Muito Marlon

May 6th, 2015 |Posted by jonathanshia

Made in Brazil devotes their latest issue to one of male modeling’s most iconic Brazilians, Marlon Teixeira, whose curly locks, tanned skin, and toned abs have made him a constant presence in campaigns and magazines throughout his many years in the industry. The incomparable Bruce Weber opens the issue with a hand-drawn sketch of Teixeira and a tender introduction comparing him to “some unexplainable aquatic mystery.”

In the rest of the issue, Milan Vukmirovic shoots Teixeira in a collection of vintage sports cars dressed by George Cortina in little more than a fur throw, while Cristiano Madureira finds him at home with his surfboard on Santa Catarina. Fellow Brazilian superstar Caroline Trentini joins Teixeira for a classically clean feature by Gui Paganini styled by Renata Correa, while Rodrigo Calazans, Diego Miguel, and Leo Bruno all also star in their own editorials. After the success of the previous International Issue, all-American Calvin Klein favorite Clark Bockelman holes up in a rustic beach shack in a story by Matthew Scrivens styled by Benjamin Sturgill, bringing together an issue that offers the best of Brazil to the world and vice versa. Take a look at our exclusive preview of the new issue, out Friday, below.

The Necklace Affair

January 13th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

As fashion films become the default means of editorial storytelling, a new crop of directors have been making their mark with compelling shorts that boast cinematic production values and elegant styling. Sandro Suppnig‘s romantic tales feature beautiful women with expensive taste and complex relationships. His latest ‘The Necklace Affair‘ is a sumptuous piece with Vanessa Hegelmaier as a tortured trophy wife: the clip is chic, sleek and packs a whole lot of drama into less than a minute. MDC caught up with the enterprising Mr. Suppnig to talk casting, castles and doing something beyond the typical fashion movie.

MDC: How did you come up with the idea for this film?

SANDRO: The fashion focus of the whole piece is jewelry. However I wanted to do something a bit different than a regular fashion film,  something very cinematic that tells a real story. To use the necklace as a metaphor for a chain, holding this unhappy relationship together was a rather dark and uncommon approach for a beauty piece, but Linn Lomo, whose jewelry was featured, loved it.

My main inspirations for the film certainly were Giorgiana, Duchess of Devonshire‘s destiny, whose biography I read last spring, as well as Tilda Swinton’s brilliant and visually stunning movie “I Am Love“.

MDC: What was the casting selection like?

SANDRO: Since we were shooting in the middle of August, in the middle of nowhere, regarding the fashion-world map, the casting was rather difficult. Additionally it was really important to get talent that was excited about the project and didn’t mind the hard conditions. Vanessa Hegelmaier turned out to be the perfect fit for the female lead and I honestly could not have been happier. Besides being incredibly professional and stunningly beautiful she really identified with her role and acted very naturally. In combination with the dashing Ferdi Sibbel they made an amazing couple and their on-set chemistry blew us all away!

Oliver Hirschbiegel, who played the Lord, is a very well known and respected Oscar nominated movie director. I have known him for years and I thought he was perfect for the role. When he did me this incredible favor however, and accepted to play the part, I got pretty nervous.

MDC: The location was incredible – how did you find that amazing castle? 

SANDRO: We shot in Austria, where I’m originally from. There are many castles, more or less well maintained and still owned by old aristocratic families. The problem was to find and get access to one close to Vienna, as we only had one shoot day and the talent was flown in. That we managed that, happened thanks to my amazing producer on this job Ernst Mican from Mican Film. He used all his connections and got on the phone with Princesses and Dukes until finally a Count referred him to a Baron, whom he then persuaded to open his doors! What awaited us was sheer incredible: A 750 year old moated castle in the lush countryside of Lower Austria full of history and Serendipity. It even had a ghost…

MDC: Your last film that we saw, ‘An Obsession’ also dealt with an intense romantic relationship. What makes this theme resonate for you? 

SANDRO: Oh lord! Well I would lie not to admit that some of it certainly is auto-biographical. I’m a very passionate guy, who loves love and I think some of that translates into my work in one way or another. Also stories like this one might be a way for me to cope with past experiences and emotions.

MDC: What can we look forward to next?

SANDRO: My music video for the song “Take Me” by Backroom Students, featuring Brazilian bombshell Diego Miguel will be released within the next few weeks. I’m also working on my first short film for cinema which I will hopefully be shooting this summer in France. Stay tuned!

Jazz Age

October 4th, 2010 |Posted by Janelle

Greg Lotus takes readers back in time with a Vogue Italia spread that harks back to the look of the 20s and 30s; with Georgina Stojiljkovic sporting the perfect bob and Diego Miguel starring as equally chic beau, the story captures the grandeur of the era perfectly. The combination of luxurious styling and Lotus’ keen eye makes for an especially appealing editorial.
