this is rio! this is cool! if you want to see something more old and historical a good place is close to PRAÃ‡A 15 dawntown. there is a very nice caffe to have lunch in paÃ§o museum and close by you can see the Pharmacy granado that is there since 1870. if you are still in rio go there….if not maybe another time.
ook, about the guy i think i’m kind of used to it, you know? he’s gorgeous, fits perfectly but it’s commun beach clothing, at least for us. The girl however looks awesome. the colours are just perfect and her body makes the bikinis prettier !
I don’t know why there is people around here that expected to find sartorial looks at a Rio de Janeiro beach. People that go to the beach are thinking about comfortability and there isn’t best way to have it than using a swimsuit with flip-flops.
The photos were beautiful taken. I’m sure that there is not anything wrong with taking pictures like these in beautiful places like Rio de Janeiro sometimes.
SO this boy is HOT, that’s the first thing I noticed… whatever he wears will look sartorial, he’s got an edge, and he’s got a story, and that’s hot, and sometimes, some people are so suave they look good in anything…or practically nothing!
These pictures really show the beauty of Rio, beyond the necessity of showing people wearing new fashion trends from head to toes. But the vibe you get in that city, the positive energy, could never be felt by only pictures! You have to be there to really experience it! And I can see that you are…
Keep up the good work, and make sure you go to Jardim Botanico, Parque do Lage! I don’t know you, but I know you’ll love it!
I’m quite disappointed in the photograph of the young man.
His backpack, flip flops, accessories, and certainly his board shorts are all quite boring. The purpose in this shot lies in the man’s body.
I’m disappointed because I thought this blog was dedicated to photographing and exposing the most interesting and ingenious sartorial decisions. By photographing a man’s bare chest, you are reverting back to the abominable American mindset and perpetuating a culture of body image-obsessed people. So many people are inspired by this blog because it inheres a sense of reward for those who are smart and creative enough to put together a great outfit. There is nothing creative about a good body.
This photograph undermines my belief in the beauty of this blog, I’m sorry to say.
forget the sartorial for a minute, please. his body is an aesthetic masterpiece. in the eternal words of dionne in the movie clueless, “break me off a piece of that!” and in the just as eternal words of the smiths, “please, please, please let me get what i want!” he’s like built like adonis.
I donÂ´t now exactly… but I didnÂ´t like. The girl is the most commom look that you can find in any beaches in Brazil. We buy this pants with the guys in front of the beaches and many them are much more beautiful than this one. The biquini has a bad colour im my opinion. The guy is using a interesting shorts, but nothing more… is hard for me thing that they are fashion… probably because i saw this look all my life…
Love the pictures ! Yeah, that’s exactly how people wear clothes in Rio ! And that’s why the city is so famous around the world. I am from Sao Paulo, but I am living in London, can’t wait to go to Brazil this summer. It would be great if you could go to Sao Paulo, and then compare the styles between Rio and Sao Paulo, like you did in Stockholm (Sodermalm and Ostermalm).
The flawless hair, blowing in the breeze. The pose – a professional model? The shoes! How functional and stylish at the same time. The accessories – those must be the must have accessories of Rio. This pooch should start it’s own line.
To Kevin Gotkin at 11:13am (“By photographing a man’s bare chest, you are reverting back to the abominable American mindset and perpetuating a culture of body image-obsessed people.”), I’d just say that Americans do not hold the monopoly on the culture of body-obsessed people! As these photos show, it’s alive and well in other cultures, too. How you choose to groom and care for yourself is part of your sartorial outlook, I think. And these people are lovely! Stephanie
I’m wondering where you think body-image culture comes from if not America. A good friend of mine pioneered research in east Asian countries while at Harvard about body image and what he found is that their imperviousness to body image anxieties perfectly parallels their imperviousness to American consumer markets. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you that body image is a part of a person’s sartorial persona – CLOTHES are part of a person’s sartorial persona and they should be photographed and treasures here!
I really don’t understand why people comment anonymously, especially when they’re talking crap. This is your blog and it reflects what you see, what you feel, and what you want to share. Not what you think your readers want you to share. If that makes any sense…
I’m very new at blogging but since I discovered your photos I’ve been hooked. I love seeing things from other people’s perspectives and I think you give us that. YOUR perspective. That could mean that they’re wearing the most beautiful parka or simply in their shorts and flip flops…it’s RIO for goodness sake.
Anyway, I once tried making my dog wear booties to ‘protect’ his paws so I love the doggie picture.
“There is nothing creative about a good body.”… i think that there is creativity in how you want your body to be… all us lucky rich healthy people can choose how we wanna be image-wise and style doesn’t just exude from the clothes we wear (or your body alone either-i’m not saying that P:!) But you know, the woman, the dog and the dude are all making choices about their bodies to make a style statement… alright, maybe not the doggy (although I picture it all diva-style in the morning, rummaging through thousands of pairs of shoes)
