I have a new found love and appreciation for Brazilian brands. Thanks to the Sao Paulo Fashion Week, I discovered two new favorite brands! They're not new brands to a lot of people, but I probably have been hiding in a rock somewhere to not know them. Nonetheless, they have now officially entered my fantasy world. So, if you were beside me under the rock I've been hiding, well here's a taste of sunshine:
Osklen is a Brazilian brand headed by Oskar Metsavaht, who believes in eco-friendly "green" materials to create comfortable, out of this world designs. Looking at his former and previous collections, he is very structural and three dimensional in design, not to mention how wearable and comfortable they all probably are. Check out their ready to wear collection here http://store.osklen.com/loja/Default.aspx. The Ocean, seen in blues and denims, was a definite inspiration.
Here's a taste of their 2011 collection:
Colcci Creating the biggest buzz in Brazil, with Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and funny man Ashton Kutcher on their runways, Colcci is staying and making their mark. Colcci showcases chic yet street and youthful clothing, a perfect match for the tropical country. How sexy are those corsets?!
Without further adieu, here's a taste of their 2011 collection:
