the full Brazilian


If this island-themed editorial for the holiday issue of T Style for NY Times magazine doesn’t inspire you to buy a bikini, grab your Havaianas and pack your bags for a sun-drenched island holiday, then nothing will. The gorgeous Raquel Zimmermann is photographed by Angelo Pennetta wearing fun and colourful swim- and resort- wear. This blonde, blue-eyed Brazilian beauty chose the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha in Brazil as the place to shoot this editorial which features the playful and fresh designs of Derek Lam, Escada, Bottega Veneta, Missoni and Yves Saint Laurent.

So as we slip into summer in the Southern Hemisphere, let’s be transported to an island escape with turquoise water, white sand and chilled piña coladas… but don’t forget the SPF!
