Love love love Natalia with her lovelies! And I’ve always been a fan of the underappreciated ISABELI FONTANA. Beautiful Italian Brasilian–classy, elegant, with skin still supple unlike her VS counterparts! She looks fantastic even in this natural pose where she’s taken by surprise.
I love hamish bowle’s shoes! they are so nice, and complement his outfit very well. As for the boy in the second picture…that body really is so perfect he belongs in the MET as a greek Kouros! Natalia Vodianova and her babies looks so cute! beach days in rio…way to make me jealous sart!!!
I don’t feel the spontaneously in the photos from Brasil like ocurrs when you photograph people on the streets of NY or Paris por example. In most brazilian photos I don’t see the unknown stilish guy/girl. There are mostly models or high society people.
I really really like the printed trousers and jacket in the upper pic!
Friendly colours, indian and italian or french patterns. Well, I am not sure if the printed jacket works with the dark blue shirt, and the way itÂ´s closed is a bit female… but that doesnÂ´t really matter.
I have patterns like those for our furniture and pillows, looks nice as well ;))
Is everyone in Rio thin, tan and gorgeous? I am feeling a bit pasty and plump just looking at these photos here in the colder climate…. Love all the dresses and just the sense of beachy fun! Just saw Hamish at the YSL lecture last week at SF DeYoung and he is really so beautifully spoken as he is well dressed.
I love love love the first picture. Hamish of course never disappoints, but the two of them together is even more incredible, the pants on the left, the jacket on the right, the bright colored slippers on both. And don’t you just love how their individual drinks match their shoes! =)
wonderful prints! funny how in the first picture thir drinks match the color of their shoes…just wonder if its intentional. just love rio, so beautiful, just hoped most brazilians wouldn’t be afraid to be more stylish..
I’m from Rio and I have to say, I’m disappointed. Clearly, you did not venture far from the hotel and fashion shows. As a result, these are the same Jet-Set fashion people. How can anyone take a bad picture of Isabeli or Natalia?
Of course, Rio is dangerous and you can’t venture off necessarily like that. But sadly, you seem to have taken mostly pictures of the predictably skinny people …Rio is a great city but people for the most part are not as fashionable as Paris or NYC – that is what I wish you had captured. People dress more “naturally” and they are not trying to be anything else…Bring back Emanuelle Alt and the Vogue P gang, they are the queens of this blog (and I miss them). Rio remains, for the most part, lost in translation.
You guys on the top photo ( pretending I don’t know who they are !!! ) you seem to have so much fun! much more fun than when you are in Milan, Roma, Florence, Paris or NY !!! the question is : life is short !!! where should we be to : have fun be ourselves avoid les cons ??? Rio, could be a destination ??? That is what I am looking for ??? Paradise could be anywhere we want it to be, but unfortunately we depend sooooo much on others !!!
Sartorialist, I miss you… These shots from Rio show that the original spirit of your blog has been lost and replaced with some jet-set credibility. I'd like you to leave the models and the fashionistas for your magazine work, and look a little harder at the people on the street with unexpected style. I miss the cool old men I miss the girls with unexpected combinations of H&M and Marni I'm really not inspired by all this tiresome fabulosity. Are we paying the price of your fame?
You are right – I’ve been overly judgmental. LOVE the latest posts… I know that your work life has to inform this blog, and you ARE showing us a vibrant mix of people from your expanded travels. Maybe I felt left out by the uber fab beach scene in this particular post. Maybe I was jealous! I’ll be paying closer attention. I will ALWAYS be a fan, and I thank you for setting me straight…
