THE RIO LIFE: Frescobol Carioca, the luxury swimwear brand inspired by the vibrance of Rio de Janeiro, is launching a summer 2018 capsule collection with help from the Brazilian illustrator and journalist Paulo Mariotti.
“It was a perfect match,” Mariotti said during the launch of the collection in London on Wednesday. “I presented a series of drawings I did over the years, about Rio and Brazil, drawings I did for myself. Eventually, the designer at Frescobol Carioca approached me, showed me the Carioca Post, and said that we needed to do something together.”
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
