artist Scooter LaForge with his friend/muse, the photographer Johnny Rozsa

After great collaborations with companies like Neutrogena, Patricia Field , CA-RIO-CA WEAR, V-FilesAdidas and Walter Van Beirendonck, it wasn’t such a big surprise to me when New York based artist Scooter LaForge  was invited to work with a world recognized brand name such as DIOR.
Scooter was hired to PAINT neon poison flowers on over 20 mirrors at the international launch of DIOR Poison Girl in New York City at the Poison Club, the party was hosted by Camille Rowe and it was definitely an event filled with glamorous chaos; from Bela Hadid to Keke Palmer, gorgeous ladies were all over the space drinking Veuve and posing at all the photos booths spread all over. Even I did the Dior way!

new york men’s day 2017

WOOD HOUSE

Bristol

The New York Fashion Week / Men started at Dune Studios with what they call New York Men’s Day where twelve designers showcased their collections at a two part day presentation, indeed a men’s day. The event presented by Agentry Pr opens up for the official men fashion week line up, I believe this is its third edition.

Overall the mood was political and of course the use of camouflage fabrics was very present. My interest was very much concentrated on Bristol, a Los Angeles brand , with its dusty palette and light refinement concepts. Back to the basics in a sharp and solid silhouette was the brand Uri Minkoff with his urban designers for the modern man.

rosane amaral amazing pOOl party in rio de janeiro

After my insane réveillon marathon of five parties, I wasn’t sure if I had enough energy to go to The Original Brazilian Pool Party produced by the visionary producer Rosane Amaral. Let me tell you something, I would have missed an amazing time, actually it was more like a show, with great music, beautiful people and fabulous performers. Check this awesome video !!
Indeed, it was a must place to be on the first day of the year, and the next pool event is already set for the upcoming Carnival. So, if you are going to be in Rio, this is definitely a party you wont’ want to miss it!

Yes, I was there with my friend/boss Gil Even, founder of CA-RIO-CA WEAR; we were giving away some sungas at this Rosane‘s event, who is looking very happy at this photo. In the back, our CA-RIO-CA WEAR model Rodolfo Marins looking beautiful!

and haPPy 2017 from the marvelous city of rio de janeiro

9pm: it was the first stop of the night, very casual and fun!

midnight; a very grand and small gathering to welcome 2017. Simply lovely

third stop of the night: at the Narciza’s apartment….no need to add more!! Fun and lots of hair movement

the triplex penthouse above Narciza’s place was surreal !!

Well, here I was again at the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro, the town that has the best New Years Eve of the whole world! I was hoping that this year I was going to be a little calmer, since my 2016 New Years Eve was really busy, but after the Festa dos Herois Safados, you get in a mood so vibrant…it is almost impossible to resist the energy. So here we went again into the night full of parties and celebrations…
Please don’t take me wrong, I have spent many years celebrating the “reveillon”  in the sands of Copacabana and it was simply amazing…but the time now is different and I like to know and always experience new things…
From a very casual chic gathering to a grand and small reception where I welcomed the first minutes of 2017, and from the super selected and busy party at the Narciza Tamborindeguy ‘s place at the Chopin building we ended up at the triplex penthouse right above Nariciza’s apartment….really insane. The end of the night or shall I better say the beginning of the new year was with the sunrise at the Fasano, and yes I did my little dance in the pool ! Happy 2017 !!

arriving at Fasano at 5am to wait for the sunrise…it was a lovely night indeed !

festa dos herois safados

One hour before the “Festa dos Herois Safados” started, people were still asking me if I had access to Kevin Ridgely; everybody wanted to attend his famous party and that’s a clear indication that this was definitely the place to be if you wanted to correctly initiate your end of the year festivities in the marvelous city of Rio de Janeiro.
Kevin Ridgely is extremely accessible, specially if you are a regular of the posto 9, in Ipanema Beach. I already knew who he was, even before meting him, because some people call him “the mayor of Ipanema”; a lovely description of the American gentleman who spends part of the year in Rio; he speaks perfect Portuguese, he is kind, extremely observant and quite frankly, my opinion is that Kevin is beyond street smart for Rio standards, he  has learned all the tricks, the slangs and the Brazilian way ….but most of all, he loves Brazil and his parties are truly an indication of his joyful spirit.
“Safados”, which is a Brazilian word for naughty, is the main theme which every year has a description of its own…from  *Principes Safados to *Britanicos Safados, Kevin has, in a very organized way, combined fantasy and sense of humor which results is a really great time, with beautiful people, fun food and drinks, hot massages, amazing music, superb view and great souvenirs to remember a super cool night in a very safe area.
I woke up next day with my super hero safado….what a night !! I can’t wait for next year already…Safado is already a brand !!

Me and the fabulous host Kevin Ridgely; and of course me next morning with my super heroi safado 😀 !!
