Color Me Brazillian and Brilliant

21 June 2008 at 4:17 pm 1 comment

After wondering and wondering for weeks, today’s Net-a-Porter email update was the last straw:

Who is the model on the far right?? I have seen her everywhere and her looks just kill me. She is so beautiful, in a graceful, classic, almost exotic kind of way. I remember her most from Marc Jacobs S/S 07 show,

and after tracking down said show on I discovered the identity of this mystery model! Ladies, meet Bruna Tenorio.

Young, beautiful, and successful, Bruna hails from Brazil, home to Giselle and designer Alexandre Herchcovitch.

I first came across Alexandre this spring when, in Korea, I found a shirt emblazoned with “HERCHCOVITCH” and thought for about a week that “HERCHCOVITCH” was the name of an obscure Slavic or Russian city. (We’re all still Fashionistas in training, as far as I am concerned…)

A quick Google search told me I was way off, and thus i am introduced to the brilliant designs of Alexandre Herchcovitch. Since the Fall of 2002 Alexandre has designed pieces with master cuts, rich colors, and sometimes quirky combinations to produce clothing that is something like what one would have if she were to blend the design elements of Dior couture, Marc Jacobs and streetstyle.

His style has undergone quite the evolution from spring 2002:

to this Fall 2008, which included Bruna on the runway:

but the basic elements remain, being his eye for cut, quirk, and color. Brilliant!
