Dear Shaded Viewers,
If only alarm clocks projected colours instead of noise in the morning.
They are Brazilian not Japanese, just like Bruna Tenorio. Backstage at Ellus I was told she wasn’t ready yet for the Beauty shots.
Not so ready for the show were the Emperor’s new shoes.
The Empress, on the other hand, would rather wear Melissa.
Today Melissa presented the result of their collaboration with architect Zaha Hadid. Impossible to be reproduced in a different material other than plastic, these shoes are made using one single mould injected with liquid plastic. They’re so high-tech I suspect not even the Japanese would be able to fake them.
Backstage at V Room. Designer Igor de Barros was inspired by Wes Anderson’s film "The Darjeeling Limited".
As all Japanese know, working hard has its rewards. Lula was showing me one of the joys of being a fashion journalist.
Paolo Borges, the man behind Sao Paulo Fashion Week, also works non-stop. He was telling me about his recent trip to Paris when all of a sudden he asked me: "Which month is it"?
Last show of the day took place in the Marquise of Ibirapuera Park. As a boy I used to skip class and come skateboarding here all the time. The photo below was taken during my first skateboarding competition in Sao Paulo. I was 11 and very nervous. To my surprise I arrived 3rd place, got a trophy and a bag full of gear. A day I will never forget.
Back then all I knew is that fashion was some foreign word I couldn’t pronounce.
