Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Premiere: Osklen SS13

Oskar Metsavaht (a former surfer), titled his well-respected Brazilian-based Osklen’s SS13 collection appropriately. An “endless summer,” in every which way, the collection was inspired by the California surf culture and the Brazilian soul of Ipanema. [Read more…]

Backstage at New York Fashion Week FW12: Carlos Miele’s Redken Hair

Brazilian born Carlos Miele is one of my favourite designers and I was in absolute awe at his Fall/Winter 2012 show this season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

For his collection, inspired by the south winds of Rio, Miele enlisted Rodney Cutler of Redken to style his models with feminine and casual elegance.

The Little Pink Blog loves Brazilian fashion, and we love to bring you some of the beautiful designs and collections that usually stay under the radar outside of Brazil. One such hidden gem is Anunciação, headed by designer Maria Elvira Crosara, who started the label in 1988.

Being green is one of those things – like eating healthily – that we all want to do but don’t always get around to. Recycling can be time-consuming, and researching which products are the most eco-friendly or ethically produced takes time that busy women with jobs might not have.

And for the fashion-savvy, the idea of actually wearing your recycling could seem like a step too far, but fear not. A hot new trend from Brazil is transforming humble soda can ring pulls into fashion must-haves, being extensively featured in the fashion press, including Elle Magazine. [Read more…]
