Love. Love. Love.


Just when I thought androginy was so last year, Katie Grand makes it work for me: Lea T. and Kate Moss share a kiss in one of the covers of the new androginy issue of Love.

Guapo, Arthur Sales, Lea T, Designer Collaborations, And The Week


  • Love the cover of the blond ambition issue of Guapo.
  • Sexy outtakes of Arthur Sales by Dean Isidro.
  • Martha Streck on the cover of Oyster magazine.
  • Brazilian designers are launching less expensive lines in partnership with mass retailers more than ever this season. Former Rosa Chá designer and owner Amir Slama has launched his third capsule collection for C&A, Osklen's Oskar Metsavaht is unveiling his first collaboration with Brazilian retailer Riachuelo today, and rumor has it that Gisele is scheduled to launch her line for C&A again. She is confirmed to be the new face of the retailer in Brazil, replacing Isabeli Fontana, Ana Beatriz Barros, and Caroline Ribeiro.
  • Chanel will be opening its second store in São Paulo at Iguatemi Mall next month.
  • Lea T is now represent by Way Model Management in Brazil, but I doubt that any national label will have the balls to book her for an ad campaign.
  • If you are in São Paulo this weekend, don't miss the sixth anniversary of The Week's Babylon party on Saturday night. DJ Chris Cox will be spinning, and the party will have a Harajuku Lovers theme. On Sunday the club will be throwing another XL Pool Party at Clube Atlético Nacional with guest DJs Lydia Sanz and Tommer.
  • If you are gay, live in Brazil, and also annoyed at how your rights have been left behind in the presidential race, you should read this (in Portuguese).

U+Mag, Rachel Zoe, Liliane Ferrarezi, And The Facebook Movies



Nothing like having friends who stop by Opening Ceremony to pick up precisely the magazines you want to get. Now if I can only get my hands in the new Self Service edited by Joe McKenna.

ffw Mag!, Debora Müller, Prada, Topshop, And The Brazil Foundation Gala


  • The new issue of ffw Mag! featuring all the Brazilian spring 2011 collections is already on newsstands, with newcomer Nathalia Oliveira on the cover. I am going to pick up a copy over the weekend and scan some of my favorite pictures to post next week.
  • Debora Müller was the Brazilian girl with most bookings in London this season, walking eleven shows and scoring three exits at Burberry.
  • In case you missed the live broadcast yesterday, here is a video of the genius Prada spring 2011 show.
  • Flipped through the latest 10 Men featuring Tony Ward this week, and it is brilliantly edited. For pictures of the story photographed by Marcelo Krasilcic for the issue, visit his blog.
  • Watch the new Love, Chloé commercial with Raquel.
  • Rio's Buati party is taking over Lionsclub in São Paulo tonight.
  • The Week São Paulo is celebrating its sixth year in business this weekend with three huge parties.
  • It is finally confirmed: Topshop will be opening two stores in São Paulo in 2011. Topshop will open in the first semester, and Topshop/ Topman will open in the second semester. I wonder if the prices will be the same in Reais or if the merchandise will be ridiculously expensive as everything else is in Brazil.
  • Gisele looked stunning in a backless Calvin Klein number last night at The Brazil Foundation's 8th Annual Gala Benefit. Also at the event at the Met were Pedro Andrade, Lorenzo Martone, Anne Hathaway, Cecilia Dean, Vik Muniz, and Fernanda Motta. The after party was at the Boom Boom Room. Did any of you go and took pictures?

Brazil Gets A New Magazine That Sort Of Looks Like Details


A new men's magazine named Alfa was launched in Brazil last week. In case you haven't noticed yet, it features the exact same typography of the Details logo, and a blatant copy of Details' art direction on the cover. If the content were at least up to par with the content Details produces and was aimed at the same demographics of the magazine, I could perhaps understand knocking off its art direction. However, Alfa's content is a lot more Men's Vogue than Details or GQ. For those of you who don't remember, Men's Vogue was killed two years ago. If there wasn't a customer for a magazine like that in the US, I doubt that there is a customer for it in Brazil.

If you are a person who is constantly getting information online like myself, the first issue of Alfa will put you to sleep before you even leave the newsstand. The content is actually very well produced. I just felt it wasn't relevant to me on any level. Maybe I should test drive it on my dad and see what he thinks. He is probably the target customer anyway, although I cannot imagine him buying any magazine that is not related to cars or travel.
