Brazilianizer

Ladies and Gentlemen..
Welcome back to G.F.D.!!

I MISSED YOU!, I MISSED TO POST, I MISSED IT ALL!!!!! So, let’s restart it in great style..

TODAY WILL BE ALL ABOUT
MY FAVORITES BRAZILIAN DESIGNERS!!

As you [should] know, I’m a proud [and skinny] brazilian man who can’t leave without at least a dash of glam fashion everyday, and how could I ever do this if Brazil did not have a great fashion?

Well, you asked me so badly that I couldn’t avoid to restart my blog with this post.

My sweeties, I’ll try in the next 617829 images to show you that there’s more in my country than banana’s, Carmen Miranda, Francisco Costa, Pedro Lourenço and Carlos Miele! Also, I’ll try to make you all fall in love for our labels and creations and trends… anyway..

Brazilian fashion is different of everywhere else. The trends are the same, but the way designers and stylists see them is completely different: is always fresh, with a pinch of casuality and sexy.
Our great fashion is the casual, but we have A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Couture designers!!

Ok, let’s start it..
[in parentheses are my views of those labels hehe]

Iodice (The Clean)

 

 

Gloria Coelho (The Techno)

 

 

Samuel Cirnansck (MY ETHERNAL LOVE)

Only a few photos, because I’m preparing a whole post about him!!

 

 

Alexandre Herchcovitch (The Bipolar – easily crosses the extremes)

 

 

Fernanda Yamamoto (OK, I just like her!!)

 

Cori (The Simple Chic)

 

 


NEON (The Brazil’s Sweethearts)

 

 

Tufi Duek (The Awaited)

 

 

Animale (The “Animal” – kinda obvius right?)

(was one of the sexiest Brazilian labels, but they kinda changed last season!)

 

 

Reinaldo Lourenço (Historyteller of Brazilian’s Fashion)

 

 

André Lima (The Diva)

ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITES! AND, AGAIN, I’M MAKING A POST ABOUT HIM.

 

 

 

This are my favorites, but theres tons of others designers and labels that I love and that I’ll probably show you in another time.
I showed you the last collections of them (mostly hehe) but my love for them grow along time, while I’m following their collections (and you should see their others, really!).

Brazil is an extraordinary place. Our colors, smells, creations, beauty and our pleasant people are our treasure… But also is our fashion!

National Pride!

Hope you start to see us with another eyes, and begin to love our fashion!!

LOVE YOU, MY DEARS!

Sweet Air Scape

(Play it first, then read the rest of the post)

Morning draft
Softly kissing my skin…
Like rose petals
Going through my face

 

The soft wind through my hair
Feeling like smooth velvet

 

Hard breathing comes clean
Tough thoughts became brighter.

I just need to feel the breeze between my fingers
And with my eyes closed hear the sound of the wind.

 

 

Because this is my sedative.

My lonely getaway from the mess my life has been.

(I LOVE this las photo!)

I Give Up: COLOR BLOCKING

I tried, as hard as you can ever imagine, to fight against this, but now need to admit:
I’M DEEPLY IN LOVE FOR COLOR BLOCKING!

(When even Lady Dior get Color Block, you need to shut up and get used to it!)

I know is a little late to do this post, even because everyone else already did it, but now there is a love feeling for it growing inside me.

After Gucci and Prada Spring shows, it became this magnificent trend that all we know. I’m not fan of too many colors or patterns together, but, moderated, is a great opportunity to wear crazy colors.

 

 

Maybe it’s just my eyes, but the color blocking do not work with any color combination. Bold pinks, oranges, yellows and purples are the tones of the trend, allowed with darker greens and blues, all mixed with a huge variety of neutral colors.
If you’re a addept, PLEASE, be carefull to don’t look like came from Teletubbies. From runaways to streets, there’s lots of adjustments necessaries to don’t look insane (or at 80’s!!!!!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re new in color blocking, start with shoes or amazing bags like everyone else – shirts, blouses or anything like that is to easy! Then take bold color pants and as fast as you can see you’ll be wearing a head to toe full colored outfit!

Thank God that now that I get used to it, designers are doing the same for next season! Probably not strong as now, but I’ll be wearing the same!

(for me, this look Raquel Zimmermann wore at Gucci’s Spring 2011 show, is the great representant of the Color Block Movement!)
