SPFW: The Hottest Dressing Room Of The Season

No one can deny that the Rosa Chá show provided by far the most eye candy this season, with the likes of Leo Peixoto, Alex Schultz, Carlos Freire, Edilson, Michael Camiloto, and Ramirez Allender on the runway. Below are some of the pictures I took backstage before the show last Saturday night.





I also uploaded a gallery with more backstage pictures.

SPFW: Rosa Chá Or DSquared2?



The first ever Rosa Chá men's show last night opened with model Rodrigo Rothen showering naked on the runway. While the whole shower scene has been done before by Dean and Dan Caten at DSquared2, it was definitely fun to watch. The show which followed kept borrowing elements from DSquared2 and Dolce & Gabbana: a sleek black runway, a cast of oiled-up muscle boys, dance music blasting on the soundtrack, tiny swimsuits and shorts cut from the same pattern developed at DSquared2, cargo pockets galore, and four female super models thrown in the mix to gather even more attention from the media and balance the testosterone on the runway.

Trust me, I am not complaining from having to sit through a parade of sexy boys in swimsuits, but what I would have really liked to have seen are more original ideas. Designer Amir Slama is known as the king of the beach for his always innovative bikinis, so I was expecting a more creative and forward thinking take on men's beachwear from him. There were some pretty amazing swimsuits in the show. I don't understand why Slama decided to resort to such an overplayed gay aesthetic to present them.

Watch the show on the video below:

Naomi was also supposed to be at the show, but I guess she chose to do Dolce & Gabbana in Milan instead. Pictures of the collection in high resolution after the jump.

The Boys Of Fashion Rio

I could not go to Rio to cover the shows last week, but thanks to my friend Serginho here are pictures of the boys backstage.






The São Paulo spring shows start tomorrow, and I will be covering the action live. Expect fashion reviews, videos, and more pictures. A list with the models' names is after the jump.

Look Who Just Got A Haircut

Henzo Hülle got a new look with shorter hair just in time for the men's shows (and I hear it was suggested by Steven Klein).

This Is Going To Be His Season

The shows in São Paulo are a month away, but I am already placing my bets on Henzo Hülle. Below is his new comp card for the season, from Ragazzo Model Management.


Moving On

Brazilian Henzo Hülle just switched agencies, and is now with DNA in New York. Pick up the phone and book this kid now.
