Hi guys or BOM DIA! Last week, I experienced the most incredible trip to Brazil with Valentino for a very exciting shoot with Harper‘s Bazaar Brazil in a very special location!
I arrived in Sao Paulo last Sunday with an overnight flight, checked into the Fasano hotel and explored the neighbourhood. I used a local food delivery guide to find some cute spots and tried out brunch at Cafe Habitual (such an amazing vibe!) before getting an iced oat milk matcha at Café Zinn. I loved just exploring the streets and somehow got some serious WeHo vibes from walking on a Sunday afternoon with my iced drink ;).
That afternoon I headed to the Cidade Jardim mall to visit the beautiful Valentino boutique and meet the local Valentino team. Everyone was so warm-hearted and passionate and they even offered me my favourite piece – a sparkling Valentino belt chain – as a gift! They are so kind and generous. Next, we all headed to the Japanese restaurant Makato which was too good. Edamame, sushi and fire toasted avocado – a dream! Even though Alex and I were jetlagged we fell in love with the Valentino Brazil team and had so much fun!
The next day, we took the helicopter to our shoot location at Angro dos Reis. We were so lucky with the weather and managed to take the boat out to work on an upcoming Valentino project followed by a magical sunset swim.
The next day was the big day! The cover shoot for Harper’s Bazaar wearing Valentino – what a dream! I can’t show you more just yet because we were shooting a secret summer collection but it was such a special day and I can’t wait to see the pictures.
Back in São Paulo, we checked into the Rosewood Hotel – A stunning new hotel that has an amazing roof terrace with an infinity pool, a cute reception area, a lively breakfast restaurant and stunning interiors. We finished off with a goodbye dinner at the Brazilian Michelin star restaurant Mani before heading back to the UK. It was such a short but eventful trip and I’m so grateful when my work brings me to such exciting places. I can already tell you that I’ll be back in Brazil in around two months for another big shoot and I’m so happy about it!
Check out some of their pieces I wore over the trip here!
Lots of love,
