Made in Brazil #7 Cover: Rodrigo Calazans by Cristiano Madureira for Made in Brazil #7, November 2013

In the age of Tumblr, the veneration of models has reached its apotheosis. Countless sites dutifully catalogue every runway appearance, e-commerce job, and street style shot, all in celebration of the young and the beautiful. But from its start, Made in Brazil was something different. With its careful curation and clear editorial perspective, the website, devoted to Brazilian models, offered a specific point-of-view that added depth to the constant stream of images. So when founder Juliano Corbetta decided to launch a magazine in 2010, it was no surprise that it would be equally invigorating.

In the years since Made in Brazil’s first issue, the publication has featured a slew of the South American powerhouse’s best and brightest, from Evandro Soldati, Thiago Santos, Arthur Sales, Marlon Teixeira, and Francisco Lachowski to the Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. But what has set the magazine apart from others is its personal, intimate nature, coupled with a casual aesthetic that adds warmth to the often-stunning photography. For the new issue, out this week, Corbetta decided to take a moment to reflect. “When I started working on the seventh issue, the idea of generations and going back to the beginning came around,” Corbetta explains about the latest edition, which features a serene Rodrigo Calazans on the cover. “I wanted to go back to the main concept behind the magazine, which was to celebrate Brazilian male models above all, and put them front and center.”

That idea of the backward glance finds its clearest expression in a retrospective of sorts featuring a wealth of images of Soldati from photographer Cristiano Madureira‘s archive, going back over a decade to the model’s earliest Polaroids. We track Soldati’s maturation from fresh-faced teenager into strong-jawed adult, offering a uniquely expansive view of a time-tested career. Teixeira also contributed a series of personal images as he hits the waves, coolly surfing through a curve of luminescent blue. For Corbetta, finding new ways into the lives of the models he features is one of the key distinctions of Made in Brazil. “All of that is a throwback to how we started, with the boys very involved in the concept and the creation of the issue.”

One feature that is sure to find lots of love on Tumblr is Lachowski’s opening editorial, shot in gorgeous black-and-white by Greg Vaughan and styled by Matthew Marden. Corbetta notes that this is Lachowski’s first major story since the birth of his son, and the model brings a new grown-up sensibility to the arresting images. “He is a big part of how the magazine started, and was the cover of our second issue, and I hadn’t worked with him in over a year,” Corbetta says. “In that time he became a dad and was doing a lot of more commercial work, so I decided to cast him for one of the main fashion stories to make sure he would have a more fun day in the studio, and for us to do something we hadn’t done together yet.”

Coming at the same time as several major changes in Corbetta’s personal life, this seventh issue also marks a transition point of sorts. “For the first time, I felt like I didn’t need to prove anything anymore and could afford to experiment a bit more, and after several big productions, I could go back to the simpler and freer images that started the magazine,” he explains. “This issue is about wiping the slate clean.” Despite the challenges of producing an independent publication twice a year, Corbetta says that it has been an undeniably rewarding experience. “The greatest part of doing the magazine is the response and the support from the fans, and knowing that many people collect the issues and place them on coffee tables along with photography and art books.” As he looks ahead to the next round, he remains well-aware that his path so far has been, in many ways, a fortunate one. “It just happened, and never in a million years did I imagine when we launched the first one that I would even get to do a second issue, let alone a seventh.”

It’s Official!

L’Officiel, that is.. Arthur Sales, the 19 year old Brazilian beauty has 200 pages and the cover of the latest L’Officiel Hommes. Milan Vukmirovic’s last couple of special issues devoted to solo young men were Jon Kortajarena and Andres Velencoso Segura, models with super staying power. Carrying a whole magazine requires an engaging intensity, chameleon like beauty and the ability to model one’s socks off. Looks like there’s a new sheriff in town.

Bits & Bytes: The D&G Quintet

January 11th, 2010 |Posted by Betty

21
The young men of the season’s liveliest party have been revealed. We recognize Thomas Hoefnagels, Sebastian Lund, former MOTW Vincent Dienst and Andrea Petri for D&G S/S 10 by Mario Testino. Readers, help us out with the 5th young man. (image courtesy of IMM Bruxelles).

