The summer issue of the magazine “The Curvy” is out now! In this number, you will find the season’s hottest trends and special content I made just for the magazine.
Lindex has been one of my favorite fast fashions to shop. And it is totally due to their iniciative to extend the sizes in their regular lines, offering more diversity and inclusion in their collections. And this is to admire nowadays when we can see that there are so many brands that just seem to “keep eyes closed” to a trend of inclusion and diversity in fashion.
I have been invited by the brand to visit one of their shops in Oslo and pick summer outfits from the Holly & Whyte collection – the first to have extended sizes. Lindex still has the Generous line which is exclusively plus size.
Zizzi is soon lauching its summer collection How exciting? It is the season we all wait for. More colors, prints, and all that happy vibe around the clothes. Yes, we love summer. And to celebrate the launch, Zizzi invited me to pick my likes of the collection and to make this editorial in Rio. Yaaaaas! Should I have said yes or of course? ahahaha
The clothes are really beautiful. Variety of materials and prints, ranging from delicate flowers to polka dots. In this first selection I present you you, you can see two of the dresses I think are the most beautiful in the collection for my style and the gorgeous top with two layers, paired with a cute buttom-up like denim skirt.
The three looks fit several styles and ocasions, making your wardroe fresher and cooler for the long summer days we have been longing for so much.
The pieces will be available in stores and online from march. Get prepared to go crazy. Soon, the second part of this editorial I shot in Rio.
As you may have noticed, I was born in Rio and moved to Oslo couple of years ago. That may tell you something about my love for my hometown. Me and the nice people I work with at Zizzi thoight it would be a great idea to shoot their summer collection in Rio. Nothing wrong with summer clothes and Rio, right?
So as I produced it myself, I started scouting location first on my mind then going to the places. Based on the clothes and on the variety of scenarios, I picked Parque das Ruinas. Unique among the city’s many vantage points, this Park of Ruins is located a top a hill in the Santa Teresa district, next to Museu da Chácara do Céu, used to be an opulent residence built by homeopathy trailblazer and politician Joaquim Murtinho (1848-1911) and inherited by his niece, Laurinda Santos Lobo, who was known as the hostess of one of the most coveted salons, or social gatherings, of her time. The view from the city is the main highlight of the area. A real must go.
Then I worked with one of my favorite fashion photographer, Vitor Fernandes. He has a colorful and happy eye over fashion and I like that he is fresh and relaxed. The results always have a happy vibe in the pictures, reflecting my personality and the clothes I am wearing.

Polka dots always go well with colors.
Double layer top in floral print. Love the bright colors. Trendy buttom up denim skirt.
Very lightweight fabric with a cute print. Fits well all body types.
An small city in the northeast of Brazil can be a great source of energy and inspiration. Even more when this place is located at the south of Bahia state. Itacaré has been one of the nicest short vacations we have had latelly. I felt like I was in another dimension, with different time frame and environment. It may be because Bahia, specially the small villages, has a different timing of living, something like stress-free and “don’t worry, be happy“. Check out more pictures, travel tips and a colorful outfit.
