It was definitely a pleasure to style another CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO fashion show this past week in Los Angeles. The fun Brazilian brand, created by Gil Even, brought to Style Fashion Week a very colorful and of course sexy collection. Mustache prints, happy faces, flags, solid colors, peace themes….it was all part of the CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO SS17 which had 27 looks. With the exception of the first four “kafia” looks paired with swimsuits that carried this theme, the styling for this show was light with the mission to only complement the designs created by Gil which always embodies a good sense of humor while elevating the male body form. I used the new Havaianas Action sandals mixed with the more recognizable classic version of this label. Most of the 13 hand picked models wore the Spice Necklace sharp pieces by Johnathan Cardillo. Tahitians colorful “cangas” bought in the Moorea Island gave a flowy super hero cape movement to some looks, oversized Invicta watches added masculinity when matched to bags and arm band accessories from Gilson Martins. And for the over the top rich eccentric customer traveler, model Kyle Kriesel walked down the runway carrying a $27,000 bag by designer Farbod Barsum / Beverly Hills made for Universal Body  paired with the “Por Do Sol-sunset” CA-RIO-CA sunga. Sunglasses were few; Havaianas and two vintage retro round pieces from my personal archives, they perfect framed the faces and hair created by Samuel Rodriguez. The peaceful final walk had white flags created by Rogelio Perez.

Once again, I did the styling for the CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO fashion show. The show took place in Los Angeles this past weekend during the Style Fashion week. This Brazilian brand was created/founded by Gil Even; it is located in LA. All the products are made in Brazil.

I divided this runway show was in four phases, and it is just a fun show to style, simply because it is the energy of the models that helps elevate even more that cool sungas that Gil creates.

You can watch the whole show HERE !!!

It is fashion week time again for the CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO brand. This will be the third fashion show of this super cool Brazilian brand created by Gil Even, who is also the designer. Gil will once again bring to the catwalk a taste of the freedom and spirit of the “carioca” people, which means “born in Rio”.
I am very happy to be doing again the styling of the show, and excited to bring to the runway all the ideas that Gil and I keep brainstorming between seasons…for sure it will be a fun show. So, if you would like to attend the CA-RIO-CA SUNGA CO presentation at the Style Fashion Week on March 18, please RSVP HERE , and we will see you in Los Angeles.