—————————————————————————————————————

Modeling:
Lily Cole talks about the making of Dr. Parnassus.

I did a quick interview about the modeling industry for my friend, photographer Lara Rossignol. Lara is a true professional, having shot everyone from Johnny Depp and Liv Tyler to Jermaine Dupre.

She is not the Jersey Shore, that’s for sure! Model Jacquelyn Jablonski‘s on The NY Times Nifty 50.

Made in Brazil said it first.. Arthur Sales would be major… and here’s the first of much to come.

Fashion and photography:
Venetia Scott is one of our favorite stylists out there.. here is a fantastic interview she did with Ponystep. What an insight into her world.

Douglas Perrett‘s malendar (male calendar) is really too cute with some of the top up and coming straight male photographers, including Sebastian Kim and Dan Martensen. Buy it here.

Tsk, tsk.. just more tsk from us for Ms. Lindsay Lohan about her straight out copying of up and coming designer Jen Kao and her dress for Lindsay’s new line, especially as Lindsay was photographed wearing Jen’s dress a month ago. As my little girl would say: Not Nice!

Miscellaneous:
And in case you haven’t heard… Lady Gaga is the new creative director of Polaroid. If she can’t get our beloved Polaroid into the modern era, we don’t know who can.

In the NY Times’ story about MDC’s special preview of V’s size issue, one of the funniest comments was this person who called Karl Lagerfeld a “vacuous, vapid, old parvenu”.

Easy on the Eyes

November 12th, 2009 |Posted by Betty

No one does bathing suits better than the Brazilians (say THAT 5 times fast). Our friends at Butch sent us pictures of their new campaign (yes it is summer down there) with hot new face Arthur Sales photographed by Cristiano Madureira. Check out Get Butch for a 4-minute video of Arthur, as well as a video of the runway show at Fashion Rio back in June, which was loaded with new boys from Brazil. If you can drag your eyes away from Arthur’s perfection, you’ll see that the suits are perfect for that vacation in Rio you are planning right about now.

Bits and Bytes: Arthur Arrives

Arriving this week is the amazing Arthur Sales from Recife, Brazil. Made in Brazil’s Juliano who has been tracking him since Arthur walked the DSquared show back in June, calls him one of the best Brazilian kids in a long time. Onset he is apparently like Caroline Trentini reincarnated as a guy. For more pics, click here. (with Elite Milan)

Dynamic duo: Marc Jacobs and Juergen Teller; Interview reviews the Marc Jacobs advertising book and for more Juergen fans, Cathyn Horyn talks to Juergen Teller.

Watch Karl Lagerfeld shoot Baptiste Giabiconi for Purple Fashion, with a giraffe and what looks like his cell phone. See some of his editorial here.

More Baptiste news, Naomi Campbell is envious of him!!

Here’s video of Jourdan Dunn and Chanel Iman from the i-D shoot. They talk about the pressures of being an ethnic model in this industry. The video is amazing, watch the girls work it, i-D’s signature winks and all, while Edward Enninful talks about the beauties.

More MTA’s (model turned actor). This time, it’s a male model, Trevor Donovan, who has shot D&G with Steven Klein and A&F with Bruce Weber and is on the next 90210.

WWD calls it the return of the “himbo” but mistakenly calls it a Numero shoot by Karl Lagerfeld, when it REALLY should be Lara Stone and the boys’ DSquared campaign by Mert and Marcus… Hmph, if they need help with boys they can certainly call us.. We know all the top males there is to know.

Supreme’s showcards reverberate down in Australia.

Mariano Vivanco shoots Megan Fox for Wonderland Magazine. She’s one of the few actresses that look like they could have been a model, especially in this moody shoot. See pics and behind the scenes video.

September’s Vogue Italia editorial by Steven Meisel has re-energized and re-invigorated me in a way that no editorial has done in a long time. The messiness, the fun, the contorted faces, the in your face energy is completely exuberant and what we need during these dour times. Vive la revolution!
For the entire ed, scanned by the lovely Diciassette, see Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
