As anyone who reads LPB knows, we absolutely love Brazilian fashion.
Growing up in South Florida, one of our favorite sandal brands was Ipanema. So, we were super thrilled about the latest collaboration between them and one of our favorite style architects. [Read more…]
New for 2016, we so are excited to share the latest SS16 collection, Barroca, from Brazilian plastic footwear brand, Melissa Shoes, in collaboration with touted furniture design duo the Campana Brothers.
A fresh take on Campana brothers’ signature mesh and overlapping lines, these florid flats blend ornaments of the past with modern details and an organic color palette.
Inspired by their Baroque furniture collection, Melissa Barroca x Campana lends a playful interpretation of Italian Baroque infused with the vibrancy of everyday Brazilian culture.
They. Are. Amazingggggg!
I have a pair in Rose Gold and they are the most comfortable and beautiful [Read more…]
Our dream is to one day sip a caipirinha along the coastline in Rio with a saucer-shaped straw hat atop our tresses, clad in a body-con dress, with our over-sized Aviators upon our perfectly lined, in liquid noir, eyes gazing into the sunset…
…until such time we can embrace Osklen’s SS13 collection, which oozed every ounce of an “endless summer.”
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…]
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.
To be quite honest, the entire show had me singing Paula Fernandes’ “CanÃ§Ãµes do vento Sul.”
… and I adore Fernandes, so I was a very happy girl during Miele’s entire runway presentation.
The final product was to vie for!
Never failing to make an impression, there is something to be admired and noted about the Brazilian designer’s consistency.
Carlos Miele’s over-the-top ball gowns have been wooing gala-attendants for almost ten years, but as seen with his pre-Fall 2012 collection, draped across the gorgeous Caroline Dahm, his style is always evolving.
This season presents a collection that, while is driven for [Read more…]
Mauricio Medeiros is passionate about shoes: there is no question about that. And after interviewing this Brazilian designer and seeing his stunning creations, I became very passionate about them too.
In particular, while browsing past collections on his website, I came across these beauties here, which were not for sale, but, maddeningly, even had my name on them! [Read more…]
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 AnunciaÃ§Ã£o, headed by designer Maria Elvira Crosara, who started the label in 1988.
The brand is well-known and loved in Brazil (famous fans including singers ZÃ©lia Duncan and Marisa Monte), with a flagship shop in the ultra-chic Oscar Freire street in SÃ£o Paulo. Itâ€™s also very pink, and we like that!
So as we build up to the next edition of SÃ£o Paulo Fashion Week, we got an exclusive interview with Maria Elvira, who tells us about the inspiration behind her prints, patterns and designs. [Read more…]
Samuel Cirnansck is not the easiest name to spell or pronounce, but if you have not yet heard of him, you soon will.
He is one of the many Brazilian designers who are making a name for themselves as the country claims a much more prominent place in the high fashion world. [Read more…]

Being green is one of those things â€“ like eating healthily â€“ that we all want to do but donâ€™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…]
