And before everyone starts thinking that I forgot about the Brazilian boys, I definitely did not. The magazine will not change in terms of being exclusively focused on Brazilian models, but for the past year I had been thinking about working on an international edition as a way of celebrating male models in general and this felt like the right time to do it. I like the idea of doing something a bit unexpected and slightly risky since I see the magazine as a collector’s item and I don’t want all the issues to be the same or too predictable.

The models and professionals involved in this issue may be different from previous ones, but the essence of the magazine is certainly the same (lots of skin, sensual images, amazing boys and great fashion). I am extremely proud of the casting of this issue, and hope that Made In Brazil fans will love it too as this is our only issue with international models in it and all the guys involved were incredible to work with. Models featured in the issue include Mariano Ontañon, Arran Sly, Chris Moore, Travis Smith, Thorben Gärtner, Ronald Epps, Joel Meacock, Lucas and Luis Coppini, Diego Fragoso, Ross Hindmarch, Sam Worth, Thor Clemmensen, Juan Betancourt, John Todd, Garrett Neff, David Agbodji, Jae Yoo, Chad White, Parker Gregory, Parker Hurley, Aurelién Muller, Nikolai Danielsen, Tobias Sorensen, and much more.

Many thanks to all of you who already bought a copy of the new issue over the weekend for supporting our work. It is definitely not easy to produce and print a magazine with over two hundred pages of pictures and no advertising in between, so thank you to those who allow us to continue to do it by purchasing a copy of Made In Brazil.


First Look:
Neith Nyer S/S 2014


São Paulo Fashion Week may be going on right now, but the one Brazilian name you should learn and pay close attention to is not on the São Paulo runways yet. Francisco Terra grew up in Brazil but went on to study fashion in Paris and spent three years at Givenchy before venturing out on his own womenswear label Neith Nyer, launching next spring. The label was named after one of his grandmothers, and the first collection look book was recently shot on a trip to São Paulo by photographer Fe Pinheiro with a team I proudly help to put together. For more on Francisco’s plans for Neith Neyer and his first collection, make sure to read his feature on Style Map.


The Fashion Magazine Covers On
Newsstands In Brazil This Month


Adriana Lima by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Brazil. Although the picture is way too retouched for my personal taste and I am still not a fan of the art direction, it is one of my favorite Vogue Brazil covers this year. Love all the black Chanel.


Thairine Garcia photographed in South Africa by Gui Paganini for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. This is Thairine’s fourth cover since the launch of the magazine in Brazil, and as much as I love her she was just on the cover three months ago. I would have loved to have seen Cris Herrmann on the cover instead since her story is my favorite in this particular issue.


Daniela Braga by Fabio Bartelt for Elle Brazil. The girl is insanely gorgeous and certainly doesn’t need this much retouching, but I am thrilled to see her on the cover of Elle.


Madison Headrick by Fe Pinheiro for L’Officiel Brazil. I still don’t get this publication and based on the headlines alone I am pretty sure I never will.


The Fashion Magazine Covers On
Newsstands In Brazil This Month


Aline Weber by Eduardo Rezende for Elle Brazil. Love the location in the Atacama desert, love the swimsuit, but not a fan of the hair or the retouching (it looks like someone did something wrong to her body, especially around the skirt part of suit).


Alessandra Ambrósio by Robert Astley Sparke for Glamour Brazil, wearing the exact same swimsuit by Lenny Niemeyer which is featured on the cover of Elle (Alessandra wore it much better in my opinion). I am going to forgive the Brazilian flag cliché because it is Independence month.


Ben Harper and Isabelli Fontana by Jacques Dequeker for Vogue Brazil. Fashion Rocks? What year is this? One of my least favorite issues of Vogue Brazil this year. Fyi, Isabelli added a second “L” to her name.


Dakota Fanning by Karl Lagerfeld for Harper’s Bazaar Brazil. Another one of Carine Roitfeld’s global cover stories, but probably the last picture of the entire editorial I would have handpicked for a Brazilian cover.


Amra Cerkezovic by Fe Pinheiro for L’Officiel Brazil. With so many good images in the editorial, I have no clue why that was chosen for a cover. It is neither cool nor edgy if that is what the magazine was trying to achieve here.
