual surfer boy? In any case, the choice of his beach companion, surfing legend Laird Hamilton, speaks for this.

The question of stylish swimwear is one of the most difficult in men's fashion. In fact, very few aesthetic highlights have impressed us in this area over the last few decades: Sean Connery and later Daniel Craig rising out of the water as James Bond, David Hasselhoff with a lifebuoy under his arm in Baywatch, Alain Delon seducing Romy Schneider at Swimming pool.

At the home bathing lake, the textile gray predominates - microslips hidden under beer bellies and Hawaiian shorts pulled up to the chicken breast dominate. Is it all a question of the figure? No, the attitude too. As shown above, even well-built Hollywood stars regularly fail to choose the right shape and length and even Daniel Craig told Playboy after his first 007 that he never wanted to wear swimming trunks like the ones in Casino Royal again, that he was uncomfortable.

Perhaps the only thing that really helps in the summer clothing dilemma is strict regulations. In France, where fashion is taken seriously as a matter of state anyway, wide Bermuda shorts are banned in some public swimming pools - supposedly for hygienic reasons. There Calvin Harris and his young squad would be in good hands.
