Cachaça & Carnaval: Couture Culture with Brazilian Style! [GIVEAWAY]

Ah, Brazilian culture – it’s beautiful. So dynamic, so fervid and so unique.

As the only Portuguese-speaking nation in Latin America, it’s the land of the caipirinha, botos, the Amazon, samba and carnaval.

Where energy independence and strategically using their natural resources, have thrust them from third-world economic status to hosting the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016.

Brazilian Style by Armand Limnander, Assouline’s most anticipated release for autumn, is the quintessential guide to celebrating and understanding the richness that is Brazil: the architecture, fashion, beauty, culinary arts, and culture.

Hardcover, 208-pages, rich colour and described as

Pelé, Oscar Niemeyer, caipirinhas, Sonia Braga, Vik Muniz, Ivo Pitanguy, Ipanema, Tropicália, and more…

Brazilian culture is rich with artists and architects, models and screen stars, festivals and religions.

Brazilian Style exports the country’s best—including legendary icons from the past as well as contemporary, cutting-edge trendsetters.

With evocative photography and succinct, fast-paced texts, the book takes readers on a curated tour of the most important symbols of modern and traditional Brazil.

Combining high and popular culture, Brazilian Style is a fresh and dynamic mix, capturing the spirit of one of the most vibrant nations on earth.

Splashed with delicious photographs, Brazilian names such as the gorgeous Gisele Bündchen, fashion designer Francisco Costa and the world’s best rubber flip-flops, Havaianas, grace the pages.

Flipping through the book is a whirlwind of colour, traditional foods, festivals and visual sensory overload.

    Style is an outward manifestation
    of your inner aura, which includes your emotions, personal growth, passion,
    creativity, motivation, and above all your inner essence. Our inner essence is
    reflected in the way we portray and carry ourselves with confidence,
    discipline, and elegance to others and the world.
